KUCHING, March 19: The Sarawak government is looking to set up more Petros multifuel refuelling stations in the region, says Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said the stations would be set up in Pusa, Sibu, and Kapit as the Sarawak government is preparing to switch from fossil fuels to electricity, including hydrogen fuel, to power vehicles and not pollute the environment.

“We start with electric first to enable the people to utilise the new technology in vehicles. He added that we would control carbon mitigation, which is more sustainable for the environment,” he said after launching the Petros multifuel refuelling station in Daro today.

The Petros multifuel refuelling station in Daro is the first built outside of Kuching as continued progress by Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) Energy Sdn Bhd, after the first flagship multifuel refuelling station in Darul Hana was launched last year.

The launching of the multifuel refuelling station marks the first Dealer Owned, Dealer Operated (DODO) Multifuel Station for SEDC Energy Sdn Bhd and the first of its kind to be featured in a Sarawakian town landscape.

Meanwhile, he said efforts to implement water supply projects in Daro will continue, especially for the development of local industries, especially the shipbuilding industry.

He pointed out that it is important for the shipbuilding industry in the Paloh area and with Tanjung Manis designated to become a port hub.

“Daro will continue to develop due to the level of infrastructure that we have completed through the coastal road and the bridges that will be completed in the next two years.

“This will open up this area which has potential from the point of view of agriculture, shipping, and fishery.

“If our economy is booming under the supervision of Rajang Delta Development Agency (RDDA), then it will give birth to many economic sectors that will benefit the people.” — DayakDaily
