Paka and Pasir Gudang Power Plants
In the early 1990s, Malaysia was facing an urgent increase in demand for power. YTL Power International became Malaysia’s first Independent Power Producer (IPP), with YTL Power Generation Sdn. Bhd. being awarded Malaysia’s first IPP licence in 1993.
YTL Construction then undertook the construction, completion and commissioning of an 808 MW combined cycle gas-fired power plant in Paka, Terengganu, and a 404 MW combined cycle gas-fired power plant in Pasir Gudang, Johor Bahru, both completed in a record 22 months.
Integrated Cement Plant, Bukit Sagu, Pahang
The surge in construction and infrastructure development activity across Malaysia in the early 1990s created a strong and consistent demand for good quality cement.
YTL Construction undertook the construction, completion and commissioning of an integrated cement plant comprising one coal mill, one raw mill, one cement mill and silos, with an annual production capacity of 1.2 million tonnes of cement per annum for YTL Cement, designed to help meet the burgeoning demand and ensure the country’s infrastructure development stayed on track.

The vision for the construction of Menara Railway Asset Corporation (RAC) is to design a building that is intended to convey a dynamic interpretation of a crystalline form with performance facade glazing. In line with this aspiration, RAC and YTL Construction will develop and construct a parcel of land in the historic area of Brickfields into a new signature office tower, in close proximity to the hub of KL Sentral. This asset when completed will feature a 30-storey office tower with podium parking, a destination food gallery with rooftop garden, and retail lots. The building will be GBI certified and hold up to 150,000 square feet of office space, and become a key asset for RAC and the country in the future.
