KUALA LUMPUR: About 1,201 ha owned by TDM Bhd’s unit, PT Rafi Kamajaya Abadi (PTRKA) in Indonesia, has been affected by fire.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, TDM said the areas are known as North 2 Estate at NB2-Tapang Ria, NB3-Kemantan, NB7-Kancing and NB8-Kayan.

“From the beginning of the dry weather in early August, PTRKA has been on high alert and put in place measures to manage and control fire incidents in the operating areas.

“This includes maintaining firefighting teams equipped to deal with the risk of fire during the dry weather and periods of strong wind.

Over the last couple of weeks, PTRKA has been able to contain fires that have occurred in those areas, ” it said.

TDM noted that reports to local authorities, including a police report, had been made on fire incidences and PTRKA was working and would continue to work closely with local authorities, the fire brigade and villagers in monitoring hot spots and joint operations for fire-prevention and fire-fighting purposes.

TDM practises the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) principles and is strictly governed by the “no burning” policy for new planting, replanting or any other developments. — Bernama
