Malaysia exports electricity to Indonesia

KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia said it has successfully transmitted 70 megawatt of power to Kalimantan, Indonesia, in the first cross-border connection, paving the way for more such exports under a regional plan.

The Asian Development Bank-funded project supplies electricity from Mambong, Sarawak, to Bengkayang in western Kalimantan, which is the Indonesian name for Borneo on a 47km double-circuit grid line.
