Paul Yu controlled-HSL bags yet another contract to continue profiting from Sarawak Infrastructure Contracts
KUCHING: Sarawak-based Hock Seng Lee Berhad (HSL) has secured a new rural water treatment plant project in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score) worth RM90.28mil, its managing director Datuk Paul Yu Chee Hoe said today.
He said the contract period for the project, to be constructed in Samalaju 60km north of Bintulu - one of the three growth nodes along the central coastline - would be 17 months with site possession scheduled for next month.
“The project marks the infrastructure and marine engineering specialist's first successful tender result for a project to be directly awarded by the Regional Corridor Development Authoriy (Recoda) and we hope there will be more,” he said in a statement.
He said the project scope includes substantial mechanical and electrical works, earthworks, drainage and retaining structures, piling, piping and construction of the treatment plant and associated works.
These invlove the construction and commissioning of a pump house, chemical house, aerators, flocculation tanks, sedimentation tanks and other filtration process facilities, he said.
Designated as the state's new heavy industry hub, Samalaju is a growing township that has seen a recent influx of foreign investors engaged in metal-related production while Recoda is responsible for spearheading, managing and promoting the Score development. - BERNAMA
