PETALING JAYA: UEM Edgenta Bhd, formerly known as Faber Group Bhd, has entered into a joint venture (JV) with Resource Data Management Asia Sdn Bhd (RDM Asia) to establish and operate a new company to offer energy management services solutions.

The newly JV will also develop active facility management, a real-time data-driven, performance based maintenance management methodology and internet-of things (IoT) capabilities for the commercial and the industrial buildings/facilities segment within South East Asia.

UEM Edgenta believes the move will allow it to scale up its energy management business and leverage on RDM's technical expertise and experience in the industry, which include energy management services, remote monitoring and control solutions.

UEM Edgenta provides asset consultancy, healthcare, infra, facilities, industrial, energy, property and environmental and material testing services, while RDM Asia is engaged in intelligent facility management software and web based solutions.
