KUALA LUMPUR: Leveraging on the strong momentum for its upcoming NCT Smart Industrial Park (NSIP) in Selangor, the NCT Group has signed two memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with Huawei Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd and Green Quarters Sdn Bhd.
NCT Group founder and group managing director Datuk Seri Yap Ngan Choy said the collaborations would enable the group to attain its goal of providing a more agile and proactive business environment as it leverages on its partners’ best practices and cutting-edge solutions.
He noted that digital technologies are taking the world by storm and have undoubtedly reshaped the way people do business.
“It is indeed timely that we adapt and implement solutions that transcend the expectations of our potential investors,” he said in a statement.
“While we embrace the 4th Industrial Revolution phenomenon to drive growth and productivity, we are also committed to promoting and enabling responsible business conduct through the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) elements.”
Through the MoU, Huawei will provide information and communication technology infrastructure products and solutions, data centre solutions as well as solar energy storage solutions to support NSIP in becoming a fully connected smart development.
In addition, Huawei will look into providing value-added technology innovations developed and created by the company.
According to Huawei Malaysia Digital Power Business vice-president Chong Chern Peng, the pursuit of an intelligent era and carbon neutrality have become the global shared mission.
He said data centres will see changes in service forms, energy supply, operations and maintenance models.
Responding to this calling, he said Huawei provided innovative solutions such as fast delivery, low power usage effectiveness and centralised energy storage to create low-carbon data centres and to play its part in contributing to a greener world.
“The Huawei Data Centre Facility business will embrace changes by optimising organisational structures, continuously investing in innovation, building a healthy business ecosystem and driving the sustainable development of the data centre industry.”
Chong explained that these efforts are directed towards the development of building an open and win-win industrial ecosystem while promoting the sustainable development of the data centre industry.
Meanwhile, NCT’s MoU with Green Quarters is aimed at working hand in hand to achieve a sustainable industrial park in compliance with the local and international green-building certification to reduce industrial and commercial carbon footprint.
Given Green Quarters’ expertise in the field of energy and green consultancy, it aims to support NSIP with best industry practices by providing pertinent counsel in its area of expertise.
This will further unlock opportunities for both parties to explore other potential areas of collaboration including sustainability practices and renewable energy, said Green Quarters director Chin Yee Choong.
“We are pleased to explore this collaboration with the NCT Group to bring to life our goal of driving real change for the common good.
“We are confident that NSIP’s strong ESG proposition, coupled with our contribution to meet its sustainability goal, will position NSIP in an environment to defend and grow,” Chin noted.
NCT Group has the track record as the white knight developer having successfully rehabilitated several large-scale abandoned projects in the country.
