Malakoff Corporation Bhd through its wholly owned subsidiary, Malakoff Radiance Sdn Bhd, signed a solar power purchase agreement (SPPA) with Gas Malaysia Bhd for the development, operation and maintenance of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at three Gas Malaysia sites.
The sites are the Malaysia Gas headquarters in Shah Alam, the Southern Regional Office in Pasir Gudang, Johor and the Eastern Regional Office in Gebeng, Kuantan.
“In addition, Malakoff will also install an electric vehicle (EV) charging station at Gas Malaysia Headquarters and Gas Malaysia at Jalan Gurney, Kuala Lumpur,” said Malakoff in a statement today (Nov 14).
The implementation of solar energy solutions and the installation of carbon-free mobility infrastructure through this collaboration is a step towards realizing its commitment to achieve a 500 megawatt (MW) solar project within the Albukhary Group of Companies, and at the same time support Gas Malaysia’s aspirations in improving environmental sustainability.
“We believe by integrating EV charging solutions into the corporate infrastructure serves as a tangible embodiment of the organization’s core values and unwavering commitment to sustainability.
“This initiative really shows the dedication of both Malakoff and Gas Malaysia to align our actions with our commitment to the use of green energy, becoming an example to the industry,” said Malakoff’s Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib.
To date, Malakoff holds a total of 151 MW of renewable energy generation capacity under its portfolio, consisting of acquired projects for large-scale solar (LSS), rooftop solar (RTS) and small hydropower generation.
In an effort to ensure a cleaner and greener world, the SPPA is part of Malakoff’s commitment towards Sustainable Development Goal No. 7 of the United Nations (UN), affordable and clean energy that focuses on ensuring access to affordable, secure and sustainable energy for everyone.
