Party Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) MP Tian Chua said the Incinerator project in Taman Beringin Kepong has once again surfaced with two major players currently bidding for the project.
“Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), partnering South Korea’s Hyundai Rotem and DRB-Hicom Bhd partnering with Malakoff Corp Bhd and Japan’s Sumitomo Corp.

“While the bidding is in the process the matter at the Tanjung Bin Power Plant in Johor has not been resolved,” he wrote.

He said Malakoff Corp Bhd’s subsidiary Tanjung Bin Power Sdn Bhd is seeking claims totaling RM785mil from Sumitomo Corp, Zelan Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd and Sumi-Power Malaysia Sdn Bhd over the Tanjung Bin Power Plant.

“How will this matter impact DRB–Hicom proposal to run the incinerator and will this lead to problems is the relationship between Sumitomo-Malakoff is completely soured?

“Does the Ministry feel with this matter in line, will the bidders be competent to deliver a project at such large scale?” he asked.

Secondly, he said, the surfacing of the Kepong incinerator project has gotten many residents around Taman Beringin nervous as they feel the project being built near their homes may be citing for environmental and health risks.

The 1000 ton incinerator project is planned merely about three to four kilometers from their homes, which may result in thick black smoke polluting their air and worst still the release of a bad stench.

“The Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry needs to once again assess the engagement of this incinerator project over the proposed bidding companies and the location of the project.

“These areas especially Taman Beringin is highly populated and this project may result from discomfort in living surroundings for many,” he said.Follow us on Social Media
