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.

At the end of February, the EPC construction consortium and subcontractors had completed 125,303 lost time injury (LTI) free hours on site.

The stage-1 and 2 construction activities have seen a total of 253 employees and contractors inducted and work completed with one first-aid medical treatment case and zero lost-time injuries.
