(EnergyAsia, July 21, Monday) — ‘POWER-GEN Asia’, a conference and exhibition for the power generation and transmission and distribution industries organised by Pennwell, will be held at the KLCC convention centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from October 21 to 23.


POWER-GEN Asia will feature over 75 presentations and will include two plenary sessions on ‘Regional Fuel Developments – Implications for the Power Sector’ chaired by Norman Kegler from Hong Kong-based Independent Power Producers Forum, and ‘Acquisition & Investments’ chaired by Daniel Liew from Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP.


The event will feature over 125 exhibitors from around the world and more than 5000 visitors from over 50 countries. 


Pennwell conference director Nigel Blackaby said: “We are excited by the quality of this year’s conference programme. The strategic and technical content provides great information and educational opportunities for all power industry executives to observe, learn and update their skills and knowledge of emerging technologies and key topics that will affect the future of the region’s power generation industry.


“This year’s programme offers a great range of speakers, from across the industry and around the world, sharing their experiences and skills. We are delighted that presentations will also be made by some of the key industry policy makers and establishments, such as Suruhanjaya Tenaga (Energy Commission) and Pusat Tenaga Malaysia, which will provide great interest to the industry.”


Penwell’s event director, Glenn Ensor, said, “The sustained growth of POWER-GEN Asia is important in maintaining the on-going support of organisations such as the Ministry of Energy, Water and Communications, Tenaga Nasional Berhad and the Energy Commission. We are delighted with their endorsement, and the on-going support of existing exhibitors, whilst welcoming new companies who will experience the benefits and opportunities of being involved with POWER-GEN Asia.”
