“The O&M joint venture between GMR Energy and TNB Remaco will provide operation and maintenance services, performance improvement, testing and diagnostic, repair and refurbishment services for power plants in India,” according to a company statement.
For this purpose, the JV plans to set up a refurbishment and maintenance facility in India. This will be the first time that TNB Remaco shall be investing in a facility outside Malaysia.
