Kuala Lumpur (ANTARA News) - Fresh from securing a major infrastructure project in Saudi Arabia, Zelan Bhd expects to clinch another major power plant deal in excess of 1 bln rgt in Indonesia, the New Straits Times newspaper reported.
The newspaper quoted an unidentified source as saying that the design-and-build project in Indonesia is bigger than the one Zelan won recently in Saudi Arabia.
Last Friday, the main board-listed builder told Bursa Malaysia that the company had won its second infrastructure job in Saudi Arabia worth 938.6 mln rgt to build a power generation and water desalination plant.
The source said that under the proposed Indonesian project, Zelan will be working jointly with PT Primanaya.
The plant will comprise two units capable of generating at least 600 megawatts (MW) of power.
Last July, Indonesian state-owned electricity distribution company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara invited bids to build 10 power plants on Java island with a combined capacity of 7,000 MW.
It divided the power stations into two classes: three stations with 600MW-700MW capacity each, while the other seven stations will have two units with 300MW-400MW capacity each. (*)
