In addition, SNC-Lavalin will provide assistance to Gunung Hydropower during the tender evaluation, contract negotiation and award.

The Pulau Temelong project is located on the Perak River in the state of Perak, within 20 kilometres of both the Chenderoh Hydroelectric and Kenering hydropower plants, which are both owned and operated by federal utility TNB.

Rob Grant, senior vice-president of Power in the Asia Pacific said: “After 30 years of supporting TNB to deliver Malaysia’s portfolio of large scale hydro power projects as owner’s engineer, we are now particularly excited to be supporting private sector clients to develop and deliver hydro projects into Malaysia’s important renewable energy feed-in tariff market.”

In July, SNC-Lavalin acquired global design, engineering and project management consultancy Atkins.
