KUALA LUMPUR: Samaiden Group Bhd (SGB) through its wholly-owned subsidiary Samaiden Sdn Bhd (SSB) has bagged a RM25.8 million project from Gimzan Plywood Sdn Bhd (GPSB) to undertake engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) works for a biomass power plant.

The project is in relation to the development of a 2.0 mega-watt, alternating current (MWac) biomass renewable energy power plant located in the Wakaf Tapai Industrial Area, Hulu Terengganu.

SSB’s scope of work includes EPCC works, reliability test, remedy of defect during the defect liability period, and provision of all equipment in connection with the project.

The work which has been scheduled to commence on February 2, 2021, has been targeted for completion within 23 months from the said date.

SGB group managing director Ir Chow Pui Hee said this is the group’s second biomass project since last November.

“We shall continue our commitment to contribute to the environmentally friendly power plants by taking advantage of the initiatives implemented by the (Malaysian) government.

“At SGB, we are determined to rapidly grow our business in the area of renewable energy and to support Malaysia’s commitment to achieve 20 per cent renewable energy usage in its generation mix by 2025,” said Chow.

SGB is principally involved in the EPCC of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and power plants, as well as provision of renewable energy (RE) and environmental consulting services, and operations and maintenance (O&M) services.
