NCT Group, Smartsel & Mikro to drive NSIP capabilities

03 May 2024

NCT Group of Companies has teamed up with Smartsel Sdn Bhd and Mikro Sdn Bhd to drive the capabilities of the NCT Smart Industrial Park (NSIP).

The partnership also aims to introduce advanced sustainability practices to positively impact its carbon footprint.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Smartsel, a licenced provider of network facilities and services, will focus on the integration of 4G and 5G networks to drive telecommunications and digital operations at the NSIP, while simultaneously bolster the connectivity infrastructure within Selangor. 

The collaboration with Mikro will see an emphasis on ensuring superior quality components are utilised in electrical distribution systems to optimise NSIP’s energy management and operational safety.

“The MOUs are pivotal to creating a sustainable and cutting-edge foundation for the telecommunications and industrial infrastructure at NSIP, on track to be the nation’s first net-zero emission industrial park by 2050,” NCT founder and group managing director Datuk Seri Yap Ngan Choy.

“Strategic investment decisions and multistakeholder collaborations are necessary to propel growth and economic development. These MOUs mark a transformative phase for NSIP, further elevating its value and establishing it as a key component in Selangor’s progress as a hub of innovation and sustainability with robust 4G and 5G networks in place. 

For the process of 4G and 5G network deployment, Smartsel will facilitate the necessary local authority approvals by working closely with various stakeholders and state authorities. 

Khairul Azmi Misran, director of Smartsel, said it shares NCT Group’s commitment to harnessing the power of connectivity to boost the country’s digital economy, while realising the digital potential of its managed industrial park. 

“By seamlessly deploying faster connectivity at NSIP, this will drive economic and technological advancements.”

Mikro’s expertise, meanwhile, will be fundamental to NSIP’s carbon footprint reduction,

Mikro chief executive officer Syed Mohd Hafiz said the collaboration allows for an integration of its advanced X-series products with its powerful Mikrosafe app.

This will enhance both safety and energy efficiency in Malaysia’s electricity distribution systems, setting a new benchmark for industrial operations in Malaysia, he added.

NSIP is located within the Integrated Development Region in South Selangor.

The state has achieved more than 96 per cent of 5G network coverage as of February this year.
