DBKL and SCIB

Sarawak Consolidated Industries, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, SCIB Properties Sdn Bhd, has received a letter of award from Ennova Sdn Bhd for an engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) contract worth RM30.75 million, says Bernama.

The construction and concrete products manufacturer said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia today that the contract entails replacing 200 lamp poles throughout the Klang Valley for Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

The integrated smart lamp pole replacement project engineering services for DBKL are expected to begin in June 2022 and end in May 2023.

"The contract is expected to contribute positively to SCIB Group's future earnings because any profit attributable to the group will be realised in stages throughout the contract's tenure and progress," it said.

The contract is subject to standard business risks such as material cost increases, labour availability, contractual terms including default provisions, subcontractor performance, and health and safety on standard operational procedures.

"However, SCIB will implement control measures and operational procedures to mitigate the anticipated risks," the company added.
