Bringing Life to KTMB’s Strategic Asset: Impact Analysis

Bringing Life to KTMB’s Strategic Asset: Impact Analysis

Remanufacturing of KTMB’s ETS-04 Accident Train by SMH Rail Sdn Bhd

Leveraging on local capabilities to extend life of Government’s strategic asset

22nd February 2023 – TDA was present in a ceremony held at SMH Rail’s internationally certified rolling stock manufacturing plant in Rasa, Selangor to witness the completion of the remanufactured ETS-04 (SCS trains) to KTMB. KTMB was represented by its Chief Technical Officer, Ir. Ahmad Nizam. The remanufactured ETS-04 train will be sent to Batu Gajah depot for final testing and commissioning.

SMH Rail, Malaysia’s rolling stock manufacturer and engineering service provider for the global markets was awarded the contract by KTMB to remanufacture the accident ETS-04 train. The project of this nature was indeed challenging at the time when Covid-19 was at its peak with strict movement restrictions in place. Furthermore, supply chain system was severely affected, as delivery of critical parts and components from the various suppliers (local and overseas) were disrupted.

This project is technically complex, as it requires intensive technical knowledge on structural engineering wherein rigorous works were carried out in the design development and re-engineering to meet the stringent standard requirements of KTMB. TDA is pleased to note based on feedback from KTMB, SMH Rail during the course of the project has improvised and developed several assembly and testing procedures such as 3D modeling, cable testing protocols and redesigned critical parts and components that are obsolete. These value added services have undergone validations and certifications from professional entities. In addition, SMH Rail supported local vendors for the supply of the various components and services which increased local content.

The successful completion of this technically challenging remanufacturing project and the extensive technical collaboration between KTMB and SMH Rail marked an important milestone in the local rail industry. This collaboration is a testament to the technical competencies and capabilities of locally homegrown companies to undertake heavy repair and remanufacturing works of future rolling stock. The support rendered by local companies will be critical for the long-term maintenance of Government strategic asset.

SMH Rail was a beneficiary under TDA’s Industrial Collaboration Programme (ICP), which enabled SMH Rail to acquire technology transfer and enhancing technical know-how. Equipped with these competencies, SMH Rail successfully manufactured and delivered driverless metro cars under the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) projects for the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) and Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) lines. Both projects were delivered ahead of schedule resulting in cost savings for the government.

Successful collaborations with global OEMs in the likes of Siemens AG, Hyundai-Rotem Company and Wabtec for the manufacturing and assembly of metro trains and diesel electric locomotives has propelled SMH Rail into a leading rolling stock manufacturer in the region and enabled the company to secure global projects such as the Mumbai monorail in India and the World Bank funded project of diesel electric locomotives for Tanzania Railways.

MMEA-ICP Impact Analysis

MMEA-ICP Impact Analysis

MMEA-ICP increases local capability in the marine industry.

MMEA Industrial Collaboration Program (ICP) is a program under Procuring Agency Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA). The ICP Provider for this program is Destination Marine Service Sdn. Bhd. The ICP duration for this program is 66 Months. This program has been successful in addressing the government’s initiatives to enhance local capability in Ship Building and Ship Repair (SBSR).

Under this program, there are three projects which are, Collaboration with UTM MTC, Domestic Direct Investment, and Training & Human Capital Development. Through this program, the government has saved RM26 million in human capital development spending. UTM MTC can now perform ship model making and testing, as well as research and development in various areas of marine technology, through ICP. Through industrial training, three students from UiTM, IKBN, and RENACO acquire human capital development.

In addition, this program gives added value in upgrading UTM MTC capabilities to conduct R&D projects in various fields of marine technology. It also reduces the national cash outflow of RM13 million for 150 models. Other than that, the learning process has been reduced from 12 months to 6 months of training duration and saved RM63k in training costs. The DMSB’s investment in upgrading its facilities has created a business opportunity worth RM600 million for ten (10) years.

These initiatives can lead to increased competitiveness, cost savings, and economic growth in the marine industry.
