Citizens have been pleased with the vaccination roll out thus far, many have gone on to social media praising on how systematic the whole experience has been. Since most of the venue’s have been convention centres, the vast halls do need good maintenance, upkeep and more importanly uninterupted power supply.
This is where Tenaga Nasional comes in, the utility board has been working before hand to ensure the facilities are fully functional and all anticipation are made. TNB Chief Distribution Network Officer, Wan Nazmy says that the minute MOSTI Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced the new five new mega vaccination centres (PPV) TNB initiated monitoring and inspections to ensure the supply system at the five locations is in an orderly and reliable manner.
“As for locations with TNB installations that needed upgrading to enable remote monitoring and control of electricity supply, work is currently being carried out,” he added. The five venues includes three in Selangor, The Mines Convention Centre in Seri Kembangan; Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Puncak Alam Campus; and Setia City Convention Centre, both in Shah Alam. In addition, another two mega PPVs will be set up at the National Stadium compound in Bukit Jalil and Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). A massive undertaking only matched by TNB’s commitment in ensuring everything goes smoothly.
This is a collective effort between Ministries including MOH and how all parties come together for a common good, there are now 382 existing PPVs as well as the five that will be set, all these need to have proper electricity supply for the immunisation programme. Although there has been glitches, the priority is to recover the supply to PPVs and 40 Vaccine Storage Centres (PSV) in the event of a disruption. Both these location’s storage facilities are constantly monitored and measures can be quickly taken to prevent supply interruption from happening.
