KUALA LANGAT, April 3 — The NCT Smart Industrial Park (NSIP), Malaysia’s first managed industrial park, stands at RM10 billion in gross development value (GDV), said Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari.

Utilising the concepts of artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), the park will optimise energy efficiency and be filled with green industrial activities.

He said the implementation of such systems will drive the Net Zero 2050 Mission, as well as align with the First Selangor Plan (RS-1), which emphasises sustainable development goals (SDGs).

“This commitment is crucial in facing the challenges of the digital divide. We aim to build a digitally savvy and knowledgeable society and community.

“This project also emphasises environmental-friendly initiatives. This positions NSIP as a symbol of modernity with AI-managed facilities, smart surveillance, and a strong commitment to environmental principles by constructing factories which utilise solar energy,” Amirudin said.

Speaking at the NSIP sales gallery’s opening ceremony yesterday, the Menteri Besar said the project, involving three phases on 732 acres of land, has received bookings from over 60 per cent of local and foreign investors since its introduction in April last year.

“For the first phase, 95 per cent of its bookings were from domestic investors with the rest from foreign investors, involved in various sectors including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductors,” he said.

NSIP, the Integrated Development Region In South Selangor (Idriss) initiative’s first project, will be equipped with 101 twin factories and 27 industrial plots, serving as a one-stop centre for stakeholders like Invest Selangor Bhd and the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida).

Meanwhile, NCT Group managing director Datuk Seri Yap Ngan Choy said the park provides 30,000 centralised labour quarters (CLQ) and is equipped with rainwater collection systems and 100-year flood control.

“NSIP reflects the concept of a low-carbon AI park based on advanced technology while embracing environmental sustainability,” he said.
