TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) has awarded RM16.9 billion worth of contracts to vendor companies under its Bumiputera Manufacturers and Contractors Programme (PPKB) from 1995 till 2019.

Chief procurement officer Amir Mahmood Abdullah said this involves 822 companies, comprising 32 suppliers and 790 contractors.

“The number of contracts awarded this year will depend on our application to the Energy Commission (EC), where new applications are still being considered.

“We have allocated a capital expenditure of RM7 billion for new infrastructure and development projects for this year,” he told reporters after the launch of the “Upskilling Programme for TNB contractors” here today.
