Sumitomo Corporation and South Korea’s Daelim Industrial have jointly signed a $1.31 billion engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to build an ultra-supercritical 1,000 MW coal-fired power plant in Manjung, Malaysia. The power plant is being developed by the Malaysian state-run utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad. The Sumitomo–Daelim consortium will commence construction in January 2014 and is expected to complete the project by October 2017. This is Sumitomo’s fifth large-scale power plant construction project in Malaysia. Under the EPC contract, Sumitomo will provide overall supervision and will be in charge of auxiliary equipment supply and civil engineering/installation work.
