Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia), N.U.R Power Sdn Bhd (NUR Power) and JS Solar Sdn Bhd (JS Solar) will jointly develop an inaugural Smart and Green Industrial Park within the Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP), Kedah, Malaysia.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was formalized recently, collaborative efforts will be centered around the study, design, and formulation of the Green and Smart Energy Transition Roadmap for KHTP, with ambitions of setting a notable benchmark for the nation’s sustainable energy sector, Huawei said in a statement on Monday.

According to the statement, the partnership will see NUR Power undertaking the role of strategic independent power utility operator while Huawei Malaysia takes on the role of the technology enabler.

JS Solar will serve as the strategic fulfilment partner responsible for the project development.

Key tasks will include the integration of Huawei Malaysia’s Solar Smart PV technology into NUR Power’s infrastructure to enhance energy generation efficiency and reliability, as well as the implementation of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) solutions to mitigate renewable energy variability and further enable more renewable energy adoption in KHTP.

Huawei Malaysia will also assist NUR Power in establishing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure to foster the growth of electric mobility in the region.

Additionally, the three companies will jointly embark on research studies for integrating grid-forming solutions into the KHTP utility grid.

This involves exploring cutting-edge technologies and methodologies, such as Smart Solar PV Inverters, to improve the grid’s adaptability to variable renewable energy (RE) sources.

The evaluation and implementation of Low Voltage Ride Through (LVRT) solutions will also be undertaken to fortify the grid’s resiliency during sudden voltage dips and ensure grid stability during unforeseen events.

Huawei Malaysia Vice President of Digital Power Business Chong Chern Peng said Huawei Malaysia is proud to work with NUR Power and JS Solar to deliver cutting-edge RE capabilities to the inaugural Smart and Green Industrial Park.

“Huawei Digital Power is poised to revolutionize the generation and consumption of clean power for the project, drawing upon its expertise in end-to-end energy solutions,

“This collaboration promises to elevate KHTP’s standing as a forward-looking industrial park, offering a sustainable framework where manufacturing businesses and global companies can flourish,” he added.

NUR Power Group Managing Director Ikwan Hafiz Jamaludin said that at NUR Power, they believe in the power of collaboration to usher in a new era of industrial sustainability.

“Our joint initiative with Huawei Malaysia and JS Solar is a bold step towards a greener, more resilient future,

“It is not just about powering industries; it is about empowering sustainable growth and eco-friendly practices across the nation,” he added.

JS Solar Managing Director Johnson Chai said that collaborating with Huawei and NUR Power, they will enhance our collective knowledge and capabilities, driving them to new heights in sustainable energy development through KHTP.

“By combining our expertise, we aim to not only set a notable benchmark for Malaysia’s sustainable energy sector but also to pave the way for a brighter, greener future for generations to come,” he added.

Founded in 1987, Huawei is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices.

The firm has 207,000 employees and it operates in more than 170 countries and regions, serving more than three billion people around the world.

NUR Power is a private limited company that specializes in gGeneration, transmission, distribution and retail of electricity in Malaysia.

The firm is recognized as Malaysia’s first and only Independent Power Utility (IPU) to be granted an exclusive right to sell electricity in Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP), Malaysia’s first fully integrated high-tech park with the economy focus on capital intensive high-and advance technology industries with research and development (R&D) and business functions.

With 20 over years of experiences, NUR Power has diversified into the renewable energy (RE) sector.

This strategic expansion, steered by its RE subsidiaries, signifies a transformative leap in supporting Malaysia’s RE ambitions while fortifying NUR Power’s existing business framework.

JS Solar is a subsidiary of NUR Power. This strategic alliance positions JS Solar for accelerated growth and expansion, solidifying its reputation as a trailblazer in the renewable energy sector.

Looking forward, JS Solar remains steadfast in its commitment to innovation, pushing the boundaries of sustainable practices, and driving the global renewable energy revolution to unprecedented heights.
