MMHE Secures RM527mil Worth of Contracts

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Bhd (MMHE) has secured a contract for offshore structure fabrication works in the Kumang Cluster gas field in Sarawak, as well as several works packages for the Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (Rapid) project totalling RM527mil.

The first contract was awarded by Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd to Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of MMHE.

The group said in a statement that the first contract entailed the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the wellhead platform topside and jacket, the telecommunications and instrumentation system tie-ins of the new F12 platform as well as existing platforms.

The F12 facilities are located in the Kumang Cluster offshore gas field, which is 180 km northwest of Bintulu, Sarawak, in a water depth of 101 m.

Additionally, MMHE has also secured four works packages relating to Rapid with several contractors. The contracts consist of piping fabrication, electro-mechanical and structural works.

MMHE had secured two contracts for the Rapid project from Toyo Engineering Corp back last August.

The newly secured contract is the piping and steel structure work for a steam cracker complex at the refinery of gas area.

MMHE, in a consortium with China Huanqiu Contracting and Engineering Corp, was awarded the electro-mechanical works for the Rapid Package-3.

The project is inclusive of a pipe rack, flare tower, mechanical, piping electrical and instrument and insulation works.

The contract was awarded by Technicas Reunidas and is expected to commence in January 2016 and be completed in July 2017.

MMHE has also been awarded another Rapid subcontract work by Punj Lloyd Sdn Bhd for Rapid Package-22.

The scope of work involves plate structure pre-fabrication, fabrication, painting, rolling and blasting, which is expected to commence in December 2015 and be completed by December 2016.

“We are doing our level best to continue replenishing our work order. With these latest contracts, MMHE has now secured an estimated RM975mil worth of projects for last year.

“We continue to be on the lookout for offshore and onshore projects, as well as for marine repair works, both domestically and internationally,” said MMHE managing director Abu Fitri Abdul Jalil.
