Ranhill to reduce non-revenue water in Johor

PETALING JAYA: Ranhill Holdings Bhd, via its subdiary Ranhill SAJ Sdn Bhd (Ranhill SAJ), will be accelerating the reduction of non-revenue water (NRW) in Johor to 5% by 2025 from its current 24.12%.

In a statement yesterday, Ranhill said approximately RM3.4bil has been allocated for the Accelerated NRW Reduction Programme in Johor over the next seven years by water asset management company Pengurusan Aset Air Sdn Bhd (PAAB) and Ranhill SAJ, the state’s exclusive water services operator.

“Ranhill SAJ will pay back the capital expenditure from PAAB through a lease rental arrangement with the company.”

Ranhill SAJ initiated the programme to address two main losses: physical and commercial.

“As a result, the state with the second highest population in the country will benefit from the replacement and refurbishment of aging pipes to arrest water leakage in water stressed areas.

“There are approximately 94 pipe rehabilitation projects to be completed by Ranhill SAJ by 2020, while steps will also be taken to address inaccurate meter readings and illegal use of water in the state,” said Ranhill.
