Asiatic Group secures power supply contract worth US$475m

Asiatic Group (Holdings) Limited, an emerging player in the regional energy and power industry, has sealed its single largest power supply contract in Cambodia worth potentially US$475m over a 99-year period. This is the Group’s fourth such contract since its first venture into Cambodia’s energy sector in 2005.

The contract is expected to add approximately US$4.8m a year to the Group’s revenue once the power plant is fully operational in 2009.
