SERBA DINAMIK’S LIFESTYLE AND COMMUNITY HUB AN INNOVATION GAME-CHANGER FOR KOTA SAMARAHAN

KUCHING, Mar 10: Angkatan Zaman Mansang Sarawak (AZAM Sarawak), Sarawak Development Institute (SDI) and Faradale Media-M (FMM) had their chance to take a sneak peek into D-Virtual Park, the first virtual reality (VR) theme park in Malaysia.

The purpose of the visit to the park located at Serba Dinamik facilities and Smart Hub in Kota Samarahan on Mar 10 was to explore potential collaborations and linkages in future programmes as VR technology will become an increasingly important and accessible tool in various industries as the state moves towards Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.O).

The site also houses the Serba DigitalX Fablab (a community and innovation Lab) and SDx Studio (a co-working space) which are among the key developments of the Smart- Integrated Project which includes the one-of-a-kind D-Virtual Park, ESports Arena and D- Tamu (digital kiosks for hawker centers and local traders).

“This is the new lifestyle and community hub that can boost creativity and innovation. Thus the establishment of Serba DigitalX (SDx) as an innovation and creative hub will become a hotspot for talent and creative community to work on projects and share ideas,” General Operation Manager of Serba Dinamik IT Solutions, Abdul Qaiyum Alidin said.

According to Abdul Qaiyum, D-Virtual Park will also create an ecosystem for the younger generation to channel their creativity into bringing greater benefits to their communities.

“This initiative will not only provide an ideal environment for makers, creators, innovators but also position Sarawak as the preferred location for startups to grow globally,” he added.

A variety of VR entertainments such as VR Speed Cruiser, VR Elevation D’Luxe, VR Gyrate and many more are also available at D-Virtual Park.

The official launching of the park is slated for Mar 23 and various Memorandums of Understanding (MolJs) will be signed between Serba Dinamik and other agencies.— DayakDaily.

In comparison, the group’s IT segment achieved sales of RM8mil last year, and for the first four months of 2019, the group garnered revenue of RM25mil.

Group CEO Datuk Karim Abdullah said the target would be driven by its consumer IT products, particularly the cashless payment solution QwikPay which now has 50,000 users. Additionally, Serba Dinamik has RM50mil worth of IT projects in hand.

“We are confident of achieving our sales target. Going forward, IT will be an important business for Serba Dinamik. We will tap into our geographical network in the Middle East, Asia and Central Asia to grow this segment.

Serba Dinamik eyeing more smart maintenance projects

Serba Dinamik strongly believes that the smart maintenance systems and applications that it has developed would help asset owners to improve in terms of assets and productivity.

KUALA LUMPUR: Engineering services provider Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd (Serba Dinamik) plans to aggressively look for opportunities for smart maintenance projects next year, said group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Dr Mohd Karim Abdullah.

He said the group strongly believed that the smart maintenance systems and applications that it has developed would help asset owners to improve in terms of assets and productivity.

Serba Dinamik aimed to expand the services to the Middle East and Central Asia, apart from the existing projects in Malaysia and Indonesia, he said.

“We have received a purchase order from Indonesia for us to carry out the smart maintenance implementation of their assets. In Malaysia, what has been agreed is that the national oil company has allowed Serba Dinamik to use the smart maintenance systems and applications that we have developed in the contracts that we have secured with Petronas,” he told Bernama at the recent International Applied Vibration Conference (IAVIC) 2019.

Mohd Karim, who is also deputy president of the Institute of Materials, Malaysia, said Serba Dinamik was looking to expand the smart maintenance applications to sectors like power generation and facility management.

“Our smart maintenance systems and applications can also be used in buildings maintenance and other assets which is related to the building itself,” he added.

Overall, Mohd Karim said the adoption of Industry 4.0 (IR4.0) in the local oil and gas industry was low and awareness is needed to fast-track the IR4.0 adoption among these companies.

“Based on a study, they (O&G companies) are still in the Third Industrial Revolution (IR3.0). So, one of the major components in IR3.0 is digitalisation of data information and quite a number of oil and gas companies are starting or have done this digitalisation process.

“Then it goes to IR4.0 which involves data collection in digital format that can be used in data analytics and fast-track the results of data that are being collected. There are a lot of things to build up the awareness and to make it ready to be implemented in the industry,” he said.

Themed “Vibration in the Era of Industrial Revolution 4.0”, the two-day event was held on November 13 to 14, 2019.

The conference highlighted the latest standards, technology and best practices in not only solving but also managing vibration issues related to humans, processes, transportation, building, and structures, as well as machinery.

Serba Dinamik is an international services group providing integrated engineering solutions to the oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation industries, waste and wastewater, and utilities. To-date, the group’s order book has exceeded RM10 billion. — Bernama

Serba Dinamik — now, a strong force globally

KUCHING: From its humble beginnings in Bintulu way back in 1993, Serba Dinamik Holdings Berhad (SDHB) has achieved many milestones and developed into a force to be reckoned with on the global platform.

In 1997, the company became a vendor for Petronas. Four years later, SDHB secured its first overseas contract — a maintenance, repair and overhaul contract signed with a liquefied natural gas plant in Qatar. In 2017, SDHB was listed on the main market of Bursa Malaysia.

Today, SDHB and its group of companies are an international energy services group that provides a range of engineering services and solutions for the oil and gas industry from operation and maintenance, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning, in addition to other supporting products and services.

SDHB founder, group managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) Datuk Dr Mohd Abdul Karim Abdullah is one who helped elevate Sarawak’s oil and gas industry to greater heights; he is forward-thinking, highly ambitious, and insightful.

“Following the signing of an RM313 million contract between SDHB and Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd in early March this year, Sarawak’s oil and gas industry will be welcoming new opportunities in employment and capacity-building,” he remarked.

Dr Mohd Abdul Karim elaborated that based on the contract, Petronas facilities in the state would receive maintenance, construction and modification services as provided by SDHB.

“The awarding of this contract for Miri and Bintulu facilities reflects SDHB’s good reputation for quality of work and timely delivery. At the same time, we greatly emphasise occupational safety,” he added as he expressed the company’s sincere appreciation towards Petronas’ confidence in them.

SDHB is now venturing into new markets on a global scale, including Europe, America and the Middle East.

“Malaysia is just one market SDHB is focusing on. At the same time, we have enormous operations in various locations around the world,” he said, adding that 35 per cent of SDHB’s economic contributions over the last half-decade had been sourced domestically while the rest came from international operations.

One of the company’s most recent high-profile achievements just last week was its signing of a $30 million agreement with the Islamic Development Bank (ISDB) for the “Reverse Linkage” project in ISDB member countries.

The “Reverse Linkage” project, championed by ISDB, is a technical cooperation programme which provides solutions to development challenges through triangular cooperation. ISDB matches two member counties via the “Reverse Linkage” mechanism — enabling them to exchange resources, technology, and expertise.

Dr Mohd Abdul Karim described the agreement as a win-win situation for both his firm as well as ISDB.

However, the astute managing director is not one to put all his eggs in one basket. Being aware that some markets, such as in the Middle East, come with potential geopolitical risks, SDHB is also diversifying geographically in order to lessen risks.

“We are quite aggressively pushing in Central Asia and we have embarked in Africa as well,” he disclosed. With these expansions, SDHB expects a revenue increment of 15 to 20 per cent for this financial year.

The company has indeed been recognised for its diligent efforts, having recently earned oil and gas engineering and maintenance contracts in three countries, namely Uzbekistan, United Arab Emirates and Qatar all worth a combined total of USD110 million.

“In Malaysia, we have also been awarded six more oil and gas contracts,” Dr Mohd Abdul Karim disclosed.

Last year, SDHB had a combined revenue of RM3.28 billion. This year, the CEO hoped the company would be able to achieve RM4 billion in revenue.

He announced that SDHB was close to achieving this year’s order book target of RM10 billion, currently standing at RM8.3 billion.

Touching on key components of their business, Dr Mohd Abdul Karim highlighted sustainability and flexibility.

SDHB, he remarked, was always willing to re-evaluate if certain operations were hindered by external factors, instead focusing on effectively expanding their operations and earnings in other regions if necessary.

Meanwhile, SDHB’s scope is also broadening with the group aiming to be a serious contender in renewable energy, with RM700 million being allocated to several power generation projects just last August.

According to Dr Mohd Abdul Karim, SDHB is setting its sights on hydro markets such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Laos.

Thinking ahead in this modern age, SDHB is now venturing into the technological sector as well, especially with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Serba Dinamik IT Solutions Sdn Bhd.

“We believe there is potential growth for our IT (information technology) division, which is important as well since IT is a catalyst for the future’s shifting lifestyles.
