KUALA LUMPUR: The consortium of CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co Ltd, Siemens Ltd China and Tegap Dinamik Sdn Bhd has secured a RM1.56bil light rail vehicle work package under the Light Rail Transit (LRT3) project.

Prasarana Malaysia Bhd said on Wednesday the consortium would undertake from the designing to manufacturing and commissioning of 42 six-car LRVs for the LRT3 project – which will stretch 37km from Bandar Utama to Klang.

Prasarana’s group chairman Tan Sri Ismail Adam said the award marks a key milestone in the LRT3 project.

Speaking at the signing ceremony at Hilton Kuala Lumpur, he said: “The LRT3 project is officially underway and this award shows that our construction is gaining momentum. 

“With the three companies’ proven track record, experience and quality of delivery, I am confident that works will be completed within the time and cost.” 
CRRC Corporation Ltd chairman Liu Hualong said the consortium would provide the necessary experience and skill sets to ensure the smooth delivery of the works involved. 

The LRV work package is considered as one of the largest systems work packages offered by the LRT3 project. 

Five companies had pre-qualified for the tender in May 2016, with only CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co Ltd-Siemens Ltd China-Tegap Dinamik Sdn Bhd consortium submitting its bid when tenders closed in November 2016. 
Capable of carrying 1,271 passengers per LRV, these LRT3’s LRVs are Malaysia’s first six-car driverless trains.  Each of the LRV has a capacity equivalent to 28 units of single-deck buses. 
To ensure the comfort of passengers, the LRVs will be equipped with jerk limit controls, sound insulations and disabled friendly facilities. 
So far, 11 out of 59 LRT3 work packages have been awarded. The 59 work packages among which are 10 viaduct guideway and station packages, one underground works package and two train depot work packages.

Spanning  the LRT3 will provide accessibility to approximately 74,000 commuters daily in Klang, Shah Alam, and Petaling Jaya upon completion in 2020. 

In Sept 2015, Prasarana picked Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd and George Kent (M) Bhd as the project delivery partner (PDP) for the light rail transit three, which is estimated to cost RM9bil.

Prasarana Malaysia had then said the new LRT 3 line will link Bandar Utama to Shah Alam and Klang and it is expected to be completed by Aug 31, 2020.

The group said the RM9bil excludes the land acquisition costs.
