KUCHING: Sarawak will see its very first three-in-one fuel stations in Batu Kawa and Darul Hana in Petra Jaya here soon. 

These stations can refill vehicles powered by fossil fuel, electricity and hydrogen, and they will be the first in Malaysia and South East Asia.

Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian said the station in Batu Kawa would be constructed this year, but he could not reveal the exact location yet.

“What I can tell you is there will one each in Batu Kawa and Darul Hana,” he told reporters after attending a Chinese New Year gathering co-organised by Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Batu Kawa and Stapok branches at Stapok Community Hall yesterday.

The SUPP president said the stations would be set up under the state’s oil and gas exploration company, Petroleum Sarawak Berhad (Petros).

When asked about the cost of the Batu Kawa station, Sim said he was unable to announce it yet.

“I don’t know. What I know is, I fought for the station to be located here (Batu Kawa). That’s all. As for the rest of the details, we will have to wait for the chief minister to announce them,” said Sim, who is also Batu Kawa assemblyman.

Earlier during his opening remarks at the gathering, Sim thanked the people in Batu Kawa constituency, saying that if they had not cast their votes for him, he would not be where he is today.

“I will continue to ask for more development for Batu Kawa and make it the best place to live in,” he said.

He also called upon Sarawakians to remain united so that the state could generate more revenue that could be used for more development.

On May 27 last year, during the launch of Sarawak Energy Bhd’s (SEB) integrated hydrogen production plant and refuelling station, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari announced that Sarawak planned to set up the three-in-one fuel stations throughout the state.

He said he had directed Petros and Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) to set up their respective stations.

Abang Johari said the cost of each station would be less than RM15 million.

Also present at the gathering were Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Batu Kawa branch chairman Datuk Ahmad Ibrahim, SUPP Batu Kawa advisor Datuk Alfred Yap and SUPP Batu Kawa branch chairman, Fang Jee Khin.
