AT&S Kulim Plant Aims To Be Carbon Neutral

AT&S Malaysia hosted the Executive Councillor of Kedah State for Investment & Industry, Science, Technology and Innovation as well as for Higher Education, Dato‘ Wira Dr Ku Abdul Rahman Ku Ismail, for a visit in its office at the Kulim Hi-Tech Park Business Centre.
Amongst the topics of discussions between AT&S Malaysia and Dato‘ Wira Ku Abdul Rahman were talent acquisition in the Electrical and Electronic (E&E) industry, university collaboration, and the supply of renewable energy. Mr Vittorio Villari, the Executive Project Officer of AT&S Malaysia, “Dato‘ Wira has provided the necessary support, and advice on industry linkages and university collaboration that are crucial for AT&S to operate in Kedah.“
As AT&S seeks to reduce carbon footprint and achieves carbon neutrality by the Year 2030, Mr. Markus Sterba, the Technical Project Director of AT&S Malaysia, adds, “The availability of higher level of green energy supply, such as solar energy, hydroelectricity, and biomass energy, would determine if we can achieve our corporate goal of becoming carbon-free. Therefore, we are in constant engagement with NUR and other potential energy providers to explore alternative energy supplies in Kulim Hi-Tech Park that meet our needs.“
Dato‘ Wira was also taken for a visit at the construction site, where the two key production plants, an administrative building, and a few other utility buildings, will be seated on. In Dato‘ Wira Ku Abdul Rahman’s own words, “The progress of work at the site is remarkable. The speed of construction for a project at this scale, and the safety standard demonstrated at the site, are impressive.“
AT&S Malaysia aims to complete the piling works by March and that would pave way for the construction of a super-structure for the production buildings.
