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.
- 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.
- 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.
