Jayakumar said Air Selangor had also planned investments (Capex) of RM 30 billion over 30 years from this year to improve the water system for more than 9.1 million people. “Once this restructuring is complete, Air Selangor will be the sole operator of water treatment and distribution services and will focus entirely on improving the efficiency and efficiency of these services,” he said. He also assured that the Selangor State Government, by pengurusan Air Selangor, had committed to providing efficient, efficient, competitive and sustainable water services to protect the interests of consumers.- Bernama According to Jayakumar, Air Selangor is regulated by the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) in accordance with Water Services Act 655. SPAN will also act as a training centre for water use, water resources and the protection of nature. Jayakumar said four states, namely Perlis, Pahang, Terengganu and Kedah, still needed to complete the restructuring of their water supply and that they were unlikely to be completed by this year. “This restructuring will allow Air Selangor to operate Asset Light, which means that Air Selangor will no longer be responsible for securing financing for the development of hydraulic facilities and will no longer affect only PAAB`s hydraulic facilities by paying rents at competitive prices,” he said. The Minister of Water, Land and Commodities, Dr. A.Xavier Jayakumar, said: the acquisitions of water concessionist Puncak Niaga (M) Sdn Bhd, Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) and the ABASS Sdn Bhd consortium (Abass) were implemented at the end of 2015, while the acquisition of Syarikat Pengeluar Air Sungai Selangor Sdn Bhd (SPLASH) took place last August. “The project to complete the restructuring of water services in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya is not simple, and the migration process of the entire structure has begun since 2006-2007. There were four Menteris besar, three secretaries of state and three ministers,” he said. PUTRAJAYA (January 4): Air Selangor has completed the acquisition of four dealerships and will be the sole water supplier in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya from April 1 this year. The first and second endorsements were signed on July 10, 2017 and September 21, 2017, respectively.
