Under the deal, Sesco is committing to provide 90 megawatts of electricity supply at 275kV to the LNG complex from March 2024 for a term of 20 years, according to a joint statement.

In addition, this move would booost clean energy consumption and decarbonise operations of the complex, in tandem with Petronas’ aspiration of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, the statement said.

Sarawak Energy’s electricity supply is predominantly renewable following its transition to renewable energy resources under the SCORE strategic initiative.
