Smart infrastructure key to Serba Dinamik’s Pengerang projects
24 Sep 2021
Organisational plasticity has always been the key “digital trait” of Serba Dinamik Group Bhd as it once again shows its capability in adapting to changes and innovating with speed.
On top of adjusting to the challenges of Covid-19, Serba Dinamik has moved up a notch with the rapid development of Smart Pengerang Eco-Industrial Park (Smart PeIP) and Pengerang International Commercial Centre (PICC) in Johor.
Serba Dinamik, a total technical engineering and commercial services provider, said it has now established a new ecosystem of infrastructure, facilities and providers of products and services housed within one location.
PeIP is poised to become a one-stop-centre to meet the needs for maintenance of plant and machinery.
It consists of Malaysia’s first smart MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) global centre of excellence, plant turnaround village, IRM (inspection, repair and maintenance) global centre, technical and vocational education and training city and smart logistics hub.
PICC, meanwhile, is incorporated to support PeIP with commercial, hospitality and residential properties along with other key facilities and amenities.
Serba Dinamik said in future proofing the productivity and sustainability of both PeIP and PICC as an industrial park and a commercial centre, the company was developing and deploying several key smart infrastructure.
The smart infrastructure planned for PeIP and PICC revolves around environment sustainability and smart city framework to create a smart entrepreneur community.
Mainly supported by Serba Dinamik’s subsidiary Serba Dinamik IT Solutions Sdn Bhd, the smart infrastructure encompasses smart mobility systems, smart warehouse technology, smart resident, automated surveillance system, eco-waste management, green lung and digital mall, among others.
“As a Malaysian-owned MRO centre, PeIP can enable the development of Malaysian companies to compete with international MRO players while pushing for local upskilling and job creation.
“Supported by Serba Dinamik’s 25 years of experience in the provision of MRO services and holistic vendor development programme, local vendors participating in PeIP are set for an immediate head-start to engage in MRO activities in the region,” the company said.
Tapping into Serba Dinamik’s global network and operations in Asia, Middle East, the UK and Africa, PeIP and PICC are well-equipped to attract foreign direct investments.
This, Serba Dinamik said, was based on opportunities from Johor’s Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex which includes Petronas’ PIC, Johor’s power generation industry as well as Singapore’s oil and gas, power generation and marine industries.
“The strategic location and multi-accessibility of PeIP also opens an opportunity for an export base to be established for manufactured parts, components and fabrication,” it added.
Currently progressing well in their development phase, PeIP and PICC have a combined gross development value of RM1.9 billion and gross development cost of RM1.7 billion.
This in turn could boost employment prospect in Johor as well as contribute positively to Malaysia’s gross domestic product growth, said Serba Dinamik.
Both projects are developed on 27.46 hectares with a gross floor area of 4.23 million sq ft and net floor area of 2.36 million sq ft.
Based on recent forecast, PeIP and PICC stand to create at least 6,000 new high-skilled and in-demand jobs for Malaysians.
“With the global Covid-19 pandemic having massively ushered the maturity of Industrial 4.0 which currently prove to be a necessity over luxury especially in MRO industry, the Smart PeIP and PICC can serve as the right catapult to push Malaysia into the lead as a high-tech global MRO service provider,” Serba Dinamik said.
