SEDA, PHTP inks hydro-power training pact

Sustainable Energy Development Authority Malaysia (SEDA) has entered into a partnership with the Perak State Development Corporation, via Perak Hi Tech Park (PHTP) Sdn Bhd, to provide training on how to maintain small hydro-power plants.

The introduction of this course will benefit many prospective hydro-power plants developers.

"One of the gaps identified by SEDA is the need to address the lack of competent human capital in terms of technical knowledge in designing, constructing and maintaining small hydro-power systems in the country.

"Hence, the collaboration with PHTP is most timely to address this gap," said SEDA in a statement today. 

Under the partnership, PHTP will source technology experts from Brodarski Institute in Croatia to conduct the inaugural training, the first technical cooperation between Malaysia and Croatia. -- Bernama
