Until 2006, only a few people a year were working on different Siemens sites, so this was not a major part of our business. However, the experience and training of the Malaysian personnel was noticed by Siemens site managers and since 2006, the number of requests for YTL personnel for overseas project work has increased dramatically. In 2007, YTLPS started recruiting experienced personnel from around the region for the Siemens power plant commissioning business.

Our engineers and technicians have now worked on three continents on new Siemens power projects in almost 30 countries including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bangladesh, Korea, Egypt, Syria, Nigeria, UAE, New Zealand and Australia.
