KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 10): Langkawi’s electric system, now fully automated, will be further enhanced through the installation of a 26.5km submarine cable that will deliver energy from the National Grid to the resort island.

Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) chief grid officer Datuk Ir Husaini Husin said the effort to expand the 132 kilovolt (kV) submarine cable is part of TNB’s capital expenditure to strengthen the country’s electricity infrastructure.

“The work to lay the submarine cable connecting the Kuala Perlis Transmission Main Intake (PMU) with the Teluk Apau PMU in Pulau Langkawi began last October, and is expected to be completed by year end,” he said in a statement today.
