Malakoff is one of the larger independent water and power producer in Malaysia. Its new 1,000 MW coal-fired powet plant in Tanjung Bin (located at South of Johor just across Singapore) is slated to start operations in March 2016.

Analysts expect the new plant to contribute another RM1 billion to RM1.2 billion to Malakoff's annual revenue.
Malakoff's shares trade at RM1.76 and it has a current market capitalisation of RM8.8 billion.
