OSK: Dam, rail projects to benefit firms
Published: 2009/11/12

Malaysian companies are likely to benefit from the RM1.2 billion Mengkuang Dam expansion and the RM5 billion Gemas-Johor Baru electrified double track (EDT) project, according to OSK Research.

The government has given its commitment to grant to a Chinese company the construction of the Mengkuang Dam, which will increase Penang's water capacity from 23 metri cubic metres to 78 metric cubic metres.

The second phase, which involved of widening and increasing the dam's height and 13-kilometre dual flow steel pipe between the dam and Sg Dua water treatment plant is slated for completion in 2013, the research house said.

The government has agreed in principle for Chinese contractors to build the double-track rail project between Gemas and Johor Baharu, which is expected to have a track length of 250 kilometres.

"We feel that it makes sense for the EDT to be extended all the way to Johor Baru as it would create a second way rail connectivity from the north to south of Peninsular Malaysia, thus facilitating cargo flow," OSK Research said in a report today.

"Word is that a small contractor Global Rail SB along with its Chinese partner are looking to implement the Gemas–Johor Baru EDT on a private finance initiative basis," it said.

Local contractors such as MMC Corporation Bhd, IJM Corporation Bd, Loh & Loh Corporation Bhd and Fajarbaru could possibly land sub-contracting roles, it added.

These projects and some others, such as negotiations involving the paper and pulp plant in Sarawak by a company from China and an aluminium smelter, were reported amid the recent visit of China''s President Hu Jintao to Malaysia.

However, earlier speculation that Industrial and Commercial Bank of China would be granted an operating licence in Malaysia and that of a Chinese company buying a 10 per cent stake in Sime Darby did not materialise.

"We understand that a number of agreements scheduled to be signed between Chinese and Malaysian companies had to be postponed due to Hu''s tight schedule," OSK Research said.

"As the agreements, memoranda of understanding and project awards in principle have been either already built into expectations or were not specific enough in details, there was a sense of disappointment in the market as no new exciting awards and contracts were mentioned," it said.

"We feel that the visit has opened up a vista of future cooperation between China and Malaysia, with Malaysian companies likely to gain better access into the China market."

OSK Research believes that the postponed signing of certain contracts will eventually see fruition, recommending companies with exposure to China such as Hong Leong Bank, Parkson, MMC, Genting, Wah Seong and Kawan Food, among which stand to gain from warmer ties. -- Bernama

Kampar station, Perak.

This station is located just south of Ipoh, the capital of the Perak state.

Main entrance

This station enjoys relatively higher passenger number because there is a large university located in Kampar.

Ecofirst bids for mid-sized govt jobs
By Rupinder Singh Published: 2009/11/21

DIVERSIFIED group Ecofirst Consolidated Bhd (3557) is eyeing various mid-sized public projects worth up to RM80 million each.

"We have submitted a few tenders to the Ministry of Finance on several projects," executive director and group chief executive officer Tiong Kwing Hee told reporters after the group's annual general meeting.

"We are comfortable with (bidding for) construction projects worth between RM30 million and RM80 million," he added.

The projects include those under the Ninth Malaysia Plan as well as the upcoming 10th Malaysia Plan.

Tiong said the group is awaiting approval from the relevant authorities, but did not say when the results would be known.

Tiong also revealed that the group has clinched a sub-contract work worth RM166 million for the northern and southern electrified double-track rail project.

The sub-contract works for the northern rail project started three years ago, while it started work on the southern portion about a month ago.

"The sub-contract works will keep us busy for two years," he said.

MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture Sdn Bhd is the main contractor for the rail project between Ipoh and Padang Besar, while India's Ircon International Ltd leads the portion from Seremban to Gemas.

As part of its turnaround plan, Ecofirst has rebranded its key property asset, South City Plaza in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, to an educational mall, with a view to increasing its occupancy rate to 90 per cent from 75 per cent now.

Ecofirst is also searching for a "new core business" that would generate steady income annually for the group.

Tiong said he is keen to add manufacturing as its new division and is "negotiating with potential business owners to acquire them".

He said the group would be interested to buy over manufacturing companies that generate income between RM4 million and RM5 million per year.

"We want to look at the export market as well," Tiong added.

EcoFirst currently operates four divisions - construction, property investment, agro-biotechnology and network marketing.
