KUALA LUMPUR, Engineering and project management consultant HSS Engineers Bhd (HEB Group), through its subsidiary SMHB Engineering, is participating in recently released tenders for water infrastructure projects in Sabah and Sarawak, boosting its order book exceeding RM500 million as at June 30, 2019.
Among the initiatives is Sarawak’s water grid project to improve water supply services, especially in rural areas, it said in a statement today.
HEB Group executive vice-chairman Tan Sri Ir. Kuna Sittampalam said with the increasing concern over water supply in the country, plans were being implemented by various authorities such as the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources, National Water Services Commission, Pengurusan Aset Air Bhd and various state governments to ensure sustainable and constant supply of water.
Major capital works are being tendered out in Sabah and Sarawak, and we expect other states to follow suit, especially those with water deficits such as Penang, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Selangor, he said.
As a key player in the water industry for more than 55 years, HEB Group, through its unit, SMHB Engineering, is well-positioned to jump on the bandwagon when water infrastructure projects are announced, he said.
He said the group will also be participating in various flood mitigation tenders recently issued by the Department of Irrigation and Drainage.
