I just did my part for Nilai, Negeri Sembilan. (Yeah, I am in the middle f the jungle, I need it very badly 😀 ).
Jimah Energy Ventures Sdn Bhd (JEV) today is one of the leading private energy companies in Malaysia. This company has set up a new Independent Power Producer (IPP) at Mukim Jimah, district of Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus.Jimah development, own and also operates the coal-fired energy. The Project consists of the construction and commissioning of two coal-fired generating units with the net capacity of 700 MW each, based on proven sub-critical technology. The Project includes ancillary infrastructure such as a coal handling system, coal yard, ash pond and dedicated coal jetty.
On 12th November, Electrical and Electronics Engineering students along with Mechanical Engineering students of Nilai University were given an opportunity to visit the JEV to get an industrial view.
The visit was to show the excellent performance and the continuous improvement of JEV. All the students were gathered at the Administration Block in Nilai University from where we were taken from the bus to the JEV Power Plant located in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus. The journey was more than 1 hour through the beautiful landscape of Negeri Sembilan.
The day started with the company welcoming us and showing the map of the company. Then we were taken to the conference room to be given a briefing on the company by Miss Siti Aisha who was the engineer at JEV. During the briefing, the company showed us how the company came into being, since 2003 until today. Later, the engineers were shown a presentation about the production of the energy. The speaker discussed and explained the details about the countries they import coal from, processing of coal and production of coal-fired.
With the aid of different pictures, we were given easier look of the whole system.
Before we could go any further, we digested all the information about JEV. After which they served us the delicious refreshments to all the students so could get fresh for the visit to the entire production and supply unit. They took all the students on the bus tour to the company showing all the units. As a memory, they showed us the first batch of coal they received in their timeline.
Here are some pictures of the company that we were able to get.
While most of the university life is spent in studies, quizzes, and exams, Nilai University has started this Industrial trip project to give the students an idea about how the professional life would be. It’s tough to decide what career to choose. But giving the exposure of Industrial visit, will help in deciding what a student really wants.
Personally, I, as an Electrical and Electronics Engineer was always interested in the pursuing my career in power Electronics. Therefore, visiting the place like Jimah Ventures, was like a heaven to me. I was given a great exposure to the industrial and professional life. I met a number of engineers and learned a lot from them.
Waiting for another trip next semester… 😛 Till next time… Happy Reading… 🙂
For all the “Mummy’s Baby Boys” and “Daddy’s Lil Girls” who have lived in the hostel, have learned to be not only independent but trustworthy and hardworking. The most important thing is that they have realised the value of life and the loved ones. Life in a hostel is not a simple one, but it is full of stress >.< and challenges. However, how much difficult the hostel life is, it teaches you to be prepared for the real outside world in a way that people who live with parents don’t.
Living in the hostel for 4 years, I have learned a lot of numerous things that people living at home will never learn. Here are the things that I and my friends are spending hostel life have done to make life easier.
1- They know all the possible ways to save their money.
They know that they will get scolded by their parents if they inform them they have spent the weekly pocket money in one day. 😀 So they have to plan well and save before spending on leisure activities. With the detailed budgeting of every week’s grocery, they can easily start a house budgeting business, marriage budgeting business or any budgeting business.
2- They Understand the value of petrol. Carpooling is their best friend.
If they want to go from one place to another in a 7 seater car, they make sure they are 7. The more the people, the lesser the share of petrol price. 😉
3- Hacks and they are made-for-each-other.
If there is a shortcut, trust me, they are the first people to try. Whether it’s about studies, food or and normal routine thing. They will try!! And sometimes, invent shortcuts too 😛
4- They know the actual significance of 2 minutes Maggie or sausages at 2 in the morning.
5- They can bear even the “king of Slowest Wifi”.
Spending 4 years with dead slow internet access, they are ready to bear even the Snail-walking-slow internet too! They are the governors of “Patience-Ville”.
6- They have nicknames for all the people around the campus.
There is a “slow talker”, a “red bag girl”, “Mr Bean lecturer”, “Screaming lady” etc. And, to be honest, most of the nicknames are made-up based on the silent judgement of their nature and behaviour. And yeah, the people that our close friends hate are nicknamed their “bestfriends”. 😀
7- Making friends is the easiest job for them.
Being around all the sad and sorrow souls who are away from the families, they know the value of friendship! They make sure that they not only share the happy moments but also the sad ones. They become family to each other and are always loyal to them. Well, except when they prank each other. 😛
8- They make their rooms more beautiful than the houses.
They know how to fit a million things into the tiny room. And that too, beautifully. From a dining table to a small beautiful kitchen with every utensil, ranging from a rice cooker, oven, heater, to mini fridge in the far corner. They have everything in the room decorated nicely. They can make one tiny room into their living room, bedroom, kitchen and study. With all that talent, they should think about becoming interior decorators. 😛
9- They know how to make the best of everything.
Don’t have a mirror? Don’t worry! They will use a spoon to see your reflection. Laptop camera as mirrors or wooden chopstick as a frying spoon, they know how to use them for various purposes.
10- They are an expert in time management.
Managing time between university (8am-5pm), cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner, cleaning the room, washing the dishes, washing the clothes (with hands specially), Skyping with family, talking with friends, and organising events-Trust me, they are the living supermen and superwomen!
11- They celebrate even the smallest happiness together.
12- They are prepared to face even the very bad world outside!!!
Difficult or Easy, living in a hostel is one of the most beautiful parts of a life.
Hats off to all the student who are, or who were living in the hostels. 🙂
