Sungai Korbu Mini Hydro
The development of the 7 MW mini hydro plant is at Sungai Korbu, Sungai Siput, Perak Darul Ridzuan. The Plant is a runoff river concept mini hydro and the generated power/electricity is exported via 33kV transmission conductor to TNB distribution system. The powerhouse is comprised of 2 units of 3.5 MW turbine generators complete with common auxiliaries. The facility shall operate on a system of hydroelectric power generation using the river flows of Sungai Korbu.
In the process of producing the power, water shall be diverted from the upstream reaches of the river downward via penstock to power house to transform the potential energy to kinetic energy that will enable spinning of the electromechanical system to produce electric power.
