The Energy Market Authority (EMA) has announced that the electricity interconnector between Singapore and Malaysia has been upgraded, in a move to improve energy connectivity between the two countries. After the upgrade, capacity of the interconnector has been doubled and can now accommodate around 1,000 MW of bidirectional electricity flow.

The electricity inter-connector is used for the cross-border power trade in the Laos -Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore Power Integration Project (LTMS-PIP). As a part of the project, Singapore imports upto 100 MW of hydropower from Laos through interconnections in Thailand and Malaysia.
