Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Berhad (MHB) through its wholly owned and major subsidiary Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE) is pleased to announce that it has secured a subcontract of the first offshore substation (OSS) high voltage direct current (HVDC) platform consisting of topside and jacket for the Ijmuiden ver Alpha Project from Petrofac International (UAE) LLC (“Petrofac”) (“the Subcontract”).

The Subcontract scope consists of construction engineering, fabrication, mechanical completion, load out and sea fastening, and architectural works on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.

Prior to the Subcontract, MMHE and Petrofac had entered into an early works agreement back in July 2023, in which MMHE has begun the preparatory works and deployment of key personnel for design and constructability support in line with Petrofac’s targeted delivery of the OSS for TenneT’s 2GW Programme in the Netherlands.

This OSS platform will comprise a topside, weighing approximately 30,000 tonnes (including equipment) and a jacket, weighing approximately 10,000 tonnes.

In addition, the parties will also collaborate towards the possibility of fabrication works for two (2) additional OSS units of similar size.

Pandai Othman, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of MHB said, “We are truly honoured to support TenneT’s 2GW Programme with our client, Petrofac, whom we would like to express our gratitude for entrusting us with this monumental project. This represents a significant achievement for MHB on two fronts that we have been diligently pursuing – venturing into the renewable energy sector and establishing our presence internationally.”

“Rest assured, MHB is wholly committed to the successful delivery of this project, upholding our commitment to stakeholders and recognising our responsibility to the planet and generations to come.”

“Gearing up for fabrication works, MHB will be expanding further the reactivation of MMHE East yard which will be utilised alongside MMHE West yard in delivering this project,” he added.

Note: MMHE West and MMHE East yards serve as MHB's operational hubs, featuring world class facilities. These yards rank among the largest fabrication yards in Southeast Asia, boasting a vast area of 2,005,540 square metres and with an annual production capacity of 129,700 MT. The yards are strategically located in Pasir Gudang, Johor, Malaysia.
