Malaysia ranks fifth in Asia for digital readiness
By Bernama - December 13, 2018 @ 9:58pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia ranked fifth among top 10 developing economies in Asia for its readiness to support online shopping, based on the 2018 United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Business to Consumer (B2C) e-commerce index.

A report on the B2C E-Commerce Index by UNCTAD, released on Dec 10, said Malaysia has had strong B2C sales contribution to its gross domestic product (GDP) since 2016 and was among the top five countries including United Kingdom, China, Ireland and Thailand.

Malaysia also improved its overall ranking, among developing economies, to 34th placing from 39th last year, ahead of Thailand (43), Turkey (47), Iran (49), Chile (50) and Saudi Arabia (52).

The index was evaluated, among others, from the share of individuals using the Internet, share of individuals with an account, secure Internet servers (normalise) and UPU postal reliability score.

B2C sales accounted for 6.4 per cent of Malaysia’s GDP in 2016.

“This is because the government partnered Chinese e-commerce company, Alibaba, to establish a dedicated e-commerce technology park, Digital Free Trade Zone, the first such facility in South East Asia,” it said, adding that the digital readiness had attracted foreign direct investments in the B2C sector.

“And, so far, Alibaba has invested US$100 million in Malaysia.-- Bernama

UPDATE 2018: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB)’s Large Scale Solar (LSS) project, here, is now connected to the national grid. TNB said work was progressing well for the solar plant to generate its full capacity of 50 megawatt (MW) before year-end. The plant, with 230,000 solar panels and 10 km of 132kV power and fiber optic underground cable, is Malaysia’s first largest LSS project to date.

RAPID to boost Asia's refining capacity growth in 2019
By ZARINA ZAKARIAH - February 8, 2019 @ 8:53pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: With the start-up of the Petronas' Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Pengerang around the corner, Asia’s refining capacity growth will experience a boost in 2019, says S&P Global Platts.

The start-up of the 300,000 barrels refining capacity per day project will also increase Saudi crude inflows to the region and add to the supply of refined petroleum products.

This will underscore the shift of global refining capacity growth to Asia where the bulk of the demand growth is concentrated.

The refinery, located in the southern state of Johor, has fired up its crude distillation unit and is expected to be ready for commercial operations by the fourth quarter of 2019.

The facility will produce refined products including gasoline and diesel that meet Euro 5 fuel specifications and provide feedstock for the integrated petrochemicals complex with a capacity of 3.3 million metric tonne per year.

S&P Global Platts, an energy and commodities information source also noted while China continues to dominate Asian refining capacity growth, Southeast Asian capacity additions this year are significant, mainly from RAPID and Brunei’s Hengyi refinery in the second half of 2019.

Hengyi has a capacity of refining 160,000 barrels per day.

S&P Global Platts in its latest Asia Pacific Oil Market Forecast report, further noted that the project is designed to meet both domestic fuel demand in Malaysia and export surplus volumes although currently, domestic fuel demand is likely to be affected by lukewarm economic growth.

“PIC will add to refined product supply at a time when higher Chinese exports will add to Asia’s diesel surplus and pressure refinery margins, at least until the impact of the International Maritime Organisation 2020 (IMO 2020) regulations start to tighten the market,” the firm said.

Asian refining margins are expected to average $4.40 a barrel in 2019, up from $3.30 a barrel in 2018, according to Platts Analytics, which expects Asian product markets to tighten in the second quarter due to heavier refinery turnarounds.

S&P Global said RAPID is also key to Saudi Aramco’s marketing strategy as it will supply half of the refinery’s crude feedstock, with the option of increasing it to 70 per cent while Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) will supply the natural gas, power and other utilities needed to run the plant.

It also noted that Aramco has been chasing markets in the east as key consumers like the US have boosted domestic production.

Touching on crude distillation unit, the firm said global refiners will add 1.87 million barrels of CDU

per day capacity in 2019 and the Asia Pacific region will account for about 61 per cent of those additions, taking total Asian CDU capacity to over 37 million barrels per day by the end of this year.

As a result, Asia’s share of global CDU capacity is expected to rise to 37 per cent in 2019, said Platts Analytics.

The jointly held Saudi Aramco-Petronas US$27-28 billion Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) is preparing for official startup of RAPID.

Its mechanical completion was achieved on November 29, 2018 and all critical units under contractor Petrofac Ltd’s scope have now started commissioning activities in advance of the fire up of the refinery’s crude distillation unit later this month.

The delivery of the first cargo of 2 million barrels of crude supplied by Petronas and Aramco to the site was done in September 2018, to be used for commissioning and testing activities at the refinery in October last year.

Petronas ventures into electric vehicle market with e-fluids
By NST Business - March 6, 2019 @ 3:19pm



PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI) Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Giuseppe D’Arrigo with PLI Chief Technology Officer, Eric Holthusen launching PETRONAS’ first EV fluid, PETRONAS iona at the Geneva International Motor Show

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Nasional Bhd has ventured into the electric vehicle market with a range of e-fluids for passenger cars.

The national oil company, through unit Petronas Lubricants International (PLI), unveiled Petronas iona range of e-fluids at the Geneva International Motor Show 2019.

The move was part of its pledge to address the climate challenge and lower CO2 emissions with its fluid technology, Petronas said in a statement today.

“Petronas iona is PLI’s response to the ever-changing trends in mobility,” it added.

Petronas said an industry-wide study would be commissioned to identify the challenges and future opportunities surrounding fluid technology and innovation towards advancing electric vehicle performance.

The findings would be shared with key partners at an EV Fluid Symposium hosted by PLI later thsi year, it added.

“The world we live in today is placing more and more emphasis on environmental responsibility and at Petronas, so are we. In the automotive sector, OEMs now have to adhere to increasing regulations on carbon emissions reduction,” said managing director and group chief executive officer Giuseppe D’Arrigo.

The range of fluids comprises thermal battery fluid for optimised and efficient delivery of electrical energy, Petronas iona Integra for friction management of the integrated driveline system and Petronas iona Glide next-generation bearing greases for a quieter ride and longer lasting performance and durability.

Last year, PLI pledged 75 per cent of its research and technology investment towards innovations that help reduce CO2 emissions.

AirAsia launches venture capital fund in US to back startups in Southeast Asia
By Reuters - March 5, 2019 @ 6:32am



AirAsia’s Deputy Group CEO Aireen Omar says the airline groups has initially allocated US$10m for the fund. - NSTP/HALIMATON SAADIAH SULAIMAN

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia Group said on Monday it was launching a venture capital fund in the United States to invest in startups seeking to enter or expand in Southeast Asia.

The fund, called RedBeat Capital, will focus on post-seed-stage startups in travel and lifestyle, financial technology, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

AirAsia is partnering with San Francisco-based 500 Startups, which invests in young fast-growing companies. RedBeat Capital will have a base in San Francisco and access to 500 Startups’ deal flow, AirAsia said.

The airline group has initially allocated about US$10 million, and the fund has already invested in a couple of companies, Aireen Omar, deputy chief executive, told Reuters.

AirAsia, which pioneered budget air travel in Asia, is broadening its reach to include a payments company, logistics, food and beverages brands and a loyalty programme.

A year ago, it placed these lifestyle assets including the BIG Loyalty scheme and a Wi-Fi service, in which it typically has stakes of 80-100 percent, under RedBeat Ventures. The new fund RedBeat Capital will house smaller investments in startups of anything up to around 20 percent, Omar said.

Together, these could be listed separately in future.

“We don’t have a timeline (for a listing) yet because our focus is to build a business fast,” she said in an interview.

AirAsia has been trying to re-invent itself as a travel and technology firm to exploit data and offset cyclical volatility in airline earnings.

The group last week posted a fourth-quarter net loss, its first quarterly loss in over three years, citing higher fuel prices and lease costs. Non-flying ancillary revenues currently make up about 20 percent of group revenue.

The digital drive can improve ancillary revenues by using machine learning to better understand consumer trends, Omar said, adding that investments via the new fund should also help the core business.

“I would imagine that with what we are building here, the ancillary part will be increasing to more than 20 percent – it is not impossible for it to reach 50 percent at some point in the future,” Omar said.

Southeast Asia, with a young population and more internet users than the United States, but relatively little exposure in Silicon Valley so far, is among the fastest-growing tech markets, according to 500 Startups.

“We have noticed our own partners turning an eye towards Southeast Asia. It seems like a greenfield,” the startup accelerator’s chief executive Christine Tsai told Reuters.

Some network carriers such as Singapore Airlines are also ramping up investments in digital technology. --Reuters

20 new infrastructure projects to be implemented this year

KUALA LUMPUR: The Works Ministry will implement 20 new infrastructure projects worth RM5.26 billion this year that will help stimulate the country's economy.

Minister Baru Bian said they include the mega projects that had been long planned, such as the Central Spine Road (CSR), the Pan Borneo Highway, and the Sarawak-Sabah link road projects.

“I believe these infrastructure projects will effectively help stimulate the country's economy…we will also try to renegotiate some of the planned projects that have yet to take off.

“We have to be careful because once signed, we cannot amend the contract,” he told Bernama after the recording session of the Bernama News Channel's (BNC) Property Hot Seat programme here today.

The minister said road access linking rural and urban areas, especially in Sabah and Sarawak, would boost the tourism industry and help generate income for the locals.

“In Sarawak, for example, we have mountains like Mount Murud and Mount Mulu that could help draw more tourists. If it is made accessible with good infrastructure, it will definitely attract more tourist arrivals,” he said.

Putrajaya and Cyberjaya set to become 5G test bed in April
By Farah Adilla - March 4, 2019 @ 12:54pm
Quote:
CYBERJAYA: Putrajaya and Cyberjaya are set to become the test bed in showcasing the 5G technology application in April, said Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo.

“While we are developing the infrastructure that is of high quality and affordable, the country will start a testbed in April where we will showcase Putrajaya and Cyberjaya as two locations initiating the 5G technology.

“I will be making announcement on the details soon,” he told reporters on the sidelines of Cyberjaya Infra Conference and Exhibition, here, today.

Gobind said there are also future plans to increase these testbedding activities, which will require the participation of both public and private sector players.

"Among them are MDEC, which continues to build enabling ecosystems in championing Malaysia’s digital economy agenda; and Futurise, whose National Regulatory Sandbox enables innovation and adaptive policy making to accelerate lab-to-market adoption for local technology solutions.

"All of these advancements are, again, only possible with a robust broadband network and reliable infrastructure,” he said.

On security concern raised recently by the prime minister’s adviser Tun Daim Zainuddin, Gobind said the government cannot ignore the fact that the world is moving towards 5G.

“This is something that recognised by countries all over the world. in addition, we also recognise that 5G has a lot more to offer in terms of services. We have latency and speed problem that we had dealt with.

“We have to look at this new application that will be created in the future - completely if not substantially, reliant to this technology. This is something that we need to embrace, think carefully, adopt as far as we possibly can,” he said.

Having said that, Gobind said security concern are at top most of the government’s consideration.

“This is the reason why MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) is in the process of doing the study and that report has yet to come to me.

“We are concern. We want to provide infrastructure that is accessible, of high quality, at reasonable cost, but at the same time, we want to provide an infrastructure that is secure.

“The government is looking into this seriously, and when I have the information with me through reports prepared by necessary authorities, a decision will be made and we will then make an announcement,” he said.

1,000MW Manjung 4 Ultrasupercritical Power Plant

Manjung 4: Powering Malaysia With Clean Coal Technology
https://www.ge.com/reports/manjung-4...al-technology/


http://www.tnbfuel.com/index.php/our...nb-janamanjung

GE Power is currently leading the way in Southeast Asia, following the successful handing over of the 1,000MW Manjung 4 Ultrasupercritical Power Plant to TNB Janamanjung recently. Not only is Manjung 4 Malaysia’s – and the region’s – single largest ultrasupercritical unit. It is also Southeast Asia’s most efficient coal-based plant achieving almost 40% efficiency rate, surpassing the global average of 33%.

Meanwhile, Manjung 4’s cutting-edge environmental controls enable it to generate dependable power with much lower emissions than earlier plants (Manjung 1, 2 and 3), at levels which fully comply with World Bank standards. For instance, with GE’s Seawater Flue Gas Desulfurisation (FGD) system, Manjung 4 significantly reduces SO2 emissions to that of 200mg/Nm3, which is more than 3x below the World Bank requirements of 750mg/Nm3.

With these technologies, it comes as no surprise that this jewel of coal power plants in Asia has bagged the Gold Award under the ”Coal Power Project of the Year” category at the Asian Power Awards 2015. It has since exceeded performance projections to achieve 94.5% availability upon commencing operations in that same year, which allowed TNB Janamanjung to deliver full base load to the grid. Today, Manjung 4 is capable of powering almost two million households and, together with Manjung 1, 2 and 3, contribute more than 20% of the national power network in Peninsula Malaysia.

Langat Sewerage Project
http://www.langatsp.com/



Langat Sewerage Project is one of the Greater Kuala Lumpur anchored project under Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources with Jabatan Perkhidmatan Pembetungan (JPP) as the implementing agency managed by Gabungan AJP-MFA as the project’s PMC, and MMC Pembetungan Langat Sdn Bhd as the main contractor. The facility will be able to accommodate an inflow of 920,000 population equivalent (PE). The catchment area is 60.9 sq km stretching from Cheras to Kajang. Phasing out of 164 localised STP in various housing areas such as Cheras Batu 11, Desa Baiduri, Cheras Jaya, Kajang 1 and Kajang 3 including Kajang Prison. The construction will begin with laying approximately 105 km of sewage piping network. Through pipe-jacking method with pipe depth that varies from 25m deep underground, it will connect 1174 manholes that integrate 164 small inefficient multipoint sewage treatment plants that will be directly linked into one centralised location. This will immediately reduce multipoint of pollutant discharge into the Langat River.

The project involves constructing a Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant (CSTP) with a capacity of 920,000 population equivalents — equivalent to an average flow of 207,000 cu m per day — and a sew- erage pipe network approximately 105km in length.

The high-impact project, covering a catchment area stretching from Batu 11 Cheras to Kajang, allows visitors to appreciate the technology at work. It incorporates top-of-the-class knowledge of sewage treatment plant initiatives undertaken at the Tokyo Metropolitan Sewerage Service in Japan.

SHANGHAI (April 2): State-owned Petroliam Nasional Bhd or Petronas expects to have its second floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Malaysia ready by the first quarter of next year, its chief executive Wan Zulkiflee told the LNG2019 conference in Shanghai on Tuesday.

Malaysia had said in October last year that the facility would be operational by July 2020.

Petronas' first floating LNG (PFLNG) Satu is now moored in the Kebabangan cluster field, some 90 km (56 miles) northwest of the Sabah state capital city of Kota Kinabalu, the company had said last month.

BEIJING: G3 Global Bhd has entered into a strategic collaboration with two Chinese companies to establish the first artificial intelligence (AI) park in Malaysia.

The collaboration between G3 Global Bhd and China’s SenseTime Group and China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) was agreed upon during Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s visit to SenseTime’s Beijing office today.

“The park will serve as the platform for the development of AI solutions in the areas of computer vision, speech recognition, natural language and humanoid/robotics.

“Ultimately, the park will be the regional epicentre for the development of technology and talent, data management, research and development and commercial ecosystem,” said SenseTime in a statement released after the Prime Minister’s visit here today.

The statement did not provide further details about the park.

In this collaboration, G3 Global, among others, will be involved in facilitating and coordinating the establishment of the AI park, while SenseTime will build the supercomputing and AI platforms for research and cloud services.

Meanwhile, CHEC will provide its expertise in infrastructure engineering and construction services.

SenseTime founder Prof Xiao’ou Tang said the company was looking forward to work together with the Malaysian government, academia and business sector to bring its technological expertise and experience to Malaysia.

G3 Global executive chairman Wan Khalik Wan Muhammad said with the establishment of the AI park, Malaysia would be a step closer in realising the vision to be ranked within the top 30 of the Global Innovation Index by 2025.

Earlier, the Prime Minister and his delegation, which included several cabinet ministers, toured SenseTime’s AI demonstration area where they received a first-hand experience of the latest AI technologies and its application in safe city solutions, autonomous-driving technology, remote sensing and other technologies.

Dr Mahathir is in Beijing for a five-day working visit to the 2nd Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which opens today.

He will return to Malaysia on Sunday.

CYBERJAYA (April 29): Telekom Malaysia Bhd’s (TM) enterprise and public sector business solutions arm TM One, today unveiled its new 90,000 square feet Klang Valley Core Data Centre (KVDC).

TM One chief executive officer Azizi A Hadi said the facility, which was completed in January, is now serving five customers with 30% of its capacity taken up.

“We are fully aware that businesses nowadays are becoming increasingly dynamic and aggressively adopting digital in their operations,” Azizi said at a media briefing today.

“Our state-of-the-art core data centres are purposely designed to fulfill the hosting, cloud and Internet of Things (loT) requirements of business and enterprise customers, as well as the public sector, towards facilitating their digital transformation journey,” he said.

“This KVDC is certified by the Uptime Institute as Tier III in design and in constructed facility, apart from being certified as Threat, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment (TVRA), ISO 27001 and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCl-DSS) compliant.

“These certifications demonstrate TM One’s unparalleled service quality and uncompromised security standards that will enable us to enhance our customers’ business productivity and market competitiveness,” he added.

To date, TM One has 12 data centres located across Malaysia, Hong Kong and the US.

Azizi said the KVDC, along with TM One’s Iskandar Puteri Core Data Centre (IPDC) in Johor, is part of the group’s Twin Core Data Centre project.

IPDC was completed in November 2017.

Through the Twin Core Data Centre, Azizi said TM One is positioning itself as a comprehensive information and communication technology (ICT) services provider, delivering value added services, additional to the data centre facility service.

Azizi also said the KVDC is a carrier-neutral and green data centre that serves as a regional hub in providing high value managed services, including cloud computing, virtualisation, workspace and collaboration services, as well as high-speed broadband connectivity to cater for enterprise and business customers in Malaysia and the Asean region.

KUALA LUMPUR (April 29): Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has inked a three-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with national applied research and development (R&D) agency MIMOS Bhd for the adoption of advanced technologies to enhance the maintenance of Malaysian airports.

In a statement today, the two parties announced they entered into the MoU on April 23, with the memorandum serving as a strategic technology-driven commitment in providing technical advisory services for the development of a unified Internet of Things (IoT) technology platform for MAHB.

The platform will have machine learning capabilities for predictive maintenance for MAHB's airports and systems, and its development is in line with the National IoT Strategic Roadmap.

MAHB group chief executive officer (CEO) Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin said the group is looking to improve operational efficiency and service quality at its airports in its bid to become a service leader.

"While a superior service culture is core to this transformation, another intrinsic element would be the spirit of innovation. Innovation is the cornerstone to our organisation's sustained growth and prosperity," Raja Azmi added.

Meanwhile, MIMOS chief technology officer Thillai Raj said the R&D centre would be working with MAHB in supporting the Industry4WRD national policy on Industry 4.0 by providing expertise in relevant technologies to the airport operator as well as focusing on enhancing MAHB's predictive maintenance capabilities.

"To improve overall operational efficiency and enhance airport experience, it is crucial to employ technologies that are able to detect operational anomalies. Combining the power of IoT, machine-learned model and edge computing, our solutions will strengthen MAHB's predictive maintenance capabilities, hence support in more precise decision-making," said Thillai.

Present at the MoU signing ceremony on April 23 were MAHB chairman Tan Sri Zainun Ali, Raja Azmi, MIMOS interim president and CEO Emelia Matrahah and MAHB information technology general manager Lee Yiang Ming.

As of 3:31pm, shares in MAHB rose 0.9% or seven sen to RM7.56, with 841,700 shares traded, giving it a market capitalisation of RM12.54 billion.

UPM, ANGKASA to launch research study to ISS tomorrow
By NST Online - April 30, 2019 @ 5:06pm
Quote:
BANTING: A research study undertaken by researchers from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and the National Space Agency of Malaysia (ANGKASA) will be launched to International Space Station (ISS) tomorrow.

The research that started two years ago titled ‘Smart Optical Fibres for Passive Dosimetry in Space’ (SOFPADS) would be launched via SpaceX Dragon CRS-17 cargo spacecraft aboard the Falcon-9 rocket from the US Air Force Base in Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 3.59am (EDA) or 3.59pm Malaysia time.

SOFPADS is a passive dosimeter created using optic fibres and it consists of two samples, namely E-SOFPADS and I-SOFPADS, said ANGKASA in a statement posted on its Twitter account today.

These samples would be placed at ISS to measure the radiation in outer space as an initial step to see the reaction of optic fibres to radiation in microgravity environment. Potentially, it could be used as a radiation ray detector in outer space. Normally, it’s used to monitor the level of radiation received by the astronauts at the ISS.

E-SOFPADS would be exposed to radiation in outer space outside the KIBO (a Japanese science module for ISS) module using ‘Exposed Experiment Handrail Attachment Mechanism’ (ExHAM) while I-SOFPADS would be exposed to radiation ray inside the KIBO module at ISS.

"Both samples would return to Earth upon completion of radiation exposure in zero gravity for 360 days and 300 days respectively," the statement said.

Public can check for launch details at https://www.nasa.gov/launchschedule/ and watch the launch live via https://www.nasa.gov/nasalive.
