TNB installs 132 kV submarine cable to Pulau Langkawi Island

The Malaysian utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is installing a 26.5 km long 132 kV submarine cable to deliver energy from the national grid to Pulau Langkawi Island. The work to lay the submarine cable connecting the Kuala Perlis Transmission Main Intake (PMU) with the Teluk Apau PMU in Pulau Langkawi began in October 2018 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The project will enhance the reliability, quality, stability and efficiency of the electricity supply to Pulau Langkawi, which is currently receiving supply from the national grid through two other existing submarine cables.
