Engagement between RECODA, SEDC and PETROS towards realising development goals

The Regional Corridor Development Authority (RECODA) today engaged the Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) and Petroleum Sarawak Bhd (PETROS) to further strengthen the relationship between all parties towards achieving the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) development objectives.

RECODA today was briefed on the latest developments on mega projects undertaken by PETROS, SEDC and state-owned unit Sarawak Petchem Sdn Bhd within the SCORE region.

During a sharing session with PETROS Group CEO Datuk Sauu Kakok, RECODA CEO Datu Ismawi Ismuni conveyed the need for gas supply to growth nodes such as the Samalaju Industrial Park to serve the requirements of current and potential investors.

Ismawi added that RECODA can assist PETROS in terms of human capital development requirements by facilitating upskilling and training programmes for oil & gas workers.

In a separate meeting later, Ismawi was briefed by SEDC General Manager Abdul Hadi Datuk Abdul Kadir and Sarawak Petchem Deputy Project Director Hussein B. Putit on the latest updates on the Sarawak Petrochemical Hub and the Sarawak Methanol Plant Project in Tanjung Kidurong.

Site preparation for the 1,000 acre Sarawak Petrochemical Hub, located 15km from Bintulu town, is currently ongoing, as are engagements with potential investors in oil & gas downstream activities.

The Sarawak Methanol Plant Project, located adjacent to the hub, will produce 5,000 tonnes of gas per annum as feedstock to industries when ongoing construction is completed.

In addition to implementing key socio-economic and infrastructure projects in the SCORE region, RECODA is also tasked with ensuring that major investment interest in SCORE continues to be promoted and facilitated and that job opportunities are created for Sarawakians.

RECODA collaborates with CENTEXS to provide skilled workers to industries

MUKAH: The Regional Corridor Development Authority (RECODA) is collaborating with the Centre of Technical Excellence Sarawak (CENTEXS) to provide industry players with the right match of skilled workers.

Through this collaboration, both parties will share knowledge on the required skills and technical manpower needs through consultation and engagement with industry players.

The signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was held between RECODA and CENTEXS, which was witnessed by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Abang Haji Openg during the launch of CENTEXS Mukah this morning.

RECODA, which looks after the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) development growth, has been aggressively engaging with industry players, particularly those at the Samalaju Industrial Park to facilitate them in their investment needs, including manpower supply to meet their operational demands.

Similar collaborations on upskilling and manpower development will also be inked between RECODA and other skills training providers and higher education institutions soon.

In addition to drawing investment to SCORE and creating job opportunities for Sarawakians, RECODA is also tasked with implementing infrastructure and socio-economic development projects through its three development agencies.

The agencies are the Upper Rajang Development Agency (URDA), the Highland Development Agency (HDA) and the Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA).

Construction of Pandaruan Rumah Temuai concludes with new roof

Visitors to rural communities in the Pandaruan Land District, in Limbang can soon rest easy as a new Rumah Temuai will provide an affordable and pleasant accommodation option.

With the installation of a new roof, the final touches are being made to the single-storey Rumah Temuai, also known as a Native Rest House, which has been under construction since late last year.

The rest house will cater to a growing need for a cheap accommodation option for rural folk as they travel to and from towns in the Limbang Division

Completed are the roadworks and the installation of the door panels, ironmongery, lighting, fans and rainwater downpipes.

The rainwater harvesting tank and drainage cover are also done.

All that’s left to finish up are the laundry drying yard, some drains as well as fencing and paint work.

The new Rumah Temuai replaces the previous rest house that has since been demolished on the same site.

This building project is implemented by the Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA), under RECODA.
