Lucy Electric, a leader in medium voltage, secondary power distribution solutions, has won the largest ever contract for ring main units in the South East Asia region. The contract, awarded by Malaysian utility company Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) via Lucy Switchgear’s regional partner, Sun System Engineering, is worth in excess of £11 million (MYR 55,100,000).

Under the two year contract, Lucy Electric will provide over 3,500 Sabre ring main units (RMUs) to support TNB’s strategic development of the electricity distribution infrastructure across Malaysia. As specialists in high-performance, medium voltage switchgear, the company’s ability to deliver volumes of high quality, cost effective, ring main units; tailored to meet local requirements, through its partnership with Sun System Engineering; and within tight contract timescales, were deciding factors in the contract win.

Commenting Danny Leong, Lucy Electric’s Regional Director for South East Asia, said: “Malaysia has seen massive infrastructure growth over the last decade, which has significantly increased the demand for RMUs. Winning this contract is a major achievement for the team, recognising our ability to deliver best in class solutions which meet the developing technical and market demands of our customers in South East Asia.

“We are committed to growing our business in Asia and this contract gives us a great foundation on which to build for the future.”

Zukifly Saadom, Executive Director of Sun Systems Engineering, said: “By combining our local knowledge and technical know how to tailor products to local needs with Lucy Switchgear’s manufacturing capabilities and dedicated after-sales support service throughout the product lifecycle, we were confident that we could meet TNB’s requirement for a first class customer service. We are looking forward to working with them in the future.”
