This deal comprises a 46+12-year land lease agreement obtained from Westports Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Westports Holdings Bhd.

This development responds to Malaysia’s increasing demand for liquid bulk storage and underscores KL Bunkering’s commitment to environmental sustainability and innovative industry practices.

The new terminal, set to be a game-changer in the industry, will occupy a strategic location at West Port.

This prime positioning will enable the terminal to capitalise on West Port’s superior connectivity and access to local and international markets.

The facility will feature a storage capacity of 123,800 cubic meters spread across 41 vertical storage tanks.

It is designed to accommodate various products, including petroleum, petrochemicals, and biofuels, ensuring versatile and comprehensive storage solutions for various industrial needs.

HHH managing director Datuk Chan Say Hwa expressed his enthusiasm for the project.

“We are thrilled to embark on this ambitious project, which represents a significant milestone for the HHH group and the Malaysian liquid bulk storage landscape.

“Our commitment to green practices, combined with our strategic location and cutting-edge technology, will position us as one of the leaders in the industry while contributing to a more sustainable future,” he said in a statement.

Through several key initiatives, the terminal will embody KL Bunkering’s dedication to environmental stewardship.

It will employ certified sustainable products as the primary heating source, significantly reducing the environmental impact.

In line with global sustainability trends, the focus will also be on storing environmentally friendly products such as biofuels and materials related to the circular economy.

This approach minimises ecological footprints and supports the transition towards a greener and more sustainable industry.

In addition to its environmental initiatives, KL Bunkering has established a strategic partnership with Qastalani Sdn Bhd, a leading player in the Malaysian bitumen market.

This partnership includes a 46-year collaboration agreement for approximately 38 per cent of the first phase capacity, with an option to expand to 40,000 cubic meters.

This collaboration highlights the strong market confidence in KL Bunkering’s capabilities and the project’s potential.

The terminal’s development will be executed in three planned phases, with an estimated capital expenditure of approximately RM100 million over five years.

The first phase is anticipated to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2025.

This phased approach ensures a robust and scalable development process, allowing KL Bunkering to effectively meet the growing storage demands.

With a seasoned management team boasting extensive experience in the maritime and oil and gas industries, KL Bunkering is well-equipped to navigate the complexities of this ambitious project and deliver exceptional value to its stakeholders.
