YTL Power International is Malaysia's first Independent Power Producer (IPP). In 1993, our wholly-owned subsidiary, YTL Power Generation Sdn Bhd, was awarded Malaysia's first IPP licence for the Paka and Pasir Gudang Power Stations following the Malaysian Government's decision to privatise the country's power industry.

The Paka and Pasir Gudang Power Stations utilise combined cycle gas turbine technology and have a combined generation capacity of 1,212 MW. YTL raised RM2.66 billion to finance the project, the largest private, Ringgit-denominated funding at that time. The project's financing solution which was critical to its success also included the first long-dated bond issue for a greenfield project (RM1.5 billion) which was fully subscribed by the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).
