Renewable Energy Division (R.E.D)

Realising the growth of renewable energy in Malaysia, especially biogas, Anjur Ekar set out to evolve and establish this new division.

Together with an experienced team in the plantation and biogas industry, we bring the right and appropriate technology for application in the palm oil mill industry.

Using biogas with gas engines for power generation, we have the best track record in South East Asia, with our technology reaching out globally to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

Expanding further even further, we are embarking into solar hybrid projects for rural development whereby there is no local grid connection available. Energy is a need and critical for day to day living in rural areas.


Anjur Ekar Sdn Bhd has been a leader in providing machine-generated power generation solution for decades now, emphasizing on our aim to be a ‘Preferred power systems provider ‘ in Malayisa.

This is evident in the way we progressed from being a humble supplier of power generators to customizing and creating high quality power generation solution to suit our clients’ changing needs.

Anjur Ekar today has multiple licences and registrations including the Kementerian Kewangan Malaysia (Sijil Bumiputera) (MOF), MS ISO 9001 : 2008, Kementerian Kewangan Malaysia (Kontraktor)(MOF), Petronas Licensing , Pusat Khidmat Kontraktor (PKK) Gred Pendaftaran G7 (Bumiputera), CIDB Malaysia, Suruhanjaya Tenaga (ST), Kastam Dan Eksais Diraja Malaysia, Jabatan Keselamatan Dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan Selangor (DOSH), Akta Penyelarasan Perindustrian 1975 Lesen Pengilangan (MIDA).

These priorities and commitments in excellence gave rise to our household brand, AEP Gen power generator sets, which is custom built to cater to specific client needs.

We have also won over the trust and confidence of large foreign corporations that led to awards of distributorship and dealership of major brands like Nippon Sharyo (Japan) for its quality Sound Proof Canopy Power Generators, JCB for its Comprehensive Diesel Engine Power Generators range and Kohler (The U.S.A) for its Gas Engine Power Generators Clean and Reliable Power.

Realizing the growth of renewable energy especially biogas in Malaysia, Anjur Ekar Sdn Bhd has now evolved further and established a new division under its wings which is the Renewable Energy Division (RED).

Together with its experienced team in the plantation and biogas industry, Anjur Ekar Sdn Bhd brings the right and appropriate technology for the application in palm oil mill industry. It has the most track record in South East Asia today with the use of biogas with gas engines for power generation.The technology has footprints in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Expanding further as well, Anjur Ekar is embarking into solar hybrid projects for rural development whereby there is no local grid connection available. Energy is a need and critical for day to day living in rural areas.

Effluent Treatment

Install and implement in-ground bio-digester system to treat POME. The bio-digester system has 85 – 90% efficiency in reducing COD concentration. Effluent from the bio-digester system is discharges into the existing ponds.

Renewable Energy

The biogas will be captured, stripped via biological scrubbing system and sent to the boiler to save shells. Electricity generation can also be provided if required via biogas engines generator set from 1 to 2 MW or even more which depends on the mill’s capacity.

Solar Hybrid

Realising the need of power in remote areas whereby there is no nearby national grid to remote villages, Anjur Ekar realised the opportunities in this area specifically in Sabah and Sarawak. Solar power is used to displace 70 percent of the diesel genset usage that is used in villages. A smart system manages the solar power and diesel genset to fulfil the need of electricity by the villages and create diesel savings at the same time.


The technology used for In-Ground Anaerobic Reactor is the most efficient design available for POME, using mixing and recirculation with a relatively long residence time and low loading rate. Operating is very steady with no examples of overloading or having to shut off feed. There is inbuilt gas storage and biological inertia so that production of waste from the mill, conversion of waste to biogas and consumption of biogas in gas engines can all operate independently.

Typical overall conversions vary from 22 tonnes FBB required to generate 1 MWhr down to 16 tonnes FFB in Papua New Guinea.

The nature of the fresh fruit and the mill process configuration create the diffrences. More or less effort can also be given to extracting the best conversion from suspended soilds. Operating power of the anaerobic reactor, scrubber and gas handling including dehumidifier is about 75 kW.

The anaerobic reactor itself can be operated by one person on a shift roster, and the plant may be left unattended at night provided a gas engine operator operates gas handling and respond to power outages etc. Supervision and technical management is required.

Security, lab tests, landscaping and maintenance would normally be included in the work roster of mill staff, and would require additional staff for an independent project.

Site Performance data may be available for specific purposes.


Anjur Ekar carries itself with people within the company as well as having trusted technical partner with vast experience in the South East Asia region. Having experience in palm oil mill operations and biogas to power, Anjur Ekar brings years of experience in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, The Philippines, West Africa and Papua New Guinea.

Our experience ranges from various project deveploment from acquiring biogas projects in SEA, project investment, BOOT and finally EPCC.

The list of projects and track record speaks for itself. Treating POME is one of the hardest effluent.

Anjur Ekar also covers in other area of renewables such as solar hybrid and biomass. There are opportunities in these areas that are potential in the region.


Anjur Ekar will undertake the full design, planning, engineering, construction and commissioning of the biogas plant(s) for the client’s mills.

The project duration is approximately 12 to 14 months for the biogas to be used in a boiler or for power generation. Anjur Ekar will commence with a pre-feasibility study on each plant to collect and analyse data of the mills operations and its effluent management configuration.

The collected data will provide Anjur Ekar the information to devise and design the bio-digesters according to the effluents characteristics and requirements. Based on our formulated models, the In-Ground Anaerobic Digester system will be constructed.

The scope of the project covers :

POME Treatment System

  • Effluent cooling
  • Anaerobic digestion in a newly built In-Ground Anaerobic Digester.
  • Sedimentation pond for sludge recirculation.
  • Treated effluent discharge in the existing system.

Biogas Capture & Use System

  • Biogas capture (flexible cover)
  • Rainwater handling system around bio-digester
  • Biological treatment of the biogas
  • Biogas upgrading (H2S, water removal, temperature control)
  • Biogas compression (blowers)
  • Control room with instrumentation (flow meters, pressure meters, flame detectors, PLC and SCADA)
  • Biogas flaring
  • Biogas energetic use in boiler or with biogas engine(s) for power generation.

Anjur Ekar will assist with the application with DOE and DOSH for the licenses / permit for the construction of the biogas plant.

For operation and maintenance, each plant will have a team of people supplied by the client and can be managed by Anjur Ekar on a periodical basic based on an O&M contract for better supervision. The team shall have approximately 4 – 5 people per plant. Anjur Ekar will provide training and can be in charge of managing and directing the personnel.
