BTM plant needs federal govt approval
PETALING JAYA: BTM Resources Bhd’s subsidiary BTM Western Power Green Energy Sdn Bhd will be submitting its application and proposal for its planned RM435 million waste incineration power plant to the National Solid Waste Management Department after the Malacca Economic Planning Unit said the project comes under the purview of the federal government. In November 2017, the company had submitted its approval to the relevant Malacca state authority.
The group’s board of directors said that it had received a letter from Unit Perancang Ekonomi Negeri Melaka informing that matters related to solid waste management and public cleansing are to be brought to the federal government.
In line with that, BTM said it will be submitting the application to the federal government agency for the plant. In November 2017, BTM entered into a heads of agreement with China’s SEPCO Electric Power Construction Corporation for the award of a Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning with Finance contract for the plant.
