328,000 sq m Asia Aerospace City revealed



Atkins has released renderings of a 328,000 sq m development in Subang, Malaysia. Asia Aerospace City (AAC) is a research and development scheme with integrated office suites, professional event functions, academic facilities and residential areas.

The design takes its cue from the wings of an aeroplane and Atkins has used Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis to ensure that natural breezes stream throughout the communal outdoor areas. 36,000 sq m canopies provide shading for the external areas and have inbuilt photovoltaic panels to generate energy for the site.

MARA, the Malaysian government agency responsible for education and entrepreneurship, was appointed as lead consultant and masterplanner on the project. Atkins was responsible for the concept design and masterplan.

Atkins’ CEO for Asia Pacific Chris Birdsong commented: “This is an important project for Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Plan and Atkins in honoured to be working with MARA to deliver an outstanding academic and industry facility for the aerospace sector.

“We believe that it will play an important role in achieving the national vision of a self-sufficient industrialised Malaysia by 2020.” The intention is for the AAC to attract business worth $1.1bn to Malaysia by 2020.

The renderings show a fully-pedestrianised campus with key connections provided by a planned light railway station within walking distance and a flow of electric buses. These methods of public transportation will provide users with access to the centre of Kuala Lumpur and the nearby Subang Airport.

The key functions of the development are arranged in clusters; an academic node with the Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology and a 2,000-student capacity professional development centre; a research and training centre; an event node with a convention centre, business hotel and various event functions; and supporting infrastructure including F&B, leisure amenities and social spaces.

PETALING JAYA (June 15): Construction on the first phase of the aerospace hub Asia Aerospace City (AAC) will begin in the first quarter of 2016, in which its Subang Nexus is expected to complete in early 2018.

In a statement, MARA Aerospace & Technologies Sdn Bhd (M-AeroTech) said the AAC, an aerospace business hub that offers a complete business ecosystem for industry players in South East Asia, is currently developing its world-class infrastructure at its Subang nexus.

M-AeroTech is a wholly-owned Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) subsidiary that oversees the revenue generation of AAC through its six strategic business units.

One of the big project that will help Malaysia to achieve high income economy by 2020.

Malaysian aerospace industry is positioning itself to be the top aerospace training and education as well as the top aerospace manufacturing centre in South-East Asia by 2020 and 2025 respectively

Under Malaysian Aerospace Industry Blueprint 2015-2030, Malaysia is building an Asia Aerospace City (AAC). Asia Aerospace City (AAC) is a bold, strategic initiative to catapult Malaysia into a major role in the international aerospace industry.

AAC is proposed as one of the Entry Point Projects (EPP) under the Economic Transformation Program (ETP) of the Malaysian Government. ETP envisions transforming Malaysia into a high-income economy by year 2020.


Malaysia attracted a multitude of aerospace companies and activities, including Airbus, Rolls Royce, and Spirit Aerosystems.

Malaysia also work with Glyndwr University of Wrexham, Wales (UK) and University of Nottingham for this project.

Rolls-Royce seeks more local partners

25 SEPTEMBER 2015

KUALA LUMPUR: ROLLS-Royce Malaysia Sdn Bhd, which just forged partnership with the UMW Group, is keen to establish more manufacturing alliances with other local aerospace companies.

Malaysia had a proven track record in achieving aerospace excellence as well as other industries as it has mapped out the National Aerospace Blueprint (2016-2030) and the Economic Transformation Programme Entry Point Project Seven, anchored by the Asia Aerospace City, in which its focus is to facilitate original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Rolls-Royce.

Rolls-Royce Malaysia, which is a unit of British aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce Ltd, awarded UMW Group a RM830 million contract last month to manufacture and assemble aero engine fan cases.

MAHB to start work on Subang MRO centre next year
Thursday, October 26th, 2017 By AFIQ AZIZ / Pic By ISMAIL CHE RUS



Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will start the construction of the Subang maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centre next year to service all its customers.

MD Datuk Mohd Badlisham Ghazali said the airport operator has completed the land clearing of the 60- acre (24.28ha) site and the first phase of the project is expected to be completed in 2019.

He said the second phase of the Subang Aerotech Park is expected to start in the next two years. “We are seeing incoming demand from our current players as they want to grow bigger, thus creating demand for Tier-2 and Tier-3 players,” he said at a press conference in an update on (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) Aeropolis’ first phase completion — Air Cargo and Logistic — in Sepang yesterday.

Mohd Badlisham said the MAHB project is not part of Asia Aerospace City (AAC), which was proposed by Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara).

“We are building it on our own land and AAC will be our neighbour,” he said.


In June, MAHB signed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with Gyeongnam Technopark (GNTP) and Skyways Technics A/S to collaborate in the development of Subang Aerotech Park, which focuses on manufacturing (aerostructures, components, tools and jigs) and MRO for engine and components.

Skyways Technics is reported to be considering to set up a facility within the Subang Aerotech Park Phase 1.

The collaboration would also see the Subang Aerotech Park having spillover effects on the KLIA Aeropolis project.

The multibillion ringgit KLIA Aeropolis development would further enhance Malaysia’s position as a hub for the aviation sector.

The country’s largest operator of airports is devising the KLIA area, where the nation’s main airport sits, into a bustling aviation centre and drawing investment worth billions from various sectors, including logistics.

Meanwhile, the proposed RM1.7 billion AAC project under Mara has hit a snag, believed to be due to land ownership issue. The Asia Aerospace City was planned to combine education, aerospace services and living quarters.
