Our core operations comprise the provision of utility services that are essential for daily life and support the growth, development and resilience of the communities where we operate.
Our roots lie in our origins as Malaysia’s first independent power producer, with two natural gas-fired power stations in Paka and Pasir Gudang, addressing the power shortages facing the country in the mid-1990s, utilising one of the least carbon intensive fossil fuels commercially available at the time.
Today, our operations encompass water and sewerage services in the UK, power generation and multi-utility operations in Singapore and high-speed telecommunications in Malaysia, as well as investment holding activities in the UK, Jordan, Netherlands and Indonesia. Ventures under development by our subsidiaries include the Brabazon property project in the UK, solar energy and green data centers, as well as digital banking. This is in line with our shift towards renewables and sustainable energy solutions.
