KUALA LUMPUR: Southern Cable Group Bhd’s wholly-owned subsidiary Southern Cable Sdn Bhd has secured a contract from Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) to supply RM293.8mil worth of underground cables and conductors to the utility giant.

“The group’s largest contract to-date entails Southern Cable delivering low and medium voltage underground cables and conductors to TNB’s distribution network division over a one-year period from July 2022, with the option of a one-year extension,” the cable and wire manufacturer said in a statement.

Prior to this, Southern Cable had obtained similar letters of award (LOA) from TNB since 2019.




“This largest contract to-date brings Southern Cable’s total orders in hand to more than RM800mil, to be progressively fulfilled over the next three years. This will enhance our earnings prospects for the current financial year ending Dec 31, 2022 and onwards,” managing director Tung Eng Hai said.

“With Malaysia’s economic growth on track to regain its momentum post-COVID pandemic, we are optimistic that this LOA would assist the nation in achieving this,” he added.

With the new LOA from TNB, Southern Cable’s current orders in hand rose to RM816.3mil, to be fulfilled until 2024.

The orders in hand comprise RM466.7mil in order book from long-term contracts, as well as short-term unbilled purchase orders amounting to RM349.6mil.
