Dato’ Fuaad also presented staff who had served the plant for 20 years or more with certificates of appreciation.
PDPP received the license to operate as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) from the Government in 1993 and the construction of the RM700 million plant at Tanjung Gemok, Port Dickson soon commenced. In 2014, Malakoff acquired Sime Darby Power Generation Division, making PDPP a wholly owned subsidiary of Malakoff.
