INSTEP dan Yayasan Pendidikan MAIDAM Terus Sokong Agenda TVET Nasional melalui Program Latihan Teknikal

Kuala Nerus, Malaysia, 27 Mei 2024 – INSTEP dengan kerjasama Yayasan Pendidikan MAIDAM (YPM), Terengganu, telah melaksanakan Program Latihan Teknikal Zakat Wakalah melibatkan anak-anak asnaf fakir dan miskin di negeri Terengganu.

Zakat Wakalah merupakan dasar pengembalian wang zakat oleh MAIDAM kepada entiti yang membayar zakat kepada Pusat Pungutan Zakat untuk diagihkan sendiri kepada asnaf yang layak. Dana As-Syakirin sebagai pemegang amanah yang menguruskan zakat PETRONAS mengambil peluang ini untuk menaja 27 asnaf terpilih untuk melanjutkan pelajaran mereka dalam bidang TVET minyak dan gas melalui program latihan teknikal selama 3 bulan di INSTEP.

Pengurus Besar INSTEP, En. Azhar Ahmad hadir memberikan ucapan aluan kepada syarikat perkhidmatan Terengganu yang hadir pada sesi Engage & Connect

Selama 12 minggu latihan di INSTEP, pelajar dilatih dalam pelbagai kemahiran asas berkenaan minyak dan gas iaitu pembaikan elektrikal dan mekanikal. Selain itu modul sampingan seperti Bahasa Inggeris, Pendidikan Islam dan kelestarian turut disertakan. Pelajar juga dilengkapkan dengan program pensijilan seperti AESP, First Aider, OGSP dan T-BOSIET.

Ini membolehkan para pelajar yang akan menamatkan program latihan ini mempunyai kebolehpasaran yang tinggi untuk berkerja dengan syarikat penyedia perkhidmatan minyak dan gas.

Sesi Engage and Connect dilaksanakan pada hari ini, merupakan satu platform untuk para pelajar tajaan Zakat Wakalah mendapat pendedahan mengenai bidang perkerjaan di dalam industri tenaga. Turut hadir pada sesi ini adalah En. Mohd Firdaus bin Mamat, YPM dan wakil syarikat penyedia perkhidmatan minyak dan gas beroperasi di Terengganu iaitu ANZ Engineering Sdn Bhd, EPIC OG Sdn Bhd, Elektro Serve (M) Sdn Bhd dan UBF Maintenance Sdn Bhd.

INSTEP Supports New Energy Transition through Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Project in Collaboration with Gentari

Institut Teknologi Petroleum PETRONAS (INSTEP) has been active in promoting sustainability among its employees in endorsing support for PETRONAS’ sustainable aspiration, including the recent launch of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) project in collaboration with Gentari, the clean energy solutions entity owned by PETRONAS. The project started producing electricity in December last year and is anticipated to power up to 1 Megawatt (MW) of full capacity generation.

The 1.4MWp system is expected to generate 1,927.240 Megawatt Hour (MWh) of clean energy per annum, which amounts close to 30% of INSTEP’s overall energy requirement, effectively reducing 1285.47 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually.

For further research and application purposes, INSTEP’s Solar PV 1 and 2 Project will furnish Gentari with valuable data and insights regarding its effectiveness and performance in Malaysia’s tropical environment. INSTEP has installed solar panels on the rooftops of several of its facilities, including academic and office buildings.

The Commercial Operation Launch event was hosted by the Gentari team at INSTEP on August 24, 2023, with the presence of Gentari’s Head of Renewable Energy (Malaysia and Southeast Asia), Mr Sy Malek Faisal Sy Mohamad, to officiate the ceremony. The event also served as an expression of gratitude to the project team from the Campus Asset Management Department at INSTEP, marked by a Focused Recognition presentation by the Gentari team. To add to the enjoyment of the event, a special electric vehicle (EV) was brought for test-drives.

Mr. Idris was all smiles during the EV car test drive brought by Gentari on the day of the event.

INSTEP, as the technical training arm of PETRONAS, exemplifies its dedication to delivering excellence in learning experiences by demonstrating its involvement in the solar PV project. The installation of a 5 (kilowatt) kW Solar Rooftop Photovoltaic (PV) system at the INSTEP Training Facility has been carried out by Gentari for educational purposes, including research, data analysis, and training activities.

“With achieving net zero carbon emission as our ultimate goal, the progress towards undergoing a just energy transition is also crucial. In PETRONAS’ transition to renewable energy and lower carbon businesses, INSTEP plays the role in retooling human capital equation through the delivery of sustainable technical learning solutions, to upskill and reskill our current and future workforces to help them adapt to new technologies and processes to develop new energy solutions,” Mr. Idris b Ibrahim, INSTEP Chief Executive Officer commented during the event.

Adding this project to INSTEP’s sustainability commitments, several of INSTEP’s own sustainable initiatives include rainwater harvesting for internal use, a food composter to recycle food waste into fertilizers, and the installation of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and high mast lighting to reduce energy consumption.

As part of MFT 50:30:0, INSTEP places a high priority on sustainable growth to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The launch of this project serves the purpose of supporting INSTEP’s role in becoming an active participant in the transition to cleaner energy sources.

“With achieving net zero carbon emission as our ultimate goal, the progress towards undergoing a just energy transition is also crucial. In PETRONAS’ transition to renewable energy and lower carbon businesses, INSTEP plays the role in retooling human capital equation through the delivery of sustainable technical learning solutions, to upskill and reskill our current and future workforces to help them adapt to new technologies and processes to develop new energy solutions,” Mr. Idris b Ibrahim, INSTEP Chief Executive Officer commented during the event.

Adding this project to INSTEP’s sustainability commitments, several of INSTEP’s own sustainable initiatives include rainwater harvesting for internal use, a food composter to recycle food waste into fertilizers, and the installation of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and high mast lighting to reduce energy consumption.

As part of MFT 50:30:0, INSTEP places a high priority on sustainable growth to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The launch of this project serves the purpose of supporting INSTEP’s role in becoming an active participant in the transition to cleaner energy sources.
