Background on Plant

The power station was opened in March 1987 by then Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, and the station was named after him. In terms of power producing capacity, it remains the largest power station in Malaysia, despite the commissioning of several new power stations with 700MW steam turbines. It is also the first coal-fired power plant in the country. In addition to its four coal-fire units generating 1,600-MW, the station has two 300-MW units fired by natural gas and bunker oil, and two 110-MW units fired by natural gas and distillate fuel.

Kapar Energy Ventures Sdn Bhd is a joint venture company between Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) and Malakoff Berhad, with an equity holding of 60% TNB and 40% Malakoff Berhad. Kapar Energy Ventures Sdn Bhd (KEV) owns, operates and maintains SSAAPS since 9 July 2004, after successful acquisition of the power plant from TNB.

The plant was designed by Minconsult, a Malaysian engineering consultancy.

The power station ash pond is a sanctuary for migratory birds that stop over en route from Siberia to Australia.
