Down by the Sea

Another interesting project for the PPC Group of Companies, undertaken on a joint venture basis with KIER International Ltd of the UK, was the installation of the Seawater Intake and Outfall system for the TNB Power Stations in Paka, Terengganu and Tanjung Kling, Melaka.

This project presented the challenge to lay and bury large diameter (2.4m OD) underwater concrete pipes up to 850 metres offshore which involved the use of floating crane barges, dredging and diving equipment. From site preparation, design and engineering to construction and installation, out teams were involved in every step of the process. Through innovation and technology, both projects were completed on schedule and within budget.

This experience provided valuable Technology transfer to the PPC Group of Companies to further enhance its capabilities.
