KUALA LUMPUR, July 5 (Reuters) - Malaysia's national power producer Tenaga Nasional will sell as much as 5 billion ringgit ($1.7 billion) in 20-year Islamic bonds, chief executive Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said.

The company will issue the sukuk in August or September with the proceeds used to finance a coal-fired power plant in Janamanjung in the northern state of Perak.

The bonds will be structured according to the ijara or Islamic leasing contract.
