Naim bids for RM150m village relocation job

KUCHING: Naim Holdings Bhd is bidding for a RM150mil project to relocate villagers from several Bidayuh villages affected by the Bengoh dam now under construction in Padawan near here.

Corporate affairs head Ricky Kho said the resettlement project in Sematang, Padawan, was expected to be implemented in two phases, which would involve 1,300 villagers from four settlements.

“We (Naim) are now constructing the Sematang-Skio Road that will link up to the proposed resettlement site,’’ he told StarBiz recently.

The RM70mil road project is funded by the Sarawak government.

Kho said the Bengoh dam project, which is to supply raw water to meet Kuching’s requirements up to 2030, was expected to be completed early next year.

He added that Naim was eyeing another road project – from Balingian in Mukah Division to Bintulu – estimated to be worth RM120mil, which would be located within the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score).

Naim is in the midst of constructing the RM188mil Jalan Selanggau-Matadeng road project, also within Score, which is due for completion in the first half of 2011.

The company has embarked on the RM140mil Kuching flood mitigation scheme (phase one).

According to Kho, Naim’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Naim Cendera Engineering Construction (Fiji) Ltd, has secured a road maintenance job worth RM38mil on Fiji’s main Viti Levu island.

Naim’s first contract in Fiji is now underway and it involves the upgrading of the 9.2km Kings Road, a RM65mil project funded by Asian Development Bank.
