PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The Trans Borneo power grid project will enable Sarawak (Malaysia) to export additional electricity to West Kalimantan (Indonesia) thereby generating additional income for SEB. It will also help to diversify West Kalimantan’s energy generation portfolio by retiring inefficient oil-based power plants, while reducing CO2 emissions in the Borneo Island.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Trans Borneo power grid, also known as Sarawak to West Kalimantan Link, is a 275kV transmission line that is currently under construction in the island of Borneo, Malaysia. It is being developed by Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB), Malaysia’s state-owned energy company and P.T. Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero), Indonesia’s state-owned power utility.
