Gentari Partners with SEDC Energy for Sarawak Hydrogen Production Facility

Clean energy solutions provider Gentari Sdn Bhd, through its subsidiary Gentari Hydrogen Sdn Bhd, has taken a significant step towards advancing Sarawak’s new energy ecosystem with the signing of a Heads of Agreement (HOA) with SEDC Energy Sdn Bhd (SEDCE). The agreement paves the way for the joint development of the Sarawak H2 Hub, a centralised hydrogen production facility located in Bintulu.

The ceremony, held at the Borneo Energy Transition Conference (BETC2024) in Kuching, was graced by the Premier of Sarawak, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Abang Johari Tun Abang Haji Openg. SEDCE, a subsidiary of the Sarawak Economic Development Corporation, has been entrusted with spearheading the initiative, aligning with the state government’s commitment to promoting the adoption of new and cleaner energy sources.

The Sarawak H2 Hub, envisioned to be a global-scale hydrogen production hub, aims to serve as the primary supplier of green hydrogen for downstream facilities in the Bintulu division. A joint venture company formed by Gentari and SEDCE will oversee the management of the hub and optimise hydrogen production projects within the region.

Sarawak aims to become a commercial hydrogen producer by 2027, underscoring its commitment to transitioning towards a hydrogen economy.

The collaboration between Gentari and SEDC Energy builds upon their existing Strategic Collaboration Agreement, reflecting their shared commitment to developing integrated clean energy solutions and shaping policy and regulatory frameworks in Sarawak.
