As children, it’s impossible to foresee what kind of career path we may embark on as adults.
But for Abang Mohammad Hudini Abang Kashim, a senior contracts administrator with Sarawak Energy Berhad, there may have been some tell-tale signs.
Hudini, as he’s known among his friends, told SarawakYES! that it was his mother who first noticed his interest in building things when he was a young boy.
“Since I was small, I’ve always been interested in construction. My mum used to buy me a lot of Lego sets.”
This was one of the main reasons he was attracted to join Sarawak Energy, a company he described as actively involved in the generation, transmission, distribution and retail of power in Sarawak.
“We harness power from hydropower, as well as coal and gas, and transmit the power through a series of network systems, which is currently being extensively constructed throughout the state.”
As a child, he would listen to his father’s stories about studying with oil lamps and this became one of the great motivators for him in his work, as he believes that everyone deserves access to electricity.
“Our main aim is to provide power stability to the state. I will make sure that my kids will never experience blackouts.”
Hudini works on projects that involve the construction of all of Sarawak Energy’s extra high voltage substations and their transmission lines.
One of the things he enjoys most in Sarawak Energy is the chance to work with people from different backgrounds and expertise.
Apart from that, he is also grateful the company provides them with facilities that promote good work and life balance.
“We do have a 24-hour gym in the office building, which we can use any time of the day.”
Ultimately, his work brings satisfaction to him, knowing he plays a part in helping to improve the lives of people across the state.
“Most of the projects we’re doing are mostly for the people of Sarawak, so you know what you’ve done is a big contribution to the community.”
