Handover of the building to Altech will take place after final inspection and the identification of any punch list items.
The substation will be turned over to the local electricity service provider TNB (Tengaga Nasional Behad) for inspection by its project team ahead of switchgear installation, which is planned in parallel to the HPA plant construction to ensure electricity supply is available well in advance of plant commissioning.
