HEB Group granted an extension for the upgrade of Kubang Pasu water treatment plant

ENGINEERING and project management consultant HSS Engineers Bhd (HEB Group) announced that its associate SMHB Sdn Bhd (SMHB) had obtained an extended appointment by the Kedah state government through Syarikat Air Darul Aman Sdn Bhd (SADA) for the upgrading of water treatment plant at Kubang Pasu, Kedah. 

Initially, SMHB had entered into a Principal Agreement with SADA to provide design services for the project from Dec 1, 2016 to Jan 1, 2022, with a contract value of RM16 mil. 

However on Jan 11, 2022 SMHB received the Supplemental Agreement which stretched out SMHB’s arrangement to incorporate the development phase of the task from Jan 2, 2022 to Aug 28, 2025, with a revised contract worth RM22.7 mil. 

Moreover, the revised contract is expected to contribute positively to the HEB Group from financial years ending Dec 31, 2022 to Dec 31, 2025. 

“SMHB’s continued appointment with an extended scope of services is a very clear message of Kedah’s commitment to enhance their water sector infrastructure, and their affirmation of our capabilities thus far,” said HSS Engineers Bhd executive vice chairman Tan Sri Ir. Kuna Sittampalam. 

“I am very elated that HEB Group is beginning the new year by reinforcing our leadership in providing engineering consultancy services for critical areas of water, rail and road transport sectors, on top of also entering into new areas of growth such as telecommunications.  

We believe that this would set the tone for our growth path going forward,” he added.  

According to the exclusive teaming agreement between SMHB and SMHB Engineering Sdn Bhd (SMHBE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of HEB, SMHB and SMHBE will work together solely to execute and complete the contract. 

Furthermore, HEB Group effectively expanded into the broadcast communications area, as its unit HSS Integrated Sdn Bhd acknowledged two Framework Services Agreements from Digital Nasional Berhad to give consultancy administrations to the public execution of Malaysia’s 5G foundation and organisation on Jan 10, 2022. 

Preceding that, SMHB had acknowledged a letter of appointment on Jan 3, 2022 to be the consulting engineer for the updating task of the Sungai Marang span in Marang, Terengganu for an agreement amount of RM15.1 mil. – Jan 13, 2022
