13 out of 36 Bumi contractors awarded PBHS jobs

… another 8 pending LOA

Tuesday, 22 August 2017, Kuching: LBU is set to achieve its target of securing at least 30% of Bumiputera contractors to participate in the construction of Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak.

As of July 25 this year, 13 out of the 36 Bumiputera sub-contractors have been awarded jobs by the respective 11 works package contractors. These jobs include civil works and supply of construction materials.

Among these 13 Bumiputera sub-contractors are Konsortium Kontraktor Bumi Kenyalang, Layun Enterprise and Konsortium Jajaran Borneo Sdn Bhd.

Currently, eight potential deals are being negotiated and the Letter of Award will be issued once the deals are sealed.

Another 15 Bumiputera sub-contractors meanwhile have been issued the Letter of Intent (LOI) to participate in the project.

Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof had previously revealed in Parliament that the potential subcontract value for Sarawak portion of Pan Borneo Highway to be awarded to Bumiputera contractors is estimated to be RM5.19 billion.

He said these Bumiputera subcontractors will be divided into three categories, namely domestic, nominated and designated subcontractors.

“Domestic subcontractors are estimated to be awarded RM3.51 billion, nominated subcontractors are expected to get RM977 million, while designated subcontractors would able to secure the remaining RM706 million,” he said.

Fadillah said the scope of these subcontracts includes work for construction of rest and recreation station, roadside stops, bus stops, bridges, and road signs.

Last week, a RM500-million financing facility was launched to facilitate credit guarantees and financing for Bumiputera companies undertaking sub-contract packages in the Pan Borneo Highway project.

This special arrangement involved the collaboration between four leading institutions; namely RHB Islamic Bank Berhad, SME Bank, Credit Guarantee Corporation (CGC) and Skim Jaminan Pembiayaan Perniagaan Berhad (SJPP) with the Bumiputera Agenda Steering Unit (Teraju).

Under this arrangement, SJPP and CGC would respectively provide government and credit guarantees to assist Bumiputera sub-contractors obtain commercial financing from SME Bank and RHB Islamic Bank Berhad.

April 1, 2017, Saturday

KUCHING: Two Sarawak Bumiputera contractors have been awarded jobs to construct 15km of road under the Serian Roundabout-Pantu Junction works package of the Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak development.

Konsortium Mahligai Budi Sdn Bhd and Konsortium Jajaran Borneo Sdn Bhd will each build a 7.5km stretch at the Pantu Section over a duration of 24 months beginning April this year under the main works package contractor Zecon Kimlun Consortium Sdn Bhd.

The two are the first Sarawak Bumiputera companies to secure letters of award (LoA) out of 35 Bumiputera contractors, which had already been given the letters of intent (LoI) to participate in the highway project under various works packages.

A simple ceremony was held yesterday to hand over the LoAs to both contractors at Zecon Kimlun Consortium Sdn Bhd office here.

Construction of the Serian Roundabout-Pantu Junction road involves 75.015km, of which 33.65km is under the Serian Section stretching from Serian to Balai Ringin. Another 41.365km is under the Pantu Section between Balai Ringin and Pantu Junction.

The Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak project was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in Bintulu on March 31, 2015.

Upon its completion in 2021, the highway from Telok Melano to Merapok will cover a total distance of 1,060km.

The mega development is set to be the transportation backbone of Sabah and Sarawak, and will play a major role in opening up economic corridors and opportunities in areas it transverses.

During Parliament’s ministerial question-and-answer session earlier this week, Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof disclosed that the potential sub-contract value of Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak to be awarded to Bumiputera contractors is estimated at RM5.19 billion.

These Bumiputera contractors would be divided into three categories – domestic, nominated and designated.

“Domestic sub-contractors are estimated to be awarded RM3.51 billion worth of contracts, nominated sub-contractors are expected to get RM977 million, while designated sub-contractors should be able to secure the remaining RM706 million,” he was quoted to have said.
