Petronas LNG Train 9 Project, Bintulu, Sarawak
The bridge which spanned over Batang Balingian, was the only link between Balingian and Kuala Balingian. It was handed over to the Public Works Department on 25th May 2007, 13 months ahead of schedule with cost savings, zero defects and numerous innovative design features – among others, it was the first in South East Asia to implement environmental friendly Scrap Tires Wall for the construction of the bridge approaches. This project won the MCIE Award for 2007.
Part of the aforementioned Sibu-Bintulu road package, this 456-metre bridge was only the second in Malaysia to be built using the Incremental Launching Method (ILM), whereby the bridge was actually built on lang and launched out in 20-metre stages. This process was not only one of the most dramatic and imposing sights in the entire construction industry – it also required equally considerable expertise in this innovative technology, which was widely used in Europe.
This 63 metre high by 267 metre long dam will have a capacity of 144 million cubic metres (1m³ = 1,000kg or 1 tonne) and will produce a lake with a surface area of approximately 10km². Designed to secure Kuching’s water supply for the foreseeable future, the dam was only the second in Malaysia to be constructed using Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) technology, which offers a projected service life of 100 years.
Due to technical complexity of the project and our strategic objective of leveraging on and learning from the best companies in their respective fields, we worked closely with Sinohydro Corporation of China, whose track record includes the 18,200MW Three Gorges Dam in China and the 2,400MW Bakun Dam in Sarawak. The dam has since been impounded.
The Department of Irrigation and Drainage commissioned the contract for the construction of the first two kilometers of the Flood Bypass Channel at the downstream end of the Sarawak River.
