Tender called to appoint KL-S’pore rail project’s delivery partner

MyHSR Corp chief executive officer Mohd Nur Ismal Kamal

KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd will call for a tender to appoint the project delivery partner (PDP) for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project on Wednesday.

The Ministry of Finance Inc unit said in a statement that the PDP would be responsible to develop the detailed design for the infrastructure works and construct these works on budget and on time. 

This infrastructure design covers the station and the alignment structures  - bridges, tunnels and embankments - within Malaysia.

In addition, the PDP must assist with interface management, land acquisition processes and stakeholder engagement activities.

MyHSR Corp said the PDP and upcoming assets company (AssetsCo) tenders are two major procurement exercises at the current stage of the KL-Singapore HSR project.

While the PDP tender focuses on the civil infrastructure portion, the AssetsCo tender, expected to be launched by end of this year, focuses on systems and trains. Both tenders are expected to be completed in 2018.

MyHSR Corp chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal was previously reported as saying that the tender to set up AssetsCo was likely to be called in mid-December.

“Since the signing of the bilateral agreement in December 2016, the KL-Singapore HSR project has progressed rapidly. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak recently unveiled the concept designs for the seven HSR stations in Malaysia, and MyHSR Corp is currently in the midst of its public inspection exercise, which lasts for three months from Nov 1, 2017 until Jan 31, 2018,” MyHSR said.

It added that the environmental impact assessment  study for the project was underway.

Mohd Nur Ismal said with the appointment of the PDP, the civil works for the Malaysian infrastructure portion of the KL-Singapore HSR project would start in earnest. 

This tender is open to all interested parties with experience in the design, construction and project management of railway infrastructure.
