PELABUHAN KLANG, 22 Ogos (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata

pelancaran kapal dredger Inai Kenanga, kapal dredger terbesar di Asia dan ketiga

terbesar di dunia, memberi impak besar kepada ekonomi negara khususnya dalam

usaha mentransformasi negara menjadi negara maju.

Perdana menteri berkata inisiatif yang boleh dikategorikan sebagai projek

berimpak tinggi itu juga selaras dengan pelan transformasi ekonomi negara.

Beliau berkata sektor maritim khususnya yang melibatkan kerja

pembinaan kapal dan penyelenggaraan kapal adalah satu daripada industri

yang diberi keutamaan oleh kerajaan.

"Tentu sekali tidak terfikir dan terlintas bahawa sebuah syarikat tempatan

mampu melahirkan kapal yang diiktiraf sebagai terbesar di Asia dan ketiga

terbesar di dunia.

"Hari ini apa yang kita tak terfikir boleh menjadi realiti (apabila) sebuah

kapal yang begitu besar (dibina) dan menjadi kapal yang boleh menjadi

kebanggaan kita," katanya ketika berucap pada majlis pelancaran kapal berkenaan

di Pantai Acheh, Pulau Indah di sini hari ini.

NAJIB-KAPAL 2 PELABUHAN KLANG

Pelancaran kapal dregder Inai Kenanga itu disempurnakan isteri Perdana

Menteri Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Inai Kenanga dibina dengan kos hampir mencecah RM1 bilion dan mempunyai

harga pasaran sebanyak RM1.2 bilion. Ia dibina dalam tempoh 30 bulan dan akan

siap sepenuhnya pada penghujung tahun ini.

Kapal itu berfungsi seperti penyedut hampasan apabila pasir atau mendakan

beserta air laut disedut ke dalam takungan kapal menggunakan paip penyedut.

Kapal dredger yang dibina menggunakan tenaga kerja dan kepakaran tempatan

itu, mempunyai kapasiti membawa muatan dalam takungan sebanyak 33,335

meter persegi (m3) dan panjangnya mencecah 200 meter serta lebar 36 meter.

Kapal yang dibina oleh limbungan Selat Melaka Shipbuilding Corporation Sdn

Bhd (SMSCSB), sebuah anak syarikat milik penuh Inai Kiara Sdn Bhd (IKSB) itu,

boleh mencapai kelajuan 17 knot dan membuat kerja pengerukan sehingga kedalaman

45 meter.

NAJIB-KAPAL 3 (AKHIR) PELABUHAN KLANG

Najib berkata pembinaan kapal sebesar itu juga akan memberi peluang

pekerjaan kepada ramai anak muda, bukan sahaja untuk mengendalikannya malah

dapat memasarkan kepakaran mereka ke luar negara.

"Sudah tentu kapal yang sebegini besar memerlukan kepakaran yang tinggi,

Syarikat Inai Kiara melatih para pekerjanya dengan memberi latihan dalam

bidang yang memerlukan pengkhususan tinggi.

"Saya difahamkan bahawa pengkhususan seperti ini boleh memperoleh

pendapatan mencecah RM80,000 sebulan di pasaran dunia dan ada antara mereka

yang telahpun dilatih oleh syarikat ini, mendapat pekerjaan yang begitu

lumayan sekali di luar negara," katanya.

Beliau berkata kerja untuk mendalamkan kawasan pelabuhan dansebagainya dapat

dilakukan dengan kadar yang lebih efisien dengan menggunakan kapal bersaiz

besar.

"Dengan ini Syarikat Inai Kiara boleh mengambil bahagian dalam proses

''bidding'' di peringkat antarabangsa dengan menawarkan harga yang lebih

kompetitif lagi dan saya percaya masa depan syarkat ini amat baik sekali,"

katanya.
