Semakau Islands

11 December 2006

Pulau Semakau
Pulau Semakau along with Pulau Sakeng and the surrounding reefs was turned into an offshore refuse tip after the closure of Lorong Halus in 1999. The project involved the construction of a perimeter bund and precautions to prevent the leaching of pollutants into the sea. The incinerated refuse is transported from the plant at Tuas, which also generates electricity, to the island in specially built barges.
