The HAPUA Council Members Joint Statement 2017

Emphasizing our commitment towards ASEAN energy security and economic community, the HAPUA Council is committed towards:

  1. Implementing the first phase of “Lao PDR-Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore (LTMS) Power Integration Project (PIP)” by January 2018, which will optimize the use of resources and promote economic cooperation on multilateral power interconnections and trading in the region;
  2. Pursuing the three (3) ASEAN Power Grid (APG) identified as priority projects under the APAEC 2016-2025 Phase I, in addition to the eight (8) projects already implemented, which will more than double the power exchange and purchase in the region from the current 5,200 MW to 10,800 MW by 2020, and further increase to over 16,000 MW post – 2020;
  3. Pursuing the development of a high level plan for the realization of multilateral power trading in the APG that covers three phases, including a comprehensive feasibility study, design and implementation, to deliver a fully operable multilateral power trading in ASEAN;
  4. Contributing to the reduction of carbon emission from primary energy by supporting the ASEAN target of achieving 23% of renewable energy mix by 2025 from the current level at about 11% (Total Primary Energy Supply, TPES), while maintaining system reliability and power quality;
  5. Enhancing power reliability and quality by modernizing the Grid system in ASEAN Member States, including utilizing Smart Grid technologies and providing technical and non-technical expertise, cooperation and human capital development.

HAPUA WG5 Workshop on Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) – Smart Meters

The rise of smart metering technology has gained widespread attention in recent years.  Utilities have embraced the innovation with open arms, investing millions in large-scale implementation projects meant to catalyze the growth of a nationwide smart grid. Utilities have proven capable partners in these efforts.

As part of the rollout of smart meters in Malaysia, Tenaga Nasional Berhad hosted  the HAPUA WG5 Workshop on Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) – Smart Meters from 14-15 January 2019 in Kuala Lumpur.

The workshop was design to assist utilities to assess the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) – Smart Meter projects carried out in various parts of the world. The engagement with stakeholders who play a big role in the success or failures of these rollouts was also deliberated in detail. Business case especially with respect to the framework of electricity industry in the region was discussed and simple cost benefit analysis was conducted. Various success stories and failures was also shared with the participants. A total of 23 delegates from DES Brunei, PLN & ICON+ of Indonesia, NGCP of Philippines, SP Powergrid Ltd of Singapore, PEA of Thailand, EVN & Central Power Corporation of Vietnam, Sarawak Energy Berhad and Tenaga Nasional Berhad of  Malaysia attended the workshop. The workshop was facilitated by Dato’ Mohandass S. Nair of Tenaga Nasional Berhad.

.

Among the key resolution of the workshop:

 

“Suggest to continue interactions within this HAPUA AMI Smart Meter by having annual meeting/training + sharing sessions. Future topics to consider to include roll-out challenges + solutions, new technology (NBIOT), use of smart meter data and beyond smart metering capabilities.”

HAPUA WG5 Workshop on Implementing RCM Analysis

 

Electricity of Vietnam hosted the above workshop from 7-11 January 2019 at Laly Hydro Power Company, Pleiku City, Vietnam.

 

Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) is a corporate-level maintenance strategy that is implemented to optimize the maintenance program of a plant or facility. The final outcome of an RCM program is the implementation of a specific maintenance strategy on each of the assets of the plant. In the case of power generation plants, this would include critical assets such as synchronous generators, turbines, generator transformers, etc.

 

The challenges for power plant owners is to increase reliability and reduce cost. Reliability-based maintenance is a proactive approach to helping power plants achieve better results of delivering the highest availability and reliability at the lowest cost.

 

The ultimate goal of RCM is to achieve optimum environmental, health and safety compliance, and desired plant operability, by establishing the most economical balance of corrective, preventive, and predictive maintenance activities to ensure plant assets perform as required.

 

15 participants from Laly Hydro Power Company attended the workshop facilitated by Mr Fazle Ayob and Mr Marwan Mohamed of Tenaga Nasional Berhad
