Sarawak Consolidated Industries Bhd (SCIB) has terminated a proposed engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) project worth RM55.59 million, involving earthworks for the Prabumulih-Muara Enim tolled road in Sumatera, Indonesia. The civil engineering specialist’s unit SCIB International (Labuan) Ltd (SCIBILL) issued a notice of termination to PT Cipta Multi Sarana (PTCMS) on Monday (Feb 13), amid a lack of progress in the project arising from Covid-19 pandemic uncertainties and initiatives to review and update SCIB’s order books. SCIBILL secured the EPCC project from PTCMS in August 2020. SCIB managing director Rosland Othman said there are no penalties or liquidated ascertained damages to SCIBILL over the termination of the project.
