DNeX wins Indonesia marine cable job
PETALING JAYA: Dagang NeXchange Bhd (DNeX), through subsidiary DNeX Telco Services Sdn Bhd, has been awarded a sub-contract of marine fibre optic cable installation for Telkom Infra in Indonesia valued at US$3.6mil.
The project was awarded by Pt Bina Nusantara Perkasa, the consortium company that serves as the main contractor of the project.
Under the project, DNeX in a statement said that it would be responsible for the design, construction and installation of about 700 kilometres of fibre optic installation for two lines, namely, Matanusa and SMPCS Patara as part of the Indonesia Global Gateway Cable System. DNeX will be working with Kokusai Cable Ship Co Ltd of Japan in this project.
The project, which will commence in September, is expected to be completed in 131 days.
DNeX had earlier yesterday signed an agreement for the project with Pt Bina Nusantara Perkasa in Jakarta, Indonesia.
“We are truly excited to be given the opportunity to undertake the implementation of marine fibre optic cable installation in Indonesia. Based on our experience in implementing large-scale initiatives, we are confident of delivering the set requirements of this project,” said executive deputy chairman Datuk Samsul Husin in the statement.
He said the project was a strategic expansion of the company’s IT and e-Services offerings, and was achieved through the sound technical knowhow of DNeX that has always been driven by technology.
“While this is a new line of business contribution to us, we are really leveraging on the engineering and telecommunications skill sets already embedded in the company from its past experience,” he added.
