Second industry briefing for KL-Singapore high speed rail AssetsCo tender
By NST Business - August 23, 2017 @ 11:30am
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) will jointly conduct a second industry briefing on September 26 as they prepare to solicit bids for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) assets company (AssetsCo).

The briefing will share additional information and update on the AssetsCo tender and in response to the key queries raised by the market following the first briefing on July 5, the two government-linked entities said today.

“Similar to the previous industry briefing held in Singapore, the second industry briefing will be open to qualified entities who are interested in participating in the project’s AssetsCo tender, to be called by end of this year.

“The AssetsCo is responsible for designing, building, financing and maintaining all rolling stock, as well as designing, building, financing, operating and maintaining all rail assets (e.g. track-work, power, signalling and telecommunications).

“It will also coordinate the system’s network capacity for operations and maintenance needs,” they said, in a joint statement.

MyHSR Corp chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said the first briefing was a successful event with over 400 participants from 165 international and local entities.

“We had robust discussions with the industry and will invite interested parties to attend this second Industry Briefing. We believe these sessions will equip the market with information to form partnerships and prepare for the upcoming AssetsCo tender.”

LTA chief executive Ngien Hoon Ping said since the first briefing, both LTA and MyHSR Corp have been working closely to further develop the tender parameters and technical specifications.

“We are excited to share new information with the market, so that interested parties can be better prepared. We look forward to continuing the dialogue with the industry in September and receiving quality bids in the AssetsCo tender,” he added.

Singapore establishes high-speed rail infrastructure company

http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...e-company.html

SINGAPORE Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced on September 21 that it has established a wholly-owned subsidiary, SG HSR, to implement the Singapore - Kuala Lumpur high-speed rail project.

As Singapore’s high-speed infrastructure company, SG HSR will build, own, fund and maintain the Singaporean section of the high-speed line, including the terminus station at Jurong East, the tunnels, and a share of the connecting bridge over the Straits of Johor.

SG HSR will work with its Malaysian counterpart, MyHSR Corporation, to jointly select an Assets Company and an international operator via an international tender. SG HSR will also act as administrator for the concessions after the start of commercial operations in 2026.

The new company will have an initial share capital of $S 1m. LTA chairman Mr Alan Chan will chair SG HSR's board of directors.

New rail alignment explored for Malaysia-Singapore transit rail link

http://www.railwaypro.com/wp/new-rai...sit-rail-link/

The cost of the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System Link (RTS Link) will depend on the final alignment of the rail track, said Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan, Malaysian Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.

Recently, Johor ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar had disagreed with RTS Link’s proposed design as the potentially costly curved concept would disrupt the city’s skyline. Prasarana Malaysia Bhd had taken note of Sultan Ibrahim’s advice on an alternative alignment for the rail track and should be able to complete a study on the new alignment in approx. a month, Abdul Rahman added.

The design options include a high bridge, low bridge, diagonal bridge and a bridge parallel to the causeway, Abdul Rahman explained. Construction for the project is expected to begin in 2019.

The four-kilometre long RTS Link, which is expected to connect the terminus stations at Bukit Chagar in Johor Baru and Woodlands in Singapore, is scheduled to be completed by end-2024.

MyHSR, LTA appoint InfraCos to develop and operate HSR stations
September 28, 2017 @ 1:53pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd and Singapore's Land Transport Authority (LTA) have appointed infrastructure companies (InfraCos) to design, build, finance and maintain the civil infrastructure and operate the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) stations within their respective territories.

In a joint statement today, MyHSR and LTA said that InfraCos would pay the assets company (AssetsCo) an availability payment, which covers the capital expenditure and cost of operations, maintenance and renewal of HSR assets, excluding rolling stock and equipment at the depot and stabling facilities.

“This is in return for AssetsCo ensuring the availability of HSR assets for the operating companies (OpCos) to operate the express, domestic and shuttle services,” they said.

AssetsCo is a privately-financed assets company, responsible for the design, building, financing, operating and maintenance all rolling stocks and rail assets.

MyHSR and LTA said the OpCos would pay AssetsCo, train lease fees, which covers AssetsCo’s train- related costs, as well as the operations, maintenance and renewal costs of the equipment in the depot and at the stabling facilities.

In return, AssetsCo would make the trains available for OpCo International to operate the express and shuttle services, and OpCo Domestic to operate the domestic service.

They said the AssetsCo would be jointly procured by both Malaysia and Singapore's InfraCos in an open, fair and transparent manner, adding the AssetsCo tender would be called by year-end, and be evaluated based on the quality of the proposals.

The decisions were announced during the second industry briefing on Sept 26, which provided further information and details on the AssetsCo tender.

It took into account the key points arising from the first industry briefing and discussions with the relevant stakeholders.

The session was attended by over 200 participants from more than 110 international organisations.

MyHSR and LTA also said that a new double-track line would also be constructed between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

It is designed to accommodate all types of conventional high-speed rail trains and technology available in the market, with a design speed of 350 kilometres per hour, --BERNAMA

George Kent enters into pre-consortium agreement with Siemens for HSR
By NST Business - October 11, 2017 @ 2:51pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: George Kent (Malaysia) Bhd today announced that it had signed a pre-consortium agreement with Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, Germany and Siemens Pte Ltd of Singapore for the Kuala Lumpur–Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) tender.

In a statement today, George Kent said both parties will form an engineering, procurement and construction pre-consortium to prepare a joint offer on EPC level to the special purpose company. The SPC will bid for the development, financing, construction and technical operation and maintenance of the HSR.

The agreement may lead to George Kent’s participation in the HSR project.

“The HSR project is one of the most prestigious and coveted project in the rail industry as it is the first cross-border high speed rail project in Southeast Asia,” George Kent chairman Tan Sri Tan Kay Hock said in the statement.

“George Kent is pleased to be partnering with Siemens who have one of the most impressive track records in delivering successfully the safest and most reliable high speed rail systems in the world.

“We hope to be able to contribute our part as the local Malaysian company in delivering the HSR project,” Tan added.

George Kent in prime position for HSR: analysts
By Farah Adilla - October 12, 2017 @ 1:48pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: George Kent (Malaysia) Bhd’s tie-up with German engineering giant Siemens AG has thrusted the group to a prime spot to secure the AssetCo role for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high speed rail (HSR), analysts said.

The AssetCo tender - covering the HSR project’s development, financing, construction, technical operations and maintenance - will be called by December, according to project owners MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd and Land Transport Authority of Singapore.

Hong Leong Investment Bank Bhd (HLIB) said getting the AssetsCo role will further elevate George Kent’s prominence in the rail system’s scene.

Track record wise, George Kent is undertaking the light rail transit extension systems, Mass Rapid Transit Line 2 track works and LRT3 project delivery partner role.

Besides that, HLIB said the group’s net cash pile of RM395 million will come in handy for the AssetsCo bid.

“George Kent is a key rail play with exposure to the LRT extension, LRT3 and MRT2. We believe it is in a prime position to participate in upcoming mega rail projects such as the ECRL and HSR.

“It also boasts solid financials with above industry ROE (return on equity) of 24 per cent, three year projected earnings CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 12 per cent and net cash position of 70 sen per share,” it said.

George Kent yesterday announced that it had signed a pre-consortium agreement with Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, Germany and Siemens Pte Ltd of Singapore for the HSR tender.

Both parties will form an engineering, procurement and construction pre-consortium to prepare a joint offer via a special purpose company. The SPC will bid for the development, financing, construction and technical operation and maintenance of the HSR.

HLIB has maintained its “buy” call on George Kent with an unchanged target price of RM3.75.

RHB Research thinks the consortium has a fair chance in securing the tender.

“We view Siemens as a strong partner for George Kent in bidding for the HSR engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) tender by the AssetsCo, i.e a privately-financed assets company.

“Siemens has a good track record in delivering safe and reliable HSR systems globally,” it said.

RHB Research continues to favour George Kent as a proxy play for the domestic rail-related investments push.

“Our current earnings forecasts are largely anchored by George Kent’s existing strong orderbook of RM5.9 billion, which translates into a strong orderbook-to-revenue coverage ratio of 10 times,” it added.

The firm maintained its “buy” call on George Kent with an unchanged target price of RM3.78.

Someone kind enough to copy and paste the station renderings. Totally blown me out. It's like Malaysia in 2030 as envisaged.

Malaysia advances high-speed rail project linking Singapore

https://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Eco...king-Singapore

KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said on Tuesday that the land acquisition process has started for the high-speed rail project linking Kuala Lumpur with Singapore, paving the way for the bidding process to begin by the end of the year.

The 350-kilometer-long infrastructure project is expected to attract international bidders for the first cross-border high-speed rail line in Southeast Asia, which the governments of Malaysia and Singapore agreed last December to build. The rail line and related projects have an estimated cost of 60 billion ringgit ($14.2 billion).

Najib said MyHSR Corp., the Malaysian state-owned company in charge of the project, has started submitting applications to local state authorities to freeze land along the proposed track, a necessary process before the rail's final alignment is determined.

The government said it is committed to begin construction by the end of next year as originally planned. So far, authorities from both countries have conducted industrial briefings for potential bidders of the project.

When the rail line is completed in 2026, it will take just 90 minutes to travel from Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, to Singapore, a journey that normally takes about four hours by car. The line will include seven stops in Malaysia: Bandar Malaysia, Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri.

On Tuesday, MyHSR also unveiled the design concept for each of the seven stations, which will take into consideration Malaysia's heritage and cultural identity. It will also conduct public inspection beginning Nov. 1 to gather feedback from the public on the rail's alignment and the development plans for each stop.

The Malaysian government hopes that each station along the line will spur economic development in those areas, bridging the divide between urban areas, the suburbs and rural districts.

"The high-speed rail is a symbol of how far we intend to bring Malaysia forward," Najib said at the event in Kuala Lumpur, where MyHSR unveiled its design concepts.

Several companies have expressed interest in bidding for the various projects. Malaysia's MMC Corp. has said it will be partnering with a Japanese consortium in a bid to provide mechanical and engineering solutions. Another Malaysian company, George Kent, has teamed up with Siemens Group, with an eye on bidding for engineering, procurement and construction projects for the line.

Chinese state-owned companies have also expressed their intention to offer expertise for the rail project. China Railway Engineering Corp., which is currently constructing the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail in Indonesia, said in June that it was confident of delivering on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore rail project based on its experience in railway construction.
