TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) has rescheduled almost 2,000 maintenance works which are not critical in the peninsula throughout the first phase of the total lockdown.

TNB chief distribution network officer Wan Nazmy Wan Mahmood said the rescheduling involves non-critical works which had been planned earlier.

“However, TNB frontliners will continue to carry out critical maintenance works despite the high number of Covid-19 cases, to ensure the TNB system remains in a good and organised condition,” he said in a statement.

He added that there are 404 critical maintenance works planned up to June 14 which involve Integrated Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centres, hospitals, vaccination centres and vaccine storage centres.

“Critical maintenance works still need to be carried out. We will issue notifications and set up mobile generator sets so as to minimise electricity interruptions,” Wan Nazmy said.

Critical maintenance includes equipment repairs based on condition-based monitoring.

“Maintenance work is important to ensure that TNB installations are always in a good condition, safe and efficient to avoid supply disruptions and repair irregularities,” he added.

Wan Nazmy also said the TNB team is always prepared for any unplanned and unexpected critical works, to avoid any undesired incidents like flashovers.

In the event of a power outage or any irregularities in TNB installations, users are asked to contact TNB CareLine at 15454 or Facebook TNB CareLine.
