WATER TREATMENT, SUPPLY AND DISTRIBUTION
One of Taliworks’ core businesses is in the privatised water supply sector. It comprises an operation and maintenance (“O&M”) contract for the Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant (“SSP1”) that supplies treated potable water to large parts of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, and the water treatment, supply and distribution system for the entire Pulau Langkawi in Kedah. The O&M contract for SSP1, which is for a duration of 30 years, is undertaken by Sungai Harmoni Sdn. Bhd. (“Sungai Harmoni”) and expires in January 2030.
The water treatment, supply and distribution system in Pulau Langkawi is managed by Taliworks (Langkawi) Sdn. Bhd. (“Taliworks Langkawi”) under a 25-year concession ending in October 2020.
