We see our recent wins as a testament of the strong synergy formed with RL Sunseap Energy which only reinforced our position as a formidable solar renewable energy farm contractor and owner. This is only the beginning of our journey with Sunseap. We believe we are well positioned to provide more clean energy solutions to consumers in Malaysia which is also in line with the national agenda.”
