The country of Malaysia has begun an economic transformation program that will elevate its national status. The mega-project Pengerang Integrated Complex is south of the country’s capital, Johor, and is close to the international shipping lanes of the South China Sea, Malacca Strait and Singapore.
This high impact industrial zone will address the growing need for petroleum and commodity petrochemical products in the Asia Pacific region with a refinery, petrochemical complex, storage and logistics facilities. It will be the biggest petroleum and petrochemical hub in South East Asia.
One vital part of the 80 km2 site is the Solid Products Jetty (Package 12B) which has been designed and engineered by Aurecon.
Aurecon is supporting the Contractor, SYS-MCD (SPJ) Joint Venture (SMJV), with design and engineering of the civil and structural works, building architectural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing for the project.
The Solid Products Jetty package includes:
As a global organisation, Aurecon constructed a project team from international specialists within a short period of time to meet the Contractor’s timeframe. Engineers from Singapore, Thailand, South Africa, and Australia mobilised to support SMJV’s mega-project, and had an ever-present focus on the end result that was required.
Aurecon adopted a design-led philosophy throughout the project as there were many stakeholders involved with disparate views. By consulting with stakeholders in a formal and regular way, Aurecon was able to guide and assist its client in not only resolve any problems, but also identifying opportunities. For example, Aurecon identified a number of conflicting requirements in the end-client’s technical specifications which posed potential future operational and maintenance issues. Aurecon, jointly with SMJV, were then able to propose alternative solutions which were subsequently accepted by the end client.
