BMT Asia Pacific (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, has been awarded a contract by a Consortium led by HSL Constructor Sdn Bhd, and including Tecgates Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd and Gema Antara Sdn Bhd. BMT will provide detailed engineering design and risk management consultancy services for a new coal unloading jetty and associated bulk handling system at the Tanjung Bin Energy (TBE) Power Plant in Johor, Malaysia.
Peter Ho, International Business Director from HSL Constructor comments: “BMT has a strong presence in Malaysia and is well respected for its technical capabilities and expertise having worked on several other local projects and as such, was a natural partner for this project. We are confident that the team will help us to deliver a robust design that aligns with the needs of the end customer.”
The TBE Power Plant, also known as T4, is a super-critical coal-fired power plant developed by Tanjung Bin Energy Sdn Bhd, a part of Malakoff Corporation Bhd, providing the most efficient coal combustion technology currently on the market. Located adjacent to Malakoff’s existing 2,100MW coal-fired Tanjung Bin Power Plant, T4 commenced operations in March 2016.
BMT will work closely with the Consortium to deliver detailed engineering design and risk management solutions, and be responsible for the necessary professional endorsements required for approval by the associated local authorities. BMT’s team of experts will also provide construction support and upon completion, will liaise with the local authorities to secure the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) which will in turn, allow the owner to operate the facility.
“Being a brownfield site, this project will require us to overcome a number of complex interfacing challenges. Strong partnership with the Consortium is critical – leveraging our strong history of working in this area, we will collaborate with the partners to develop a design that fully supports a construction methodology that in no way impacts on current operations at the plant.” comments BMT’s Director of Maritime Engineering, Sridhar Krishnan.
Sridhar further comments: “We have contributed to the urban and industrial development of Malaysia for over 30 years, in particular its ports, energy and transport sectors. This project win follows on from our most recent work supporting several projects, including the construction of the 2 x 1000MW Jimah East Coal-Fired Power Plant (Project 3B).”
