KUCHING: Bintulu Port Sdn Bhd (BPSB), the operator
of Bintulu Port has upped the ante in creating a safer working environment in
the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
latest initiative is the implementation of Quantum Fusion Resonance
Disinfectant Coating Technology in its key facilities and work spaces to
provide protection against the Covid-19 virus in the workplace.
Port Group chief executive officer Datuk Mohammad Medan Abdullah said the
enhanced sanitation process covered key areas and high-touched locations such
as vessels, machineries and office spaces.
said Bintulu Port was one of the first ports in world to utilise the latest
technology as a means to build a green bubble in the workplace on top of the
standard operating procedure (SOP) recommended by the Ministry of Health and
the other SOPs already put in place by the port operator.
BPSB has also implemented the concept of ‘cantonisation’ of operations, whereby
different aspects of the operations and areas in the port were demarcated as
‘cantons’ with defined virtual parameters and distinct demarcations to ensure
better monitoring and, if necessary, segregation of any areas that may be affected
by the pandemic.
Medan said, “For us, the safety of the staff and port workers is of paramount
importance in order to keep the port services going and ensuring that essential
supplies and the critical services of ports and logistics are not cut off or
are looking at every angle and enhancing them to create a ‘green bubble
effect’. We believe that a new normal of holistic prevention is the path
forward. The holistic approach when implemented is an investment for our
economy and the future.”
said the port operator was attracted by the state of the art Quantum Fusion
Resonance Surface Technology which had the ability to kill pathogens, in
particular Covid-19 virus on any coated surfaces.
efficacy of the coating is continuous, 24/7 for a year, thereby reducing the
need to do frequent sanitisation programmes as required by conventional
off-the-shelf products, he said.
Surface Disinfectant Coating product and technology is provided by a local
company, Fusion Nano Technology (M) Sdn Bhd.
Quantum Fusion Resonance Surface Disinfectant Technology is invented with
patent pending internationally including Malaysia. The product has been applied
in Singapore as well as Malaysia.
