MALAYSIA: Foster Wheeler Plans RM50-million Biomass IPP in Perlis

Finland�s power producing company Foster Wheeler Group has agreed in principle to set up a RM50mil biomass-based energy plant in Kangar, Perlis. The company is scheduled to sign an agreement in December to set up a 10-MW independent power plant (IPP) in the state. The plant would procure raw materials for energy conversion from the state�s agriculture sector, particularly from the production of rice (hulls and stalks). Tenaga Nasional Bhd, Malaysia's national power company, has reportedly given its blessings for the biomass energy project, and it is expected to buy electricity from Foster Wheeler�s plant in Kangar.
