Kelana Jeya Extension Line in partnership with COLAS RAIL ASIA
- This project, which began in late 2013, involves GATES PCM Construction Ltd welding rails (LWR) for the Kelana Jeya Extension Line. The project serves as the company’s first foray into a large regional market like Malaysia and is a significant first step in the regional expansion of the company.
- The project also presents the local railway company an opportunity to work with yet another international railway giant, COLAS RAIL ASIA: Asian branch of Europe’s leading railway infrastructure providers, COLAS RAIL. In the lead up to this project, GATES PCM Construction Ltd became the first local railway company to invest over US$1 million on machinery such as the Flash Butt Welding machine. While the traditional Thermite Welding Process allowed for six men to produce six welds daily, the modern Flash Butt Welding Machine allows for a group of 10 men to produce over 40 welds per day. This has enhanced the company’s productivity exponentially.
