– BERNAMA

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 12 (Bernama) — Package 2A of the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant today
received strong interest from companies despite issues raised by the Selangor state government on the
project.

Over 140 officials from 65 companies registered for the project’s tender briefing at Pengurusan Aset Air
Bhd’s (PAAB) head office.

The project is expected to cost RM3.7 billion, including RM700 million for land acquisitions, PAAB Chief
Executive Officer Datuk Ahmad Faizal Abdul Rahman said.

The project is expected to complete in 45 months.

On the status of the land for the project, he said, the state land office had issued Form K (the notice for
taking land possession) for 64.62 hectares of land for the project.

The scope of works involves construction of structures, infrastructures and pipe works related to water
treatment plant; procurement, design, installation, testing and commissioning of plant and equipment
related to water treatment plant; operations and maintenance after completion of the works before
handing over to the operator.

Ahmad Faizal said today’s tender briefing and site visit tomorrow are part of the project’s mandatory
requirements.

“All those present were notified on the eligibility, the scope of works, technical and financial
requirements in addition to other general information on the tender.

“Sale of tender documents starts today and will go on until Oct 12. The closing date for tender
submission is on Nov 20,” he told a press conference.

Ahmad Faizal said 15 tender documents, priced at RM10,000 each, have been bought by various
companies since the sale commenced this morning.

Upon completion, the water treatment plant will have a capacity to treat 1,130 million litres per day
(MLD).

The 24-package Langat 2 Water Supply Project is part of the Pahang-Selangor Raw Water Transfer
Scheme implemented by the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry.

The raw water will be transferred to Langat 2 from Sungai Semantan in Pahang through a transfer
tunnel where the water will be treated and distributed to the Klang Valley.
