BPHB explores cooperation and growth from biohub project
20 Apr 2022
A delegation from the Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands, alongside other parties for the proposed Biohub Project, paid a visit to Bintulu Port Holdings Berhad (BPHB) from April 16-17.
The other parties were Malaysia Investment Development Agency (MIDA), Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) and Regal Lands Sdn Bhd (RLSB).
The corporate visit was conducted pursuant to the signing of the second Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the parties on June 10 last year, covering the second phase of the project feasibility study.
The two-day visit included a meeting between BPHB’s management team led by the Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Mohammad Medan Abdullah, with the Port of Rotterdam’s team led by its Adviser Andre Gijsbert.
BPHB said it is looking forward to seriously exploring the potential cooperation and business growth opportunities coming from this Biohub Project.
This project is also in line with the Group’s sustainable goals as have been outlined in the Bintulu Port Group Smart Digital Green Port (SDGP) Blueprint.
PHB is a port operator, namely for Bintulu Port and Samalaju Industrial Port, which combined are the main import and export gateways to the nation and Sarawak.
Bintulu Port is globally recognised as one of the largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export terminals in the world in a single location.
“Samalaju Port is a special purpose port dedicated to serve all the industries located at the Samalaju Industrial Park.
“Therefore, both ports have the potential to play a vital role in the global supply and logistics chains and would be well positioned in contributing to the success of the Biohub Project,” it said in a statement.
