THE government plans to review renewable energy tariff rates from the current 21 sen per kilowatt hour, said Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui.

He said the government will ensure the rates are justified.

"It will consider whether the price is practical for the whole country, fair to Tenaga Nasional to buy and what can the government contribute in terms of tax.

"We will study on implementing a new tariff that will encourage companies to participate in this sector," he said after visiting Recycle Energy Sdn Bhd plant in Semenyih, Selangor, yesterday.

Recycle Energy Sdn Bhd is a subsidiary of MMC Bhd that began pioneering the use of green technology to generate energy from its resource recovery centre and waste to energy plant.

He said this will help government's effort to promote renewable energy as one of the energy resources in the country in view of the high cost of renewable technology.

"By 2015, we hope to generate 6 per cent or 1,000 mega watts of renewable energy from only 0.91 per cent or 14.5 mega watt currently," he said, adding that the government will look into this matter seriously as the development of the sector is in line with its policy on Green Technology.

Chin also said that the government will review electricity tariff by year-end.

He said the rates will be reviewed every six months to ensure the tariff is in line with the price of gas and coal in the international market.

"When I say review it does not mean the price will increase, it may be maintained or reduced," he said, adding that the current fuel price movements will be monitored.

On nuclear energy, Chin said the draft of the policy and guidelines to include nuclear energy as an option for power supply is expected to be ready early next year.

On another matter, Chin said there will be one or two more meetings to resolve the Selangor water concession issue before it could be finalised.

"Last week, they (Puncak Niaga Holdings Bhd and Selangor Government) had a meeting but did not conclude anything. Overall, I'm happy that Selangor is willing to work closely with the federal government for the benefit of the people," he added. - Bernama
Enam peratus tenaga diperbaharui 2015
8 September 2009 / 18 Ramadan 1430



Khalid Bahsoon (kiri) menjelaskan mengenai pengurusan sisa pepejal di loji
Recycle Energy Sdn. Bhd. kepada Peter Chin Fah Kui di Semenyih, semalam.


SEMENYIH 7 Sept. - Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air (KeTTHA) menyasarkan sekurang-kurangnya enam peratus daripada tenaga elektrik yang dijana akan diperoleh melalui tenaga diperbaharui menjelang 2015.

Pada waktu itu, penjanaan tenaga elektrik terkumpul yang disasarkan adalah sebanyak 1,000 megawatt (MW).

Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui berkata, setakat ini, hanya sebuah loji penjanaan tenaga diperbaharui yang diusahakan oleh syarikat pengurusan sisa pepejal, Recycle Energy Sdn. Bhd. (RESB) berupaya menjana tenaga elektrik di negara ini.

Menurutnya, RESB juga merupakan satu-satunya syarikat kitar semula sisa pepejal dalam negara yang mempunyai proses penjanaan tenaga tersebut.

Beliau memberitahu, loji berkenaan hanya mampu menghasilkan 8 MW elektrik sejam dan ia boleh ditingkatkan pada masa akan datang bagi memenuhi keperluan tenaga elektrik dalam negara.

''Ia merupakan permulaan yang baik yang dimulakan oleh syarikat swasta sebagai salah satu penyelesaian kepada kekurangan sumber tenaga di negara ini.

''Setakat ini, sumber-sumber tenaga biomass yang menjana tenaga elektrik termasuk kelapa sawit menyumbang sebanyak 40.5 MW kepada tenaga elektrik negara,'' katanya selepas mengadakan lawatan kilang RESB di sini hari ini.

Hadir sama ialah Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif RESB, Khalid Bahsoon.

Kos pembinaan loji tenaga diperbaharui berkenaan adalah kira-kira RM190 juta manakala kos operasinya pula sebanyak RM2 juta sebulan.

Bermula Ogos lalu, syarikat melalui Perjanjian Pembelian Tenaga Diperbaharui dengan Tenaga Nasional Bhd. (TNB) akan membekalkan tenaga elektrik sebanyak 5 MW sejam kepada TNB.

Sekarang, RESB mampu menjana tenaga elektrik 8 MW sejam daripada 700 tan sisa pepejal perbandaran (MSW) sehari.

Sebanyak 3 MW daripada 8 MW digunakan untuk kegunaan operasi dalaman syarikat.

Sumber sisa pepejal tersebut diperoleh daripada Majlis Perbandaran Kajang (MPKj) dan seluruh penduduk sekitar seperti Semenyih dan beberapa tempat lain.

Dalam perkembangan lain, ketika ditanya mengenai Bajet 2010 yang akan dibentangkan, Fah Kui berkata, pihaknya sudah menghantar cadangan kementerian itu kepada Kementerian Kewangan.

Katanya, pihaknya berharap Kementerian Kewangan dapat menimbangkan keperluan KeTTHA dengan sebaiknya.

''Kami memerlukan bantuan, galakkan, modal dan pelbagai kaedah yang boleh digunakan untuk membangunkan kementerian,'' ujarnya.

Mengenai tarif elektrik yang akan dinilai akhir tahun ini, beliau berkata, penilaian berkenaan bukan bererti ia melibatkan kenaikan tarif semata-mata, sebaliknya tarif tersebut mungkin dikekalkan atau pun dikurangkan.

TNB in wind-powered IPP deal with Argentine firm
By Zaidi Isham Ism ail Published: 2009/10/05

TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) (5347) and Argentina's giant energy firm Impsa have forged an alliance here to create an independent power producer (IPP) run by wind generated turbines.

Impsa, which has a workforce of over 7,000 people worldwide, is currently in the process of building the world's largest wind turbine farm in Argentina.

An official from the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry said the new IPP is formed to reduce TNB's high dependency on depleting fossil fuels as well as cut cost in capacity payments to the country's more than 20 IPPs.

The official said both TNB and Impsa have signed a memorandum of understanding two to three weeks ago to see the viability of the project for the next one year.
"Both parties have to see first whether Malaysia has enough wind to turn the fan blades of the wind turbines at selected locations with maximum wind tower height of 100m.

"Should there be enough wind, then the government after a year from now may consider taking up wind-powered electricity generation as one of the many sources of renewable energy, which include solar, biomass and hydro," the source told Business Times.

Meanwhile, an official from Impsa said the IPP will be a 50:50 joint venture and should the project take off, both parties will cooperate to build several wind farms at selected locations across the country and the power generated will be connected to the National Grid.

He said the wind farm must be in windy areas with minimum wind speed of 7m per second and areas include Mersing in Johor, Kuala Terengganu in Terengganu, Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Pulau Langkawi and all along the Malaysia-Thailand border.

Except for the areas above, Malaysia has an average wind speed of two metres per second compared to Vietnam which has a wind speed of 16m per second.

Early this week, Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui said the ministry is conducting several trials at several windy areas in Malaysia to study the viability of the energy source before making a decision.

Impsa's chief operating officer Lucas Pescarmona said it cost between US$1.8 million (RM6.25 million) and US$2.5 million (RM8.68 million) to generate between 1 megawatt (MW) and 2.5 MW of wind power.

TNB currently pays IPPs at an average rate of 25 sen per kilowatt/hour compared to its cost of 17 sen per kilowatt/hour.

TNB connection for hilly areas next year
Friday October 9, 2009

RESIDENTS of Bukit Batu Hitam, Bukit Pulau Betong and Bukit Cengkih in Balik Pulau, Penang, will soon have power supply connected to their homes.

Pulau Betong assemblyman Muhamad Farid Saad said resi-dents on these hilly areas had been getting electricity from their own generators for about 60 years.

“The residents and I have applied for electricity supply from the Federal Government and the application has been approved.

“Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) will start surveying the area im-mediately,” he said before visiting some of the houses on Wednes-day.

Muhamad Farid expected the power supply to be connected by next year.

“The project will cost RM1,809,433. I hope the residents can have electrical supply by National Day next year,” he said.

He said 47 houses were involved with 28 in Bukit Batu Hitam, 13 in Bukit Pulau Betong and six in Bukit Cengkih.

Muhamad Farid said that once the project was completed, the whole of Balik Pulau would have electrical supply.

A Tenaga officer said the project involved the building of transformers and substations.

Goh Beng Hock, 47, from Bukit Batu Hitam, said his family moved to the area in the 1970s.

“We don’t use the generator during the day as it’s bright enough but we switch on the generator for a few hours at night.

“My family also doesn’t use a fridge because the generator is small and its power supply is sufficient only for about 10 light bulbs or fluorescent lights.

“Even our television is just a 16-inch one,” the wireman said.

Goh said his family spent about RM100 monthly on petrol for the generator.

Canteen operator Chin Seak Min, 46, said the first thing his family would buy when they receive electricity supply from Tenaga was a refrigerator.

PROJECT TO OVERCOME ELECTRICITY SHORTAGE OPERATIONAL BY 2010
9th October, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: The problem of Sabah’s electricity supply shortage will be overcome when the Powertron 2 electricity generation project becomes operational from January next year, the president and chief executive officer of Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB), Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said yesterday.

He said the project, due for completion in June last year, was delayed by more than 12 months due to a court injunction by a land owner.

“If the project had been completed in June as scheduled, I feel the problem of the power supply shortage in Sabah would have been overcome. But the project was delayed.

“It will now, only be ready in January next year, with an operational capacity of 65 megawatts and be fully completed by October,” he said during the Program Dialog over TV1 on Wednesday night.

The Powertron 2 project by Ranhill at Kota Kinabalu can generate 190 megawatts of electricity.

Che Khalib made the remarks while explaining TNB’s action to overcome the electricity supply shortage in Sabah.

He also said the government viewed the problem seriously and had decided that a taskforce be formed to overcome the electricity supply shortage.

“We had indicated to the government that a taskforce was needed to overcome the problem as soon as possible.We therefore feel that the taskforce, which will meet in three months time, will be able to help resolve the problem,” he added.

The taskforce will comprise TNB, the Sabah Electric Sdn Bhd (SESB) as well as ministries such as the Ministry of Energy, Green technology and Water, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Rural Regional Development.

He said for the moment, the government will constantly review developments in Sabah and discuss it at the Cabinet meetings every month.

For the short term, TNB has ordered 60 units of mobile generators which can generate one megawatt of electricity. Twenty sets will be placed on Sabah’s west coast.

“A total of 40 units will be located to Sabah’s east coast, with 20 each in Tawau and Sandakan,” he said.

TNB Plans To Build Two Dams In Terengganu And Pahang
October 11, 2009 19:07 PM

KUALA TERENGGANU, Oct 11 (Bernama) -- Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is planning to build two new hydro-electric dams, namely in Hulu Terengganu and Hulu Jelai in Pahang.

Its vice-president (Human Resources), Muhammad Razif Abdul Rahman, said the proposed dam in Hulu Terengganu would be built in Sungai Tembat and Sungai Puah with a 250-megawatt (MW) capacity, while the one in Hulu Jelai would be built with a capacity of 372 MW.

While saying that it was too early to announce the estimated cost and width of the dams, Muhammad Razif, however, said that the projects would begin soon.

"Both dams will be built simultaneously and are expected to be ready by 2014," he told reporters at the Terengganu-level TNB Aidilfitri celebration, here Sunday.

He said, once completed, the dam in Hulu Terengganu would be the third in the state, after that of the Sultan Ismail Power Station in Paka and the Sultan Mahmud Power Station in Tasik Kenyir.

"The demand for power supply is not so high in Terengganu, probably just around 300 MW. We already have a power station in Paka, which has the capacity to generate 1,200 MW electricity, and another one in Tasik Kenyir with a capacity of 400 MW.

"We are connecting the two power stations to the national grid to ensure continuous supply of electricity nationwide," he said.

Muhammad Razif said the TNB had received the approval from the Terengganu Forestry Department to start the forest clearing work.

He also reiterated that the construction of the dams was vital to achieve the government's aspiration to diversify the sources of energy in the country.

State Govt wants TNB briefing on coal-fired plant
Published on: Saturday, October 10, 2009

Kota Kinabalu: The State Government hopes to have a meeting with Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) soon to discuss the proposed coal-fired power plant in Felda Sahabat, Lahad Datu.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan said the meeting was important as the State Government needs to be briefed on the TNB's effort, especially with the critical power supply situation in the East Coast.

"We are now in a dilemma, more so that the East Coast needs at least 300 megawatt of electricity," said Pairin who is also Infrastructure Development Minister.

He hoped TNB and his Ministry would be able to meet soon so that more details could be obtained on the proposed construction of the coal-fired power plant at Dent Peninsula.

Met at the Hari Raya Open House hosted by his Ministry in Sembulan near here, Friday, Pairin said the coal-fired power plant had been listed as among the alternatives by the Government in order to boost power supply capacity in the State.

He said the earlier proposals to build the coal-fired power plant in Silam, Lahad Datu and then in Sungai Seguntor, Sandakan had received objections from the public and NGOs due to environmental concern.

According to him, such kind of developments would always face challenges and due to the objections the project was again moved to Felda Sahabat area in Lahad Datu as announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said shifting the project to Felda Sahabat was probably due to the size of the area, which makes it easier to monitor.

Nonetheless, Pairin said it was also imperative for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report to be fully complied.

Although there are still no details on how big is the area to be used up for the project, he said it must be able to accommodate a 300MW power plant.

He added that the Chief Minister had also stated that the completion of the power station in Kimanis would help stabilise power supply in the State.

"Our state is developing rapidly and coupled with the increasing population, we need to have more power," he said, adding that in the East Coast context, a stable power supply was needed due to the anticipated growth, particularly with the development of the Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC) there.

"So everything has to be taken into consideration," he said.

Meanwhile, Public Works Department (PWD) Director, John Anthony, said a total of RM600 million is needed to repair about 400 damages caused by landslides in Sabah.

So far, under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP), the PWD managed to repair between 38 to 40 damages and the rest of the fund would be sought in the 10MP.

TNB: Give incentives torenewable energy firms
By Zaidi Isham Ismail
Published: 2009/10/13

TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) (5347)hopes the government under Budget 2010 will offer incentives to renewable energy companies to attract more investments and grow the industry.

TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad said renewable energy firms should be given incentives to ensure the power sector's long-term sustainability.

"Renewable energy can be the next power of the future and the world's power industry, including TNB, cannot forever rely on depleting fossil fuels.

"Fuel prices are also unpredictable, going up to over US$60 (RM205) per barrel from US$40 (RM136).
"Renewable energy is more sustainable," Che Khalib told reporters at the company's headquarters in Kuala Lumpur yesterday after its Hari Raya open house.

A TNB official said renewable energy projects are expensive and companies take a long time to recoup their investments.

"Financing is also difficult to get as banks are reluctant to give out loans to a relatively new industry," the official said.

So far, industry regulator the Energy Commission has issued 31 licenses to renewable energy projects, of which seven have signed their respective agreements with TNB.

Renewable energy includes electricity derived from solar, hydro and biomass, among others. TNB will sign long-term deals to buy power from companies willing to invest in these plants.

On the power tariff review which is due by December, Che Khalib said as usual the matter will be decided by the government.

"The government must start reviewing the cost structure and gradually do away with subsidies because there will come a time when the government can no longer afford the subsidies.

"The government must allow tariff to be reviewed accordingly with international gas prices because the subsidy amount is too big."

Che Khalib, however, said any changes in tariff rates and subsidies must be carried out gradually and over a period of time so that the public will not be burdened.

TNB’s joint venture operational by 2015
Saturday October 24, 2009
By LEE KIAN SEONG

KUALA LUMPUR: The Sumatera-Peninsular Electrical Power Interconnection Project, which is jointly developed by Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) and PT PLN (Persero) of Indonesia, is scheduled to be operational by 2015.

The electrical interconnection project, which will have a capacity of 600 megawatts, will comprise 200km of 250kV overhead High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) double circuit and two 57km of 250kV HVDC submarine cables.

PLN is the state body responsible for all matters related to electricity supply in Indonesia.

TNB chairman Tan Sri Leo Moggie said the project was a step towards further enhancing the close relationship between the two countries’ power utilities.

“It is also an avenue that will bring us closer towards realising the aspiration of developing a fully integrated Asean Interconnected Transmission Grid, or the so-called ‘power highway’, among the Asean countries,” he said at the heads of agreement signing ceremony between TNB and PLN yesterday.

He said the technical and commercial studies jointly carried out by TNB and PLN confirmed the technical feasibility and economic viability of the project and the benefits it would bring to both countries.

“Major benefits of this interconnection project include the reduction in joint production and operating costs and the sharing of spinning (power) reserves and mitigation of demand-supply imbalance,” Moggie said.

He said the agreement, the penultimate step before an actual implementation contract, would focus and finalise the details of implementation through three main working groups.

“The working groups are expected to come up with their recommendations within six months of signing this agreement,” he said.

Meanwhile, Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui said the ministry viewed the interconnection project as one of the positive moves towards managing those issues through sharing of resources and expertise.

“Globally, matters related to energy and environment are becoming more prominent and have taken centrestage,” he said.

Chin said the issues being debated included an increase in fossil fuel prices and its depleting resources, environmental pollution, global warming, energy security and sustainability.

TNB says power demand to grow in 2010
Published: 2009/10/26



KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 26 — Malaysia’s biggest power producer Tenaga Nasional said it expected power usage to grow as it reported a return to net profit in the fourth quarter of a year that gave the company a huge loss.

State-owned Tenaga, which has a market value of US$11 billion (RM billion), posted a net profit of RM64.3 million for June to August period, compared with a loss of RM282.9 million a year ago.

However, full-year net profit fell 65 percent year-on-year to RM917.9 million, which was far below the RM2.2 billion estimate of 18 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Tenaga said its profit was mostly hit by forex translation losses of 1.2 billion ringgit for the year due to a weaker Malaysian currency against the U.S. dollar and Japanese yen.

“We have had to manage the combination of negative electricity demand growth, higher average coal prices, additional capacity payments and forex exposure,” Tenaga Chairman Leo Moggie said.

The company said that while electricity contracted 2.6 per cent for the full year, it grew 0.6 per cent in the fourth quarter and would continue to expand.

“Demand for electricity will be positive in 2010 in the region of 3 per cent,” said Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, Tenaga’s chief executive officer.

Che Khalib said the Bakun hydroelectric dam, in Sarawak, Borneo, was expected to be operational by 2011, at the latest.

Tenaga is part of a Malaysian consortium building a submarine transmission line for the 2,400-megawatt dam.

Tenaga shares closed up 0.2 percent at RM8.48 today, and have gained 35 per cent this year, lagging the broader market’s 44 per cent rise. — Reuters

TNB Remaco confident of RM400m revenue
By Kamarul Yunus Published: 2009/10/29



TNB Repair and Maintenance Sdn Bhd (TNB Remaco), a unit of Tenaga Nasional Bhd, expects to chalk up revenue of up to RM400 million for its current financial year ending August 31 2010.

Tenaga Nasional president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said he is confident of achieving the target, as Remaco has been able to raise its revenue significantly since the company started its repair centre in Klang, Selangor, some three years ago.

"When we started (the repair centre) about three or four years ago, Remaco was doing RM60 million in revenue. For the (2008/2009) financial year just ended, the figure tripled to RM200 million. This financial year, we are targeting a revenue of between RM300 million and RM400 million," he told reporters after the signing of maintenance service agreement between three companies, namely TNB Remaco, Petronas Gas Bhd (PGB) and GE Energy in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

In its aspiration to become a regional repair hub, Che Khalib said TNB Remaco has started exploring the repair and maintenance services markets in Indonesia and Brunei.

He said the company has secured contracts to service power plants in Myanmar and Saudi Arabia.

"Recently, we secured a deal for operation and maintenance of two power plants in Pakistan for over a five-year period. The deal is valued at US$126 million (RM430 million)," he said.

Che Khalib said the company is also looking for opportunities from the local market, namely in the oil and gas sector as well as the independent power producers.

On the maintenance service agreement with PGB, Che Khalid said TNB Remaco and its technical partner, GE Energy will provide a long-term maintenance services to PGB's centralised utility facilities at Kerteh in Terengganu and Gebeng in Pahang.

Under this service agreement, he said TNB Remaco will provide new and refurbished gas turbine parts and supply manpower to perform planned and unplanned inspections to the Frame6 gas turbines at both facilities.

TNB training personnel in nuclear technology
Published: 2009/11/10

TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) is training its personnel in nuclear technology by sending them to do masters and doctor of philosophy degrees to build its capacity in the technology.

“We are training our people. We are sending them to do Masters and PhDs in South Korea, Japan and the US,” said president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh.

He said the three countries have different sets of nuclear technology programmes.

“The first phase is to have capacity-building by training our people,” he told reporters at TNB's Deepavali open house in Kuala Lumpur today.

TNB, Che khalib said, had also signed a 12-month collaboration agreement with its South Korean counterpart, Korea Electric Power Corp (KEPCO), to learn more about nuclear energy.

“South Korea is exposing our people to nuclear technology,” he said.

Che Khalib said TNB will support the government’s initiatives in exploring the country's prospect of entering into nuclear technology ventures.

“I think the government has said many times it will look into nuclear energy when all other resources have been exhausted.

" So, I think we are on the right direction,” he added.

Tenaga gets court nod to upgrade cables in Rawang
Written by Bernama Friday, 20 November 2009 16:48

PUTRAJAYA: TENAGA NASIONAL BHD [] has received the go-ahead from the the court to upgrade the high-voltage cables of a 275kV transmission line in Rawang, which is crucial to increase the power supply to the Klang Valley.

The Federal Court today allowed Tenaga's appeal to lift an injunction obtained by 23 villagers in Kampung Sungai Terentang, Rawang, to halt work on the transmission line running through their village.

Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Tan Sri Richard Malanjum and Federal Court judge Datuk Seri S Augustine Paul allowed Tenaga's appeal in a two-to-one majority decision, with Datuk James Foong dissenting.

Paul, in his judgment, said Tenaga had the right to upgrade the 33kV transmission line to 275 kV under Section 13 of the Electricity Supply Act 1990 to increase the power supply.

He said Tenaga's upgrading was clearly an improvement by the replacement of components and upgrading the electricity cables. — Bernama

Bida projek Arab Saudi RM6.7b
Oleh AINUL ASNIERA AHSAN 30 November 2009
http://www.utusan.com.my/utusan/info...t&pg=ko_01.htm

KUALA LUMPUR 29 Nov. – Syarikat utiliti negara, Tenaga Nasional Bhd. (TNB), merancang membida sebuah lagi projek pembinaan loji jana kuasa di Arab Saudi bernilai RM6.7 bilion.

Ketua Eksekutifnya, Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh yang enggan mengulas lanjut berkata, bidaan yang akan dibuat melalui sebuah konsortium baru, bakal dikemukakan bulan depan dan keputusannya dijangka diketahui pada Mac tahun depan.

Sekiranya berjaya, ia akan menjadi projek kedua TNB di Arab Saudi selepas projek pertama bernilai AS$2.8 bilion (RM10 bilion) yang disertainya melalui konsortium Saudi-Malaysia Water and Electricity Company Ltd (Samawec).

Beliau berkata, biarpun TNB berjaya memulihkan projek loji jana kuasa di Pakistan sehingga menjadikannya salah sebuah yang paling berdaya maju, syarikat utiliti tempatan itu tidak merancang melabur lagi di negara berkenaan.

KUALA LUMPUR: TENAGA NASIONAL BHD [] is in the midst of finalising the three tenders it received for the second phase of the CONSTRUCTION [] of the Ulu Terengganu hydropower plant and is expected to award the contract by February next year.

"For the civil works, we are evaluating the tender. We have received three tenders. We are evaluating the tenders and hopefully we can make that decision by January or February," said president and chief executive officer Datuk Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh.

He said the three parties that submitted their bids were Loh & Loh Corp Bhd with Sinohydro Corp, Italian company Salini Construction as well as GAMUDA BHD [] together with a Chinese company.
