Recently, the project team of Penang 275 kV transmission line project in Malaysia built by CHEC, rescued two individuals who fell into the sea.
The incident occurred when a man and a woman fell into the sea near the first Penang Bridge, Malaysia, at 7:30 PM. Upon receiving the news during nighttime construction, the project team quickly sailed to the rescue, successfully saving the two individuals and a passerby who participated in the rescue. The rescued individuals were transported to the pier and then transferred to a hospital by ambulance.
The project department had previously conducted several emergency drills in collaboration with Penang's maritime authority. This rescue operation demonstrates the practical effectiveness of the project's emergency drills.
