INNIO, Concord Group to develop four biogas plants in Malaysia

INNIO has signed an agreement with the Concord Group to develop four biogas power plants in Malaysia using palm oil waste.

INNIO and Concord Group signed a memorandum of understanding to build the four facilities in various parts of Malaysia. The project emphasises Malaysia’s efforts to achieve its COP26 commitments in moving away from fossil fuels and increasing renewable energy projects. The country recently raised its National Renewable Energy Capacity target from a 20% increase to a 31% increase of renewables in its energy mix by 2025.

The biogas plants will deliver sustainable power to the grid while capturing methane. Each plant is expected to operate two INNIO Jenbacher high-efficiency biogas engines, collectively delivering more than 8 MW of power to the grid.

The Jenbacher Type 4 engines, for which INNIO will also supply long-term servicing, are known for their dependability, efficiency, and fuel and solution flexibility. This makes them an excellent technology to advance Malaysia’s plans to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.

“INNIO has more than 500 Jenbacher engines currently operating on biogas and deploying about 1 GWh in the ASEAN region,” said Carsten Dommermuth, vice-president and general manager APAC at INNIO Jenbacher.

“Our Jenbacher Type 4 biogas engine fleet delivers reliable and fuel-efficient heat and power, where the additional surplus energy is fed into the power grid as a renewable, dispatchable power source. We are pleased to power with the Concord Group to provide technology that helps Malaysia meet its climate goals.”

Datuk Khairuddin bin Tan Sri Mohd Hussin, CEO of Concord Renewable Energy, commented: “Having successfully worked with INNIO in the past, we can think of no better technology to support our clean energy goals. We look forward to continuing to work with INNIO’s advanced Jenbacher technology to help us meet growing energy demand while reducing emissions.”
