The Supply Arrangement between PTVSB and SEDC Energy focuses on expanding the application of green hydrogen technologies in Sarawak. The arrangement covers the supply and operation of PETRONAS’ proprietary Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Electrolyser for the production of green hydrogen that would be delivered to the Darul Hana and Batu Kawa refuelling stations.

Both parties will work together to develop local expertise in manufacturing PETRONAS electrolyser technology and integrating it into the state’s current plant systems. The parties will also explore opportunities for the design and development of a “Hydrogen City” in Sarawak.
