UMP to become first university to offer railway technology studies
Posted on 22 July 2017 - 05:51pm

Quote:
PEKAN: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak said Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) will become the first technical institute in the country to introduce studies in railway technology.

He said the field of study is a necessity today based on current developments in the field of transport including the construction of the East Coast Railway (ECRL) project to be launched in September.

"I place another KPI (key performance indicator) for this university, all this while it was focusing more on management in the automotive field, but now I want it to focus on railway technology.

"The position of the UMP Gambang campus is also close to the ECRL route where this big project will be launched (in September)," Najib said.

He said this to reporters at the launching ceremony of the UMP Mosque and at the Syawal celebration with more than 2,000 UMP residents and community in Kuala Pekan here, today.

Also present were Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, UMP Board of Directors chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Hilmey Mohd Taib and UMP vice-chancellor Professor Datuk Dr Daing Nasir Ibrahim.

The studies, named the ECRL Industrial Skills Training Programme, is expected to begin in September with a first intake of 300 students.

The programme will provide and improve the skills of local graduates to be employed by the ECRL contractor and the rail-tech industry.

Najib, who is also Pekan MP, said the project needed massive support from all quarters, including the institutions of higher learning in the country.

"We need skills in the field of rail technology whether it is in terms of construction, maintenance and management areas and to launch this skills programme, UMP will begin the process of transferring its skills.

"The programme will take six months at first and in the future a longer study programme (from the six-month period) ) will be introduced,” Najib said.

The ECRL construction project will connect Port Klang to Gombak, Selangor; Gombak to Kuantan, Pahang up to Tumpat, Kelantan and is expected to be fully completed by 2022.

In Pahang, the ECRL route will pass through Kota SAS, Kuantan Sentral, Gambang, Maran, Mentakab, and Bentong.

Meanwhile, Najib described UMP as a valuable jewel which benefited not only education but also the surrounding residents.

"I've seen that lately, UMP has been very encouraging and in terms of ranking it is now ranked among the 251 to 300 best universities in the world in mechanical engineering despite the fact that it is still young.

"Even its graduates' marketability reached 95 percent, they are able to work and continue studying. So our move to make UMP a technical university is the right step and UMP does not need to open a faculty based on non-technical studies,” he said. — Bernama

if we are talking about express, maybe 270km/h to 330km/h since it is non stop.
But for domestic with several stops, it should be slower with dwell time ,decelerate etc

Indeed - even the planned High Speed train connecting 3 airports (Donmuang - Suvannabhum - U-Tapao) has designated speed as follows:

160 kph for section within Bangkok and 250 kph for the rest - causing the effective travel time from Donmuang to Rayong (288 km stopping at all 10 stations) to be about 2 hours

Railway line linking Penang sea ports and Thailand to spur economic activities
By Farah Adilla - October 6, 2017 @ 4:47pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The government’s plan to build a railway line linking the sea ports of Penang and Songkhla in Thailand will help speed up economic activities in the northern region, Maybank Investment Bank Bhd said.

“We are positive on this proposal as it will help to speed up economic activities in the northern peninsula. A major highway or railway line would also help to lift the movements of people (besides cargo) and tourism activities,” the research house said in a report.

The proposal was mooted during Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani’s visit to Thailand in mid-September.

Maybank IB said if the proposal becomes a reality, both countries are expected to see good flow of goods and containers between Songkhla Port and Penang Port, bypassing the busy Straits of Malacca, and it could also replace the proposed Kra Canal at southern Thailand.

Maybank IB said the proposal to better connect Penang Port with Songkhla Port could benefit Bukit Kayu Hitam.

It said higher economic activities at Bukit Kayu Hitam should, in turn, be long-term positive for Atlan Holdings Bhd as its The ZON duty free outlet sits on a large 772 acres of land which has been earmarked for a major development.

“For Atlan, it would benefit from higher spendings at its duty free outlet at Bukit Kayu Hitam, sandwiched between the Thai and Malaysian Customs and Immigration checkpoints; it could also help kick-start major development on its large tract of land where its duty free outlet sits.

“Besides Bukit Kayu Hitam (in Kedah), Atlan also has duty free outlets at the other border towns with Thailand - at Padang Besar (Perlis), Pengkalan Hulu (Perak) and Rantau Panjang (Kelantan),” it said.

Maybank IB has retained its “buy” call on Atlan with an unchanged target price of RM6.

ECRL industrial skills training programme to draw 3,600 trainees
By HIDIR REDUAN September 25, 2017 @ 11:27pm

Quote:
KUANTAN: The East Coast Rail Link Industrial Skills Training Programme (PLKI-ECRL) aims to attract 3,600 trainees who will be part of the ambitious 688km rail network project by 2022.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said the three-month programme is today taking in the first 50 engineering graduates from universities in Malaysia and abroad for the programme.

He said that from that pioneering number of 50, 29 trainees are graduates of bachelors degree in civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, while 21 are diploma holders.

He said the pioneering 50 trainees would undergo the training at the Gambang campus of Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), with the module being a joint effort with China's Beijing Jiatong University and Southwest Jiatong University.

"Trainees who have completed the three-month training under PLKI-ECRL programme will be automatically offered jobs by either MRL (Malaysia Rail Link Company) or CCCC (China Communications Construction Company) or by their respective subcontractors.

"UMP has been appointed as the Focal University for PLKI-ECRL programme due to the cooperation of the Ministry of Higher Education with Malaysia Rail Link, and for the successful completion of the East Coast Rail Link project, launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak (on Aug 9)," he said.

He was speaking on the sidelines of a meet-and-greet session for the first intake of 50 trainees here tonight.

Also present were UMP vice-chancellor Datuk Dr Daing Nasir, MRL chief executive officer Darwis Abdul Razak, and CCCC managing director Bai Yinzhan.

Meanwhile, Idris said the trainees would receive an allowance of RM1,000 a month for degree holders while diploma holders would receive RM900 a month.

He said around 300 trainees would be taken into PLKI-ECRL by December; 400 next year; 1,200 in 2019; 700 in 2020; 500 in 2021; and 500 in 2022.

He added that UMP, through the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, would introduce an elective related to rail technology this semester.

ECRL roadshow to tap local contractors
By NST Business - October 16, 2017 @ 1:21pm



Malaysia Rail Link chief executive officer Darwis Abdul Razak

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Rail Link (MRL) is embarking on a roadshow to tap Malaysian subcontractors in the East Coast states and Selangor for the RM55 billion East Coast Rail Link project.

Chief executive officer Darwis Abdul Razak said experienced local subcontractors that possess CIDB Grade G3-G7 and a minimum CIDB Score Rating of 2 Star, are encouraged to participate in a pre-qualification (Pre-Q) exercise.

The Pre-Q exercise will facilitate the contractors for potential tenders in the construction of the 688 km ECRL that stretches from Pengkalan Kubor in Kelantan to Port Klang in Selangor, he said.

The roadshow involving four state capitals from October 15 to October 23 would pave the way for qualified local sub-contractors to be involved in a host of civil works for the project, he added.

"The Pre-Q exercise was timely as MRL is progressing smoothly in the land acquisition processes in the East Coast states, and have also started soil investigation on several sizeable sites prior to civil works taking shape.

The full-scale site clearing on multiple areas along the ECRL alignment would commence in early 2018, he added.

"We trust qualified local subcontractors would actively participate in the Pre-Q exercise and tap the vast opportunities under the ECRL project.

"Ample packages such as earthworks, formation works, drainage works, foundation works, building works and tunneling works would certainly generate interest among the subcontractors in the implementation of this infra-rakyat project," said Darwis.

MRL, a special purpose vehicle wholly-owned by the Minister of Finance Inc is the project owner of the ECRL, while China Communications Construction Company Ltd (CCCC) is the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contractor.

As the EPCC contractor for the ECRL, CCCC would select the qualified local subcontractors in the Pre-Q exercise and have them shortlisted to tender for work packages in the project.

Some 180 applicants had submitted documents during the Pre-Q exercise in Kota Bharu yesterday.

Counters will be opened for applicants to submit their documents at Primula Beach Hotel, Kuala Terengganu tomorrow as well as at The Zenith Hotel, Kuantan and Grand BlueWave Hotel, Shah Alam on October 20 and October 23 respectively.

Business-class option for ETS travelers from next year
By NST TEAM - November 22, 2017 @ 1:30pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The Electric Train Service (ETS) will offer business-class coaches starting next year, said Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Ab Aziz Kaprawi.

He said the business class coach will have 36 seats which are more comfortable and spacious compared to conventional seating.

“Passengers can also watch videos on the screen provided at each seat,” he said when winding up the 2018 Budget debate for his ministry at the committee level in the Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday.

He added that nine additional ETS sets, the purchase of which were approved in the 2016 Budget to meet increasing demand for the north-south routes, are expected to be delivered in 2018.

In addition, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) will also introduce a new ETS ticketing system in two weeks.

In March, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had instructed KTMB to find an immediate solution to various customer complaints about its services, notably on the ETS online ticketing system.

KTMB currently operates 36 trips daily via its 14 ETS units from Gemas to Padang Besar and Padang Besar to Gemas.

About 7,000 passengers use the ETS services daily, with a capacity of 360 seats for each unit.

The ETS was introduced in August 2010.
