Empangan Murum RM4.1 bilion beroperasi
MD. AZRIN ROSLY
28 September 2016 1:02 AM



Quote:
BELAGA 27 Sept. - Sarawak kini memiliki kemudahan janakuasa elektrik termoden apabila Empa*ngan Hidroelektrik (HEP) Murum bernilai RM4.1 bilion dibuka operasinya secara rasmi hari ini.

Projek mega yang berkeupayaan membekalkan 944 megawatt (MW) tenaga elektrik kepada sistem grid di negeri ini, terletak di hulu Batang Rejang dan 200 kilometer (km) dari pusat bandar Bintulu.

Pengerusi Sarawak Energy Ber*had (SEB), Datuk Amar Abdul Hamed Sepawi berkata, HEP Mu*rum merupakan projek hidro elek*trik pertama dibina oleh SEB di bawah program Koridor Tenaga Diperbaharui Sarawak (SCORE).

Menurut beliau, sebelum ini, SEB telah membangunkan HEP Batang Ai terletak kira-kira 150km dari Sri Aman 30 tahun lalu.

“Empangan ini (HEP Murum) dijangka menggalakkan lagi sektor perindustrian terutama di kawasan Taman Perindustrian Samalaju, Bintulu.

“Pada masa sama, projek ini juga mampu meningkatkan pertumbuhan pelbagai sektor ekonomi di Sarawak dalam usaha mencapai status negeri berpendapatan tinggi menjelang 2030,” katanya berucap dalam majlis perasmian HEP Murum, di sini hari ini.

Majlis perasmian HEP Murum disempurnakan oleh Yang Dipertua Negeri, Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud dan turut dihadiri Ketua Menteri, Tan Sri Adenan Satem.

Dalam pada itu, Abdul Hamed berkata, SEB turut merancang untuk membekalkan tenaga elektrik yang dijana dari HEP Murum ke Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia termasuk ke Sabah dan Brunei pada masa depan.

Sebagai permulaan operasi, katanya, tujuh kampung di Tegu*lang dan Mentalun yang menjadi penempatan semula rumah panjang di Murum di sini, bakal menikmati kemudahan elektrik selama 24 jam.

“Selain lain, sumber tenaga empangan ini juga bakal menyediakan kuasa untuk memenuhi hampir satu pertiga daripada permintaan pelbagai industri melibatkan kawasan SCORE,” katanya.

HEP Murum mempunyai keistimewaan kerana mempunyai alur limpah pelongsor bertingkat tertinggi di dunia, selain turut menempatkan sebuah Stesen Janakuasa Ekologi bagi memastikan ekosistem di kawasan hiliran empangan kekal aktif.

Malaysia successfully implements 830 PPP projects to date
October 14, 2016, Friday

Quote:
SERDANG: Malaysia has successfully implemented 830 Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects as of August this year, said Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa.

He said PPP, a smart partership between the government and private sector for the purpose of providing public infrastructure, community facilities and related services, had saved a total of RM222.9 billion, namely in capital expenditure of RM207.15 billion and operating expenditure of RM9.25 billion.

The total proceeds from the sale of government equities and assets were at RM6.5 billion, he added.

“In this process, the civil service becomes leaner,” he said at the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Faculty Programme on “Transformation Towards National Development” at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) yesterday.

Also present were Higher Education Ministry Secretary-General, Tan Sri Dr Noorul Ainur Mohd Nur and UPM Vice-Chancellor, Professor Datin Paduka Dr Aini Ideris.

PPP is one of the strategies promoted under the New Economic Model introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Examples of successful PPP projects in the country are the 36 toll highways, privatisation of government office buildings in Putrajaya and 12 MARA University of Technology branch campuses in the country.

Ali said PPP could deliver value for money by harnessing the private sector expertise in combining the design and operation of an asset and providing services in a more efficient manner compared to traditional forms of procurement.

On the 2017 Budget, Ali is optimistic that it would reveal new initiatives and programmes that support national growth and bring Malaysia closer to becoming a high-income economy. — Bernama

Westports on track to complete CT8 expansion by 2017
BY LIDIANA ROSLI - 6 OCTOBER 2016 @ 7:09 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/10/1...expansion-2017

PORT KLANG: Westports Holdings Bhd (Westports) has completed the first phase of its Container Terminal 8 (CT8) expansion and is on track towards its full completion in 2017. Total investments for the CT8 project is at RM1.05 billion, with the cost of the first phase estimated at half of that.

Construction of the second container terminal gate has also been completed and was officiated this afternoon by Minister of International Trade and Industries, Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.

"I am pleased to see the progress of the CT8 and Westports has also said that they are on track to complete this project in the estimated time by 2017," he said at the officiation, today. "I was also notified that Westports is also in the midst of finalising its investments and planning for Container Terminal 9 (CT9), details of which will be announced at a later date."

It is learnt that total investments for the CT9 project is at RM2 billion. Westports has yet to finalise when to start the project. Mustapa went on to say that Westports' expansion plan is in line with the government's five years Logistics and Trade Facilitation Masterplan (2015-2020), which seek to elevate Malaysia to be the "Preferred Logistics Gateway to Asia" by 2020 and beyond.

"We will do this by focusing on five strategic shifts which include strengthening the institutional and regulatory framework; by enhancing trade facilitation; by internationalising logistics services; by developing infrastructure and freight demand while also strengthening human capital," he said.

It is estimated that the successful implementation of the masterplan will increase cargo volume to 880 million tonnes with an annual growth of eight per cent in 2020 and beyond. Meanwhile, the full completion of the CT8 expansion would extend Westports contiguous linear berth to 5.2 km. The expanded and enhanced facilities would also allow Westports to accommodate more effectively the growing requirements of new and larger container shipping alliances in 2017.

Its completion will also reinforce Westports as a pre-eminent regional transhipment hub while accommodating Malaysia's growing economic, import and export requirements.

A dampener for Greater KL
BY MENG YEW CHOONG Tuesday, 18 October 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/news/natio...s-water-index/



PETALING JAYA: Greater Kuala Lumpur ranks poorly in terms of the sustainability of its water-related infrastructure, coming in at 37th place among 50 global cities assessed under the Sustainable Cities Water Index.

The inaugural index by global engineering firm Arcadis rated Singapore at 22nd, Seoul 23rd, Tokyo 26th and Hong Kong 30th.

Poor sanitation and insufficient treatment of wastewater pushed many Asian cities near the bottom such as Manila 48th, Mumbai 49th and New Delhi 50th.

European cities topped the list, with Rotterdam at first place.

According to John Batten, Arcadis global director for water, many cities still think their responsibility hinges mainly on the provision of clean water or the quality aspect.

“This has been the classic approach to water, but we are trying to drive the discussion to another level,” he told The Star.

“What burgeoning cities need to look at is network efficiency.

“Cities need to effectively manage their water supply network in a cost-effective and responsible way.

“This includes preventing leakage, managing non-revenue water, recovery cost of providing water or what is known as the full cost recovery model.

“And they need to make sure they demonstrate continuity in providing water,” said Batten.

Kuala Lumpur is glaringly weak in the “resilience” area that contributed to its low ranking.

The city can fluctuate from abundance (flash floods) to scarcity (low levels at dams) all within the same year.

“We spent a few days in KL, and saw some really intense downpours,” said Batten, adding that it is time to focus on making Kuala Lumpur a “sponge city”.

A sponge city is designed to soak up peak flows and store them in aesthetically constructed facilities for future reuse.

“Being a sponge city helps a city maintain that balance between abundance and scarcity, and could help Kuala Lumpur to better withstand natural disasters, unforseen shortages, and respond in a positive way.

“The keyword is recovery. Having sponge-like qualities helps in quicker recoveries, while helping restore some aesthetic value to the city,” said Batten, who proposes that water issues fall into three simple buckets of quality, efficiency and resiliency.

“Lots of cities are only focused on one. But it is only by looking at all three that cities become sustainable,” he said.

For the complete index, go to www.arcadis.com. The full story can be read in today’s Star2.

Johor to emulate South Korea in developing pharmapolis
October 25, 2016, Tuesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/10...g-pharmapolis/

JOHOR BAHRU: As part of the strategy to make Johor a bio-medical hub, the state government plans to develop its own pharmapolis by emulating South Korea’s Osong Medical Park.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said it is a long term plan of the state government to develop the bio-medical hub and towards this end, will need a roadmap.

“This is only a start. We will study the plan which includes establishing the pharmapolis.

“The collaboration between J-Biotech and South Korea’s KBIO Health will certainly pave the way in helping us develop the roadmap,” he told reporters after officiating the opening of the Johor International Bioeconomy Conference here yesterday.

Mohamed Khaled said the roadmap would likely see the development of the bio-medical hub, which includes components such a research and development centre, as well as the production of medical devices.

Earlier, J-Biotech signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with KBIO Health to develop a bio-medical cluster in Johor, complete with a condusive ecosystem and ready components.

Apart from that, J-Biotech also signed another two MoUs with JK Medical Group, as well as Rimbunan Serantau Sdn Bhd.

With JK Medical Group, J-Biotech plans to develop a total wellness centre equipped with rejuvenation and recovery facilities.

The MoU with Rimbunan Serantau is on commercialisation activities for biodegradable materials and biocompost.

Meanwhile, J-Biotech Chief Executive Officer Asman Shah Abd Rahman said KBIO Health is a South Korean government agency responsible for the development of the Osong Medical Park, located 45 minutes from Seoul.

“The study (on the biomedical hub roadmap) will start next year and will likely take six to nine months to complete,” he said.

Osong Medical Park or known as Osong Bio-Technopolis, is a state run technopolis for the bio-industry initiated by the South Korean government. — Bernama

Labuan to have RM7 mln international racing track
October 22, 2016, Saturday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/10...-racing-track/

LABUAN: Labuan is set to become a motorcycling enthusiast destination with the construction of the Labuan International Motorsports Circuit early next year.

Costing RM7 million, the project will be built on a five-acre site in Kiansam in two phases and scheduled to be completed in 2018.

Labuan Umno youth chief Rafi Ali Hassan said phase 1 involved an allocation of RM3 million through the Implementation Coordination Unit (under the Prime Minister’s Department).

“We applied for the project five years ago on the request of the Labuan youth and its approval was granted recently,” he told a press conference after attending the Labuan Rugby Carnival Welcoming Dinner here last night.

Rafi who is also political secretary to Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, said phase 2 involving an allocation of RM4 million would feature tracks for race pit, go-cart, mini GP, drag strip, pocket bike, supermoto and superbike.

Other facilities include a grandstand with hill stand seating, paddock, administrative building and retail premises.

“The circuit is strategically located and close to Labuan halal hub. Future 4X4 projects and motocross extreme games on a 20 acre site adjacent to the circuit are also in the pipeline.

“As such, we will propose for the Kiansam area to be gazetted as a motorcycling sports hub soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, the one-kilometre circuit which can host at least seven types of racing event will be built in adherence to international standards.

“We also want the circuit to provide a brighter future for our youth via a safer racing environment; we are aiming to add motorcycling sports as another tourism product in Borneo, particularly Labuan,” Rafi said. – Bernama

HeiTech Padu to maintain JPJ’s online system for RM79.8mil
BY M. HAFIDZ MAHPAR Wednesday, 2 November 2016 | MYT 2:33 AM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...or-rm79pt8mil/

KUALA LUMPUR: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has appointed HeiTech Padu Bhd to provide two-year maintenance services for its online transaction system, mySikap, for a contract value of RM79.77mil.

The systems integrator, which developed the RM282mil mySikap system with infrastructure support from IBM Malaysia, told Bursa Malaysia that it had received a letter of award from JPJ on Oct 28, which was accepted on Nov 1.

The contract is for the period from November 2016 to December 2018.

The homegrown IT company said any further renewal or extension would be at the Government’s discretion.

Transactions handled by mySikap include vehicle registrations, licence and road tax renewals, change of vehicle ownership and summons payments.

MySikap was rolled out nationwide in November 2013 to replace JPJ’s Sikap system that had been used since 1992, but it was initially plagued by technical glitches that led to delays in renewing driving licences and road tax, among others.

HeiTech Padu said the contract would not have any material effect on the group’s net assets for the financial year ending Dec 31, 2016, and was expected to contribute positively to the group’s future earnings.

Last year the group made a net profit of RM1.21mil on revenue of RM376.24mil.

Half of its revenue came from the public sector, with the JPJ mainframe upgrade project being one of the main contributors.

China Construction Bank gets Malaysian banking licence
BY P. ARUNA Wednesday, 2 November 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...nking-licence/



Bank Negara said the banking giant’s unit, China Construction Bank (Malaysia) Bhd (CCB Malaysia), was
granted the licence based on its prudential strength and ability to “bring in propositions that are in the
best interest of Malaysia”. (Expansion: A sign of China Construction Bank is seen at a branch in Beijing,
China. CCB ranked second on Forbes’ list of the world’s biggest public companies in 2016. It presently
has a market capitalisation of US1.26 trillion. — Reuters)


PETALING JAYA: China Construction Bank Corp (CCB), ranked as the world’s second-largest bank, has been granted a Malaysian commercial bank licence by the Minister of Finance.

Bank Negara said the banking giant’s unit, China Construction Bank (Malaysia) Bhd (CCB Malaysia), was granted the licence based on its prudential strength and ability to “bring in propositions that are in the best interest of Malaysia”.

The central bank said the issuance of the licence was the first under the Financial Services Act 2013.

“CCB Malaysia’s predominant focus in infrastructure project financing will add value to Malaysia’s transformation into a high-income nation.

“The presence of CCB Malaysia is expected to further strengthen the economic and financial linkages between the People’s Republic of China and Malaysia, and contribute towards the development of an effective and dynamic financial sector in Malaysia,” it said in a statement yesterday.

CCB’s unit is the third Chinese bank to be granted a banking licence in Malaysia after Bank of China (Malaysia) Bhd and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Malaysia) Bhd (ICBC).

It had been speculated recently that CCB had applied for a banking licence in Malaysia and was awaiting a decision from the authorities.

CCB ranked second on Forbes’ list of the world’s biggest public companies in 2016. It presently has a market capitalisation of US$1.26 trillion.

In Malaysia, CCB is part of the consortium comprising four local banks and four international banks with a combined asset base exceeding US$13 trillion, which set up the Bandar Malaysia Fund.

The fund is to finance the development of the Bandar Malaysia project in the southern fringes of the capital’s central business district. Participating international banks also include the Bank of China, ICBC and Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp.

The local banking groups backing the fund include CIMB Group Holdings Bhd, Malayan Banking Bhd, RHB Capital Bhd and Affin Bank Bhd.

In August, CIMB announced an agreement with CCB to facilitate cross-border investments in Malaysia and China.

Under the deal, CIMB said CCB would act as its sub-custodian bank in China to clear, settle and safekeep Chinese shares, bonds and other investment products on behalf of the Malaysian bank and its clients.

A memorandum of understanding was also inked, whereby CCB agreed to appoint CIMB as its sub-custodian bank to clear, settle and safekeep its customers’ investment portfolio in Malaysia.

The two organisations also committed to explore further collaborations to appoint each other as onshore settlement agents in respect of each party’s inter-bank bond market activities.

RM12.5 billion Kuala Linggi International Port (KLIP) development launched
BY BILQIS BAHARI - 1 NOVEMBER 2016 @ 11:10 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/11/1...pment-launched

KUALA LUMPUR: T.A.G Marine Sdn Bhd, operator of Kuala Linggi Port in Malacca, is in the midst of evaluating potential foreign investors for its RM12.5 billion expansion plans.

The private marine company's managing director, Datuk Wira Noor Mustafa Kamal Yahya, said T.A.G Marine is evaluating a few proposals from Chinese, Dutch and American companies.

T.A.G Marine's plans are to transform and upgrade the facility into the Kuala Linggi International Port (KLIP), the world's preferred shipping hub in the Straits of Malacca. "I think it's a dream to have it. We are very serious about what we are building," Noormustafa said at a press conference after the launch of KLIP yesterday.

The event was attended by Governor of Malacca, Tun Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Mohd Khalil Yaakob; Second Minister of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan; and Member of State Assembly and State Executive Council Malacca, Datuk AR Ismail Othman. So far, T.A.G Marine has formed a partnership with China Railway Port & Engineering Group Co. Ltd. to develop KLIP.

The 10-year project’s main developer will be Linggi Base Sdn Bhd. Noormustafa said KLIP will be developed in four phases, which will comprise a hard standing port premises, a 1.5-meter cubic tank facility, as well as a heavy fabrication yard and ship repair facility.

The Kuala Linggi Port has been operated by T.A.G Marine for 10 years. The company's operations include maritime services, ship-to-ship operations, pilotage and support craft services, as well as ship husbandry.

Second bridge for Pahang's Tanjung Lumpur folks by 2019
BY NOR AIN MOHAMED RADHI - 1 NOVEMBER 2016 @ 7:29
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/11/1...pur-folks-2019



KUANTAN: Residents of Tanjung Lumpur here, can now look forward to smoother traffic flow once the construction of the second bridge, linking Bandar Putra in Tanjung Lumpur and Kuantan city centre, is completed.

Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said the construction of the dual carriageway bridge is expected to significantly reduce traffic congestion at the existing bridge.

"Upon completion of the 451m bridge, crossing Sungai Kuantan by Aug 2019, it will give an alternative route to motorists heading to Kuantan and Indera Mahkota from Tanjung Lumpur.

"This project is a priority for us as the existing bridge is unable to cope with the heavy flow of vehicles daily,” he said in his speech. The new bridge which cost RM181.24 million, will start at the intersection of Jalan Pintas Bukit Setongkol and Jalan Tanah Putih, passing Jalan Seri Kemuting 2 in Kuantan and end at Jalan Tanjung Lumpur. For the second bridge, Ahmad Zaki Resources Berhad (AZRB) has been selected as the contractor for the project.

Meanwhile, Tengku Mahkota of Pahang Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, in his speech before the groundbreaking ceremony, said the second bridge will spur Tanjung Lumpur's economic development. "This bridge will help to create economic opportunities and boosting housing industry in Tanjung Lumpur besides reduce traffic congestion," he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: George Kent (M) Bhd has received a letter of award (LOA) from the Public Works Department (JKR) to design and build a 150-bed Hospital in Tanjung Karang, Selangor, for RM277.2mil.

The company said the hospital was to be constructed on a 6.88ha site facing the main trunk road between Tanjung Karang and Kuala Selangor.

It will take 48 months to build and is scheduled for completion by November 2020.

In a statement on Tuesday, George Kent said this was the third hospital that the group was building on a turnkey basis for the Health Ministry.

It completed construction of phase one of the Kuala Lipis Hospital in 2012 and is now in the midst of constructing the second phase.

George Kent said the contract would add to the current order book of specialist projects and in line with the group’s strategy to actively bid for upcoming engineering construction projects.

“It is not expected to have a significant effect on the earnings of the group’s current financial year ending Jan 31, 2017, but, will contribute positively to future earnings over the duration of the contract,” it added. - Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) expects to reach three million e-Caruman users by year-end from the current one million, said Chief executive officer, Datuk Shahril Ridza Ridzuan.

The fund yesterday launched the e-Caruman Contribution Payment Transformation Programme to encourage all registered employers to optimise usage of the facility when remitting their monthly EPF contributions.

Shahril Ridza said the EPF rolled out the e-Caruman facility in January 2013 and had received overwhelming response as at September 2016, with more than 95 per cent of employers utilising the facility monthly.

“Since, they are already comfortable using the facility, we are now urging them to advance towards making payments using the FPX embedded in the e-Caruman system,” he added.

He told reporters this after the launch of the e-Caruman Contribution Payment Transformation Programme.

The programme is a joint collaboration between the EPF and Malaysian Electronic Clearing Corporation Sdn Bhd, a unit of Bank Negara Malaysia and operator, FPX.

The FPX is a convenient and secure online payment solution, allowing real-time debiting of customer’s internet banking accounts of multiple banks.

Shahril Ridza said the integration with FPX would allow employers to make online payments directly from the e-Caruman portal and mobile app at zero transactional charges.

He also said the programme was line with the EPF’s objective of reducing dependence on counter services, expedite mobile transactions and improve the overall experience in dealing with it.

“From January 2017, the EPF would be scrapping the manual system for contribution payment by employers, and they are urged to start using the e-Caruman facility.

“All employer transactions with the EPF would be done online and no longer using Form A (manual system for payment),” he added.

As at September 2016, 414,411 active employers had utilised the e-Caruman to submit their Form A online, and involving RM4.4 billion. However, only 20.2 per cent or 98,682 employers remitted their contributions of RM1.57 billion, online. — Bernama

Kuching Port Authority achieves ISO 9001: 2015 Standard
November 3, 2016, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/11...2015-standard/

KUCHING: Kuching Port Authority (KPA) was awarded the new ISO 9001:2015 Standard for management of containerized, dry bulk and general cargo handling operations by The International Certification Network (IQNet) and SIRIM QAS International Sdn Bhd on Sept 23 2016.

It marks KPA’s successful transition from the current ISO 9001:2008 to the new operation standard, which added risk-based approach.

Both Senari and Pending Terminals of KPA were accorded the quality operation standard at the same time.

KPA General Manager Rosli Saup yesterday said: “As a port, the award marks another milestone for KPA as a high performance trade gateway for Sarawak. It will ensure consistent high quality services being provided to the port users and logistics community in Kuching”.

Organisations with the old ISO 9001:2008 Standard are given three years from 2015 until 2018 to upgrade to the new ISO 9001:2015 Standard but KPA has taken the initiative to do so in 2015 when the new standard was first introduced.

“Thanks to the management and staff, we are the first port in Malaysia to be awarded the new ISO 9001: 2015 Standard,” said Rosli. In 1998, KPA also became the first port in Malaysia to be awarded the MS ISO 9002:1994 Quality Systems on the Management of Container Handling. Since then, the authority has expanded the operation standard to also cover dry bulk and general cargo handling under the new ISO9001:2015 Standard.

Penang Hospital upgrade will see 6-month closure of operation theatres
BY PHUAH KEN LIN - 4 NOVEMBER 2016 @ 12:15 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/11/1...ation-theatres

GEORGE TOWN: Ten operation theatres (OTs) at the Penang Hospital here will be closed for upgrading works beginning next month. Deputy Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya said the closure of the main premises will last six months.

However he assured the public that there will be no service interruptions to patients warded at the hospital, as six OTs at its day care centre, known as the Ambulatory Care Centre, will operate as per normal.

"The upgrade works are needed to improve conditions at the existing ten OTs. But there will be no interruption to services. "If necessary, the hospital will utilise OT services in other public hospitals, such as Seberang Jaya and Bukit Mertajam," Dr Hilmi said.

He was speaking to reporters after opening the World Heart Day at ACC today. Dr Hilmi added that the scope of works, at a cost of RM15.2 million, will include upgrades to the intensive care unit, air conditioning and electrical systems, and the hospital’s medical gas plant.

New RM385m immigration complex to be ready in 2018
Posted on 8 March 2016 - 08:57pm
http://m.thesundaily.my/node/353904



Kedah Education, Transportation and Non-Government Bodies Committee chairman Datuk Tajul Urus Mat Zain (C) looks at the plan while on a working visit to the site of the new Immigration, Customs and Quarantine Complex being built at Bukit Kayu Hitam on March 8, 2016. BERNAMA

BUKIT KAYU HITAM: The new Immigration, Customs and Quarantine Complex being built here at a cost of RM385 million is expected to be completed in 2018.

Kedah Education, Transportation and Non-Government Bodies Committee chairman Datuk Tajul Urus Mat Zain said today the complex, being built on 29.9ha, would ease congestion at the entry point.

The new complex would have six lanes for lorries, three to enter the country and three to exit, compared to only two at present, he said during a visit to the project site.

"There will be 20 lanes for cars, 10 to enter the country and 10 to exit, compared to only three to enter and three to exit at present," he said.


Tajul Urus said between 400 and 1,500 lorries used the entry/exit point daily, causing congestion of between two and five hours at any one time.

He said manual inspections were carried out now while the new complex would have a system to scan the goods in container lorries, thus reducing the inspection time as well as easing congestion. — Bernama

Cahya Mata opens Sabah and Sarawak’s first integrated cement plant


Curtis says the new plant will increase Cahya Mata Sarawak’s total annual rated cement production capacity by almost 60%.

Quote:
KUCHING: Cahya Mata Sarawak Bhd (CMSB), an investment holding company, on Tuesday opened its RM190mil integrated cement plant in Jalan Mambong, off Borneo Heights Road, here.

The new plant, CMSB’s third and largest cement grinding plant, is the first integrated cement plant in Sabah and Sarawak, and adjoins the group’s clinker plant.

CMSB group managing director Datuk Richard Curtis said the one million-tonne grinding plant incorporated state-of-the-art European technology comprising a ball mill (with a rated capacity of 150 tonnes/hour), a high efficiency separator, two units of 10,000 tonnes concrete silos, four-line bulk loaders and a 3,000 bag per hour packing and palletising machine.

“This third plant will increase CMSB’s total annual rated cement production capacity by almost 60% to 2.75 million tonnes, well above the current local demand of around 1.7 million-1.8 million tonnes.

“This will enable CMSB to meet the growing cement demand in Sarawak including from major projects such as Baleh Dam and Pan Borneo Highway and to have significant reserve production capacity to reduce the risk of supply disruptions in the state,” he said in his speech at the launch.

Curtis said CMSB’s investment in its cement division in the last 10 years had exceeded RM600mil which involved acquiring the clinker plant, setting up storage terminals in Miri and Sibu, general plant upgrades, three cement carrying barges and the new plant.

Second Resource Planning and Environment Minister Datuk Awang Tengah Ali Hassan, who is also Minister of Industrial and Entrepreneur Development, Trade and Investment, attended the launch on behalf of Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem.

At the launch, CMS Clinker Sdn Bhd also signed a memorandum of understanding with ZHA Environment Sdn Bhd to facilitate negotiations for the use of shredded rubber tyres as an alternate fuel in the production of clinker.

Meanwhile, CMSB group executive director Datuk Syed Ahmad Alwee Alsree presented cheques worth RM20,000 as financial aid to four schools, namely Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) St. Francis Xavier, Seratau; SK St Augustine, Mambong; SK Sitang Petag and SJK Chung Hua Batu 15. - Bernama

KL to start RM2.4b self-governing water storage management

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 8): The capital city will be starting a self-governing water storage management involving rainwater harvesting and digital water solution for long term water security, at a cost of RM2.4 billion.

ASI Air Simpanan Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Wan Abdul Halim Abdul Majid said the initiative will ultimately eliminate water shortages, contamination, mitigate flood and sustain supply of water in Kuala Lumpur. ASI Air Simpanan has been commissioned to undertake the implementation of the digital water solution.

"The whole project will cost about RM2.4 billion (to develop). We will build 1,200 tubes in the various areas in the city," he told a press briefing ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony of a self-governing water storage ceremony here today.

The 1,200 tubes on average are 45m to 60m in depth, which can store up to 859,200 cu m of water.
