Project: Belantik Integrated Marine Facilities at Tanjung Chupak, Pasir Gudang

Year: 2010


Client: Bumitrail Engineering Sdn. Bhd.


The proposed site is located at Tanjung Chupak, Pasir Gudang, which located south of the Tanjung Putri Golf Resort and facing The Straits of Johor. At west (Lot PTD 109190) was alienated to Syarikat Sukma Kemajuan dan Perusahaan Sdn Bhd for heavy industry. The land has an area approximately 176 acres. At the moment, the land is overgrown with mangrove trees

After the success of the first phase of the research, ISI has been appointed to undertake Phase 2 of the research, Indeks Syariah Malaysia: Prasarana & Persekitaran. The questionnaire used in phase 1 is being strengthened and soon data collection will commence in February 2017 to kick-start the research.
