KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 2019 : Petronas Gas Bhd (PGB) recently entered into two separate sales and purchase agreements with Polyplastics Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd (PAP), each for a 22-year duration.
The first agreement is for the supply of steam to PAP, which is a new business secured from the Japan-owned company, while the second one is for the extension of the existing electricity supply by PGB.
Managing director/chief executive officer Kamal Bahrin Ahmad said the contract extension is a testimony of customers’ confidence in PGB to provide a reliable supply of power at a competitive tariff from PGB’s co-generation (COGEN) plant in Gebeng.
“It is also PGB’s aspiration to be a preferred total solutions provider, as reflected by its long-term business relationship with PAP and the other customers based at the Gebeng Industrial Park in Kuantan, Pahang,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Established in 1997, PAP is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Polyplastics Ltd Company, Japan, and is in the business of engineering plastics. It is a multinational company devoted to creating a culture of innovation and new value.
“PAP is proud to enter into a long-term agreement with the infrastructure owners PGB, which signifies a new phase in our journey towards serving our customers,” PAP managing director Yoshimitsu Shirai said.
Both the electricity and steam are generated by PGB’s 350MW highly efficient COGEN facility, which has been the main driver since 1999, in providing total utilities solutions and offering competitive power and steam tariff to its customers.
Other than Gebeng, PGB also operates similar facilities in Kerteh to serve the Kerteh Integrated Petrochemical Complex. – Bernama
