The document exchange was witnessed today at the Borneo Energy Transition Conference (BETC2024) in Kuching, by the Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Abang Johari Tun Abang Haji Openg. SEDCE has been tasked to kickstart the new energy ecosystem in Sarawak in line with the state government’s vision to emphasise the use of new and cleaner energy.

The planned global-scale hydrogen production hub in Bintulu is intended to serve as the sole supplier of green hydrogen for downstream facilities in the Bintulu division area, managed by a joint venture company to be formed by Gentari and SEDCE, which will also be responsible for optimising all hydrogen production projects within the region.

“We believe that hydrogen is the way forward and we are committed to contributing towards Sarawak’s Hydrogen Economy Roadmap, in addition to the Malaysian government’s vision and objectives in the Hydrogen Economy and Technology Roadmap (HETR). Hydrogen’s role in decarbonising sectors like energy, transportation, and petrochemicals globally cannot be understated, and the demand for low carbon hydrogen-derivatives is a testament to its rising significance,” commented Michèle Azalbert, Chief Hydrogen Officer, Gentari.

“This strategic partnership between SEDCE and Gentari for the Sarawak H2 hub will be a significant undertaking as this will spur more developments and attract new investments especially in the new energy sector. Hydrogen will play a role in the energy transition and as highlighted in the National Energy Transition Roadmap, Sarawak’s role in advancing this development is worthwhile to note. It resonates well with our approach to collaboration internationally and domestically,” added Robert Hardin, CEO, SEDCE.
