Port Installation - Teluk Ewa Jetty

Through a ministerial order, PPC(Teluk Ewa) has been made the Port Authority and Regulatory Authority for Teluk Ewa Port in Langkawi. The extension of the jurisdiction is made possible with the amendment to the Penang Port Commission Act, 1955 (Section 80A). On even date, the Government of Malaysia privatized the operations of Teluk Ewa Jetty. Following the privatization exercise, the powers and jurisdiction of PPC are extended to Teluk Ewa Port.

To handle cargoes at Teluk Ewa Jetty, PPC (Teluk Ewa) issued a port operating licence to Kedah Cement Jetty Sdn. Bhd. (KCJSB) for a concession period of 30 years. As the port operator of Teluk Ewa Jetty, KCJSB is responsible to collect all charges at Teluk Ewa Jetty in accordance with the Penang Port Commission By-Laws (Scale of Rates, Dues and Charges) 1998 except for harbour dues.

PPC (Teluk Ewa) which was set up as a Port Authority and Regulatory Authority is a separate legal entity from PPC. Nevertheless, the day-to-day management of PPC (Teluk Ewa) is managed by the management and staff of PPC. In the same respect, the Board of Directors of PPC is also appointed as its Board of Directors with the State Secretary of Kedah replacing the State Secretary of Penang.
