PETALING JAYA: Mattan Engineering Sdn Bhd has been appointed the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contractor by Solar Management Sdn Bhd under a contract worth RM285 million.
The contract was a beneficiary of the granting of financial close by Malaysia Building Society Bhd (MBSB) to Solar Management for the large-scale solar 50MWac photovoltaic generation facility.
Mattan, an EPCC solutions provider for renewable energy (RE) infrastructure, will undertake the designing, construction and operation works of the facility located in Rembau, Negri Sembilan, which is scheduled for completion by Nov 30, 2018.
“We are very happy and proud to be appointed as the turnkey EPCC contractor by Solar Management. This contract win is a ringing endorsement of our expertise and capability in the RE infrastructure space in Malaysia.
“To date, Mattan has a combined total of 69MW of RE projects completed, including this 50MWac solar farm which is one of the largest solar farms in the country,” Mattan executive chairman Levin Tan said in a statement today.
He said the group has a proven track record in providing technical assistance, licensing, engineering, procurement, supply, construction management, construction, commissioning, start-up and testing services and in possessing the requisite expertise and resources to undertake multi-disciplinary RE projects, and to complete this contract undertaking.
“Going forward, there are a few more opportunities in the pipeline that we are working hard on and we hope to deliver more good news in the near future,” he added.
Following the contract win, Mattan has in turn appointed China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) as the procurement arm to supply the material and equipment for the 50MWac solar farm project.
CMEC will undertake the necessary package arrangements for the procurement and international transportation of the material and equipment including mounting structures and solar panels.
