October 22, 2015

This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will hosting the visit on Wednesday the 28th Oct, 2015.

Gading Kencana Sdn Bhd has successfully commissioned a 8-MW solar farm on a 6.86 hectar land in Bemban, Melaka with an investment cost of  RM 86-million. The solar farm has a total output of 10,120 MWh annually. It is enough to power some 1,800 local households. The electricity produced is being purchased by  Tenaga Nasional Bhd at 80 cents per kilowatt hour of electricity under the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme managed by Sustainable Energy Development Authority Malaysia (SEDA) and the Energy Commission.

(revised) IEM Shout Out – One-Day Workshop on Rock Blasting and Explosive Engineering

October 13, 2015

This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will hosting the above seminar on Wednesday the 15th Oct, 2015 by Mr. Mohamad Razif Kemat, Mr. Yap Hong Hor, and Ir. Look Keman Sahari.

This Workshop will be a series of Courses on the Application of Explosives in mining, quarrying and Construction industries tailored to the engineers and other professionals such as Safety personnel who need to know how explosives are used safely and efficiently in rock blasting operation, mining, quarrying, and construction industries.

The Workshop will introduce the various types of explosives used in the commercial application and suitability of particular explosives for a particular application. The right choice of an initiation system, for example, will determine the degree of disturbance to the public and the potential complaints from them which may cause delays in a blasting project. This may also help the project manager to understand the proposal made by the consulting engineer or blasting engineer for a particular blasting project instead of just depend on blasting contractor’s proposal which purely focus on the cheapest costs.
The Workshop is also a good introduction to those who wish to learn about the productive use of explosives in our life. It includes lectures and demonstration of explosive products (dummy samples) used in our industries.As a result of fast pace development housing, business centres, factories etc are being built near existing structures. Development within city areas for examples requires firm foundation below the surface where underground space are also used as car parks, LRT stations, bus station etc. Excavation of underground space requires the removal of soil and also rocks. In both Selangor and Penang Island the need for building new houses for expanding population requires the cutting and levelling of hilly areas. All these require the use of explosives.

IEM Shout Out – 1 Day Seminar on Construction Blasting: Current Issues

May 20, 2014

This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will hosting the above seminar on Wednesday the 4th June, 2014 by Ir. Tony Chew, Juna Azleen bin Abdul Ghani, Ir. Look Keman Sahari.

As a result of fast pace development housing, business centres, factories etc are being built near existing structures. Development within city areas for examples requires firm foundation below the surface where underground space are also used as car parks, LRT stations, bus station etc. Excavation of underground space requires the removal of soil and also rocks. In both Selangor and Penang Island the need for building new houses for expanding population requires the cutting and levelling of hilly areas. All these require the use of explosives.

Blasting of rock using explosives near existing structures especially where people live requires special expertise which ordinary shotfirers and even blasting engineers do not learn even in universities. Experience and guide from experienced engineers are needed to ensure successful and safe blasting work.

This one day seminar will discuss the current Regulatory requirements, procedures and also the need for proper competence persons to ensure the safety of the blasting work at construction sites. Standards that are being used as references will also be discussed. Current methodology being practiced will also be shown and case studies from previous project locally and overseas will also be referred.

Not forgetting, the peril of blasting work may result in incidents such as flyrock issues which had caused property damages and sometimes can be fatal. These incidents may result in long work stoppages. Techniques being applied to mitigate flyrock issues and also other environmental issues will be presented. The alternatives means of breaking rocks will also be discussed.
