MB: Smart industrial park to adopt green technology, spur quality jobs

05 Apr 2024

The launch of the NCT Smart Industrial Park (NSIP), Malaysia’s first managed industrial park, will spur quality job growth for youth in Selangor, said Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari.

NSIP, the first major development within the Integrated Development Region in South Selangor (Idriss), will provide a much-needed positive spillover effect to the southern region of the state.

“High-quality job opportunities for Selangor residents, especially the younger generation, are set to increase more rapidly,” he said in a post on social media site X (formerly Twitter).

Amirudin also lauded NSIP for being the first industrial park in the country to use sustainable green technology and for being equipped with an integrated canal system which doubles as a flood control mechanism.

“NSIP covers an area of 700 acres and will be developed in three phases. It is the first managed industrial park in Malaysia to use solar energy on building roofs and renewable energy sources.

“It is also equipped with a canal system that can function as a flood prevention system within the industrial area.

“This allows NSIP to be recognized as a GreenRE industrial area that adopts sustainable concepts in line with the Federal government’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions by 40 per cent by 2035,” Amirudin said.

GreenRE is the leading green building certification tool developed for the industry in Malaysia.

To ensure smooth project implementation, the Menteri Besar has also instructed the Public Works Department and local authorities to expedite crucial infrastructure works, including road construction connecting NSIP to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

“It is important for basic infrastructure to be completed promptly and with quality to provide confidence to local and international investors that Selangor is capable of being their preferred choice to establish their businesses in Malaysia.

“This infrastructure is also crucial to connecting the industrial area with KLIA, reducing the distance and travel time from the manufacturing site to the airport and subsequently strengthening the country’s logistics ecosystem,” he said.

On Tuesday (April 2), Amirudun inaugurated the NSIP sales gallery in Sepang, during which he revealed that the project’s gross development value currently stands at RM10 billion.

NSIP will feature 101 twin factories and 27 industrial plots, serving as a comprehensive hub for stakeholders like Invest Selangor Bhd and the Malaysian Investment Development Authority.

He added that NSIP has received over 60 per cent of bookings from local and foreign investors since its launch in April last year.

NSIP is among several other development projects within Idriss, a new economic region in Selangor, alongside the Sabak Bernam Development Area (Sabda) and the Selangor Maritime Gateway (SMG).
