Transmission Substation Development Kulim Hi-Tech Park

The Project

The Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP) is the first high technology industrial park in Malaysia. The park is hugely successful and has experienced exponential growth. Due to the increasing customer-led demand, transmission and distribution expansion was necessary. 

Our Approach

  • The Challenge
    Develop a cost effective and technically suitable solution for the expansion of the Kulim Hitech Park transmission infrastructure to cater for existing and future customer requirements. 
  • The Solution
    ESB International undertook network studies to produce an optimal expansion plan. This plan covered required capital investment, future customer requirements and operational capabilities. A new 132/33/11 kV substation suitable to cater for current and future customer demand with enhanced operability of the entire Kulim network.

What we delivered

A power system simulator (PPETM) modelled the Kulim network. We developed an optimal solution to cater to the current and expected load, delivering maximum operational flexibility and cost-effectiveness.  

ESB International undertook the tendering and Owners Engineer role for the expansion project. 

The Results

  • Transmission and Distribution network was optimised for current and future load growth.  
  • Network losses optimised. 
  • Network operational capability optimised. 
  • Flexible and cost-effective solution.  
  • The substation was commissioned successfully in 2017.

What we do

We offer a comprehensive range of solutions for both public and private clients, right through the life cycle of their projects and the energy value chain.
