“The group’s total outstanding orderbook stood at RM372.8mil as at June 30, 2023 and is expected to contribute positively to the group’s revenue and profit over the next three years,” the renewable energy (RE) specialist said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia.
Samaiden said the prospects for the renewable energy sector remain optimistic, buoyed by the support and commitments from the Government.
Group managing director Chow Pui Hee said: “The strong government support for renewable energy and sustainability, exemplified by ambitious projects and policies like the National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR) and the Bursa Carbon Exchange (BCX), dovetails perfectly with Samaiden’s vision and mission.”
“This synchronicity not only creates significant avenues for business growth but also paves the way for us to contribute actively to the country’s transition towards cleaner energy sources,” she said in a statement.
