ETS Engines To Undergo First Phase Of Testing - Ong
January 14, 2010 16:45 PM

SUNGAI SIPUT, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- The first unit of the Electric Train Set (ETS) which arrived from South Korea last month will undergo its first phase of tests to ensure its performance.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the ETS would undergo a 'static test', and if satisfactory, the engine that would be used by KTM Berhad to serve the Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh double-tracking route, would be put through a 'dynamic test' to study its cost efficiency and consistency.

"Upon completion of the two tests by KTM Berhad, the engines will be tested to determine its speed and time taken for the journey from Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh. The two tests are expected to be carried out before the Chinese New Year next month," he told reporters after handing out RM8,200 each as compensation to squatters affected by the double-tracking project, here Thursday.

Forty-three families were affected by the 329km Ipoh-Padang Besar double-tracking project which was being build at a cost of RM12.485 billion while the Rawang-Ipoh sector was completed on Dec 31, 2007.

Ong said Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur-Seremban electric train service was expected to start in March as scheduled.

He said the engines supplied by CMK Konsortium through cooperation from Hyundai Rotem from South Korea and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Melco), Japan, would become the fastest trains owned by KTM Berhad.

The engines that can reach speeds of 140kmph, would reduce travel time from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur from two hours 50 minutes to one hour 55 minutes.

He said the trains' coaches would be equipped with closed circuit TV (CCTV) to ensure safety of passengers, LCD screens, mobile food services, electric power points and toilets.

Once in service, the train comprising six coaches would be able to accommodate 350 passengers, he said.

He added that the fate of about 200 to 300 squatters living on land owned by KTM Berhad in Simpang Halt and Kuala Sepetang, Taiping would be tabled in the cabinet to find an amicable solution.

Sabah Railways also told to hurry up
Published on: Saturday, January 16, 2010



Kota Kinabalu: The Sabah Railways Department and contractors of the over RM300 million railway upgrading project from Tanjung Aru to Tenom have been urged to expedite its completion.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri, who made the call, said the long overdue project needs to be completed immediately due to many complaints from the public who depend on the railway for transport.

He said the 134km project consists of two sectors, the first involving tracks from Tanjung Aru to Kimanis by Suria Capital Holding Berhad and that the progress of physical work now stood at 93 per cent.

The second sector involved upgrading work on the tracks from Kimanis to Tenom by Hikmat Asia Sdn Bhd and that the physical progress stood at 88 per cent.

"Basically, we want this project to be completed as soon as possible although there are several technical problems because it has been delayed since Nov 2005.

"In other words, the project has been delayed for about four years and there are many issues involved in the implementation of the project.

"Extension of time (EOT) had been given on Oct 2009 and now the EOT has already lapsed. Another EOT is yet to be given and it is already late," he said.

Abdul Rahim told a press conference after he was briefing by the project manager and consultants of the project at the operation room of the State Railways Department here, Friday.

Also present were Deputy Permanent Secretary to the Infrastructure Development Ministry Ahmad Hashim and State Railways Department General Manager Mohd Arshad Abdul Razak.

Abdul Rahim said the Ministry expects the upgrading work from Tanjung Aru to Beaufort to be at least completed within this year to facilitate the need for alternative public transportation.

He said rural villagers in Pangi, Rayoh and Tenom are the most affected as their villages have no access road.

Malaysia to get electric train sets by March
By LESTER KONG Updated: Friday January 22, 2010 MYT 11:28:56 AM

CHANGWON (South Korea): KTMB expects the final three electric train sets (ETS) to reach Malaysian shores by late March.

The ETS costing RM48mil each will be transferred by Malaysian multi-transport operator Subali Pack Sdn Bhd from the Hyundai-Rotem factory here in South Korea.

KTMB electric train services chief operating officer Azizullah Kinayatullah said delivery of the ETS will be followed by two months of static and dynamic tests to prepare it for commercial use.

“If everything goes well, the sea journey should take about two weeks,” he added.

He stressed that time was critical to get the trains ready for operations in June.

“We are doing everything possible to have all the tests and commissioning completed as soon as possible for commercial run.

In doing so, we will not compromise on any safety concern,” the former KTMB legal adviser said.

Azizullah explained that static involved ensuring all on board electronics and other systems worked well while dynamic tests ensured for braking, acceleration and deceleration effectiveness.

He added that the ETS will be transported via Masan Port located 7km from the factory to Port Klang.

Upon reaching Port Klang the trains will be brought to Batu Gajah in Perak for tests.

Hyundai-Rotem (formerly Rotem) is the manufacturer of the ETS and was also involved in making trains for use in the US, Ireland, and Turkey.

KTMB had taken delivery of the first ETS on Dec 9 and the second on Jan 16.

One set would be completely tested by Feb 20 while the second test would likely be done by early March, Azizullah said.

ALOR GAJAH: Work on the RM3.45bil Seremban-Gemas Electrified Double Track Project is on schedule and set for completion in two years.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the work on the dual-track railway was 32.81% completed and it was expected to be operational by Aug 2012.

“Once completed, the travel time between Malacca and Negri Sembilan will be shortened and new six-coach trains capable of carrying 350 passengers at 140km per hour will be used,” Mohd Ali said after visiting a section of the track in Pulau Sebang, Tampin, recently.

Work on the 98.2km railway by Ircon International Ltd, a subsidiary of Indian Railway, began in January 2008.

The stations in Pulau Sebang and Batang Melaka will be upgraded as part of the project.

Mohd Ali said the state had suggested that the Federal Government extend the railway track to Malacca city in the 10th Malaysia Plan.

“This service could be an important mode of transport for locals and tourists and reduce traffic jams in the city,” he said.

He also suggested that the Government build a new track along the west coast linking Johor, Malacca, Negri Sembilan and Selangor.

KTM Berhad (KTMB) president Dr Aminuddin Adnan said the upgrade was in line with a rise in demand for intercity and interstate train services over recent years.

He noted that KTMB’s revenue from the intercity line increased from RM83mil in 2008 to RM86mil last year.

Work on Gemas-Johor Baru tracks to start soon
By DESIREE TRESA GASPER Friday February 19, 2010

SEGAMAT: Work on the Gemas-Johor Baru dual tracking rail project awarded to a company from China will begin soon, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

“This project is a major step forward in developing the state further,” said Ong during his visit to the Segamat Inland Port here.

He said in order to upgrade the current railway services, the country should consider having wider tracks that would be able to accommodate high speed trains.

He explained that many people did not understand why the Government was still focusing on trains that were only travelling at 140kph when countries like China and Japan already had high-speed trains.

“The problem lies in the tracks. The current ones will not be able to handle high-speed trains as they are too narrow,” he said.

A narrow track could result in a high-speed train being derailed.

“A standard gauge track is wider and it would be more stable. And it is time for us to set our sights on building these tracks alongside the old ones,” he said.

As for the Padang Besar-Johor Baru tracking project, Ong said compensation to squatters and land owners including the state governments was settled before Chinese New Year.

“The question of compensation does not arise anymore,” he said after visiting the Kereta Api Tanah Melayu Berhad railway station here.

On the Segamat Inland Port, Ong said the ministry was looking into reviving it.

“We found that one of the major reasons for the closure of the port in 2006 was the management,” he said.

He also added that he would be talking to businessmen in the area to gain feedback and gauge the viability of reopening the port.

The cost of building the Segamat Inland Port is estimated at about RM21mil.
