Description Light Rail Manila Corp. (LRMC), operator of Light Rail Transit (LRT) line 1, is speeding up the construction of the 11-kilometer railway extension to Cavite to meet the target of partial operation by end-2021 and full operation by 2022. After 19 years of waiting, civil works for the LRT-1 Cavite extension have finally begun last September 1. It started with piling works that involve constructing supporting piers that will serve as the foundation for the elevated railway structures. To speed up construction, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said piling works will be done simultaneously in up to five different areas where right of way (ROW) is made available. In cooperation with LRMC, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and the Parañaque local government, the DOTr and Light Rail Transit Authority have been working to deliver the ROW needed to ensure continuous works along the alignment. The project requires a total of 203 piers. Construction of the first 67 piers started on September 1 from Dr. Santos to Ninoy Aquino stations. Construction of 40 piers from Ninoy Aquino to Asiaworld stations and 22 piers from Redemptorist station to the existing LRT-1 Baclaran station will begin in November 2019. The 74 piers from Asiaworld to Redemptorist stations will begin construction in March 2020. Civil works along the Manila-Cavite expressway will begin soon, following coordination with its operator Cavitex Infrastructure Corp., the Philippine Reclamation Authority, the Toll Regulatory Board and some remaining property owners, such as Puregold and Aseana City. The LRT-1 extension to Cavite’s partial operability is targeted to start in the fourth quarter of 2021 with five stations: Redemptorist, MIA, Asiaworld, Ninoy Aquino and Dr. Santos. The rest of the line to Niog in Bacoor, Cavite will be operational in 2022. The three other stations are Las Piñas, Zapote and Niog. The new line will have a design speed of 80 km. per hour (kph) for the mainline track, 6 kph through stations and 30 kph for secondary and depot tracks. The commercial speed of the Cavite extension will be 60 kph.

Description State owned Indian power company NTPC has commissioned the country’s first ultra-super-critical unit at Khargone in the state of Madhya Pradesh. With a capacity of 660MW, the new power unit will have an efficiency of 41.5%, which is 3.3% more than the traditional super-critical units. With steam parameters of 600 degrees centigrade and 270 kg/cm2 pressure, the new unit has been designed to consume less coal and produce the equivalent of power in comparison to super-critical plants. NTPC said that the Khargone plant will feature two ultra-super-critical units with 660MW capacity each, thereby bringing the total plant capacity to 1,320MW. Additionally, the company said that the new plant will have the capacity to reduce carbon emissions by 3.3%. The required facilities for the sustainable running of the plant, such as fuel handling and transportation systems, are also in place. The company said that the plant is expected to start commercial operations soon. Through coal, gas, hydro, solar and wind plants, NTPC is meeting about 23% of the power demand in the country. In April 2019, GE Power installed its first turnkey full flow wet flue gas desulphurisation (WFGD) unit at NTPC’s 500MW super thermal power project site in Vindhyachal, Madhya Pradesh. For the project, GE Power delivered a WFGD system for the 500MW pulverised coal-fired boiler unit on a full turnkey basis that included designing, engineering, manufacturing, testing, civil works, erection and commissioning. The installation of FGD will be the first limestone-based WFGD that has been commissioned in an NTPC power plant suitable for continuous operation at the 500MW unit for 100% gas flow.

Description The first phase of tests on key installations conducted by engineers constructing the 600MW Karuma hydropower dam located at Kiryandongo District in Western Uganda have been completed successfully. According to Mr. Li Ji, the deputy manager of Sinohydro Corporation Ltd, which is undertaking the construction works, the tests have been conducted on the intake, radial and spillway gates, as well as some turbines. “The first tests on the key equipment of the facility started at the end of July and ended last month. With the tests having been confirmed, the project now stands at 95% completion status,” said Ji. The deputy manager affirmed that with the current work pace, he is positive that the project will be delivered in December this year. Karuma hydropower dam project site Workers on site are busy doing the final touches such as removing debris, plastering and painting walls, housing the caverns and generator units while others cast concrete on access roads inside the tunnel. Works on the outgoing line yard and switch-yard (GIS) as well as the transmission lines (Karuma-Lira and Karuma-Kawanda) are all 100% complete. Installation of Karuma-Olwiyo line is currently 98% complete, according to the contractor. All the civil works inside the powerhouse, dam’s intake and outfall concrete works are fully complete as well, except for the ecological ladder. The Uganda Electricity Generation Company Limited (UEGCL) said that construction of the fish ladder (a non-over flow section) is yet to be fully complete but in good course. This section will be enabling fish and other aquatic life in the dam to move freely upstream to feed and reproduce. A team of Ugandan engineers is at the moment being trained to manage the project so that upon its commissioning, they will have the know how to take on responsibilities of operations and maintenance.

NEDA documents showed as of July 31, 2019, 37 of the infrastructure flagship projects have been approved by the Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) and confirmed by the NEDA Board, with a total investment requirement of P1.63 trillion. NEDA said 28 projects are expected to be approved by the ICC and confirmed by the NEDA Board, while 10 projects do not require their approval. “In terms of project timelines, 21 projects are expected to be completed by 2022. The remaining 54 projects will be completed beyond 2022, but may commence implementation during the current administration,” the document showed. The agency said 52 or 69 percent of the projects worth P2.01 trillion are to be implemented through official development assistance, while 14 or 19 percent of the projects worth P238 billion through government funds. The remaining eight are to be implemented by public-private partnership, while one through purely private initiative. Of the 75 projects meanwhile, NEDA said 20 are under project development stage, while four were recently submitted to the ICC for appraisal/approval. The four projects are the Aqueduct No. 7, Pasacao-Balatan Tourism Coastal Highway, Camarines Sur Expressway Project (San Fernando-Pili section), and the Quezon-Bicol Expressway Project. NEDA said 46 are under implementation, of which two have been completed. These are the Improvement of the Remaining Sections along Pasig River from Delpan Bridge to Napindan Channel Project, which is a component of the ongoing Pasig-Marikina River Channel Improvement Project; and the Pulangi 4 Selective Dredging Phase 3. Also identified are nine projects with civil works ongoing as of July 31, and with target completion in 2022. These are the Clark Green City Government Center, Commercial Center, and Mixed-Income Housing (overall weighted physical accomplishment at 65 percent); Binondo-Intramuros Bridge (physical accomplishment at 8.65 percent); Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge (20.56 percent); Bonifacio-Global City to Ortigas Center Road Link Project, Phase I, IIA and IIB (33.79 percent); Chico River Pump Irrigation Project (57.22 percent); Malitubog-Maridagao Irrigation Project Phase II (57.46 percent), and the Clark International Airport Expansion Project-Engineering, Procurement and Construction (63 percent). The operation and maintenance for Clark International Airport will end in 2044. According to NEDA, five projects are tagged as “for review” due to pending concerns. “(This) may result in changes in the list of the 75 flagship projects,” it said. These projects were identified as the Metro Manila Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)-Phase 3, Agus 6 Unit 4 Major Rehabilitation Project, Agus 3 Hydroelectric Plant, Metro Manila BRT Line 2, and Sheridan-JP Rizal Bridge.

Description Malaysia Rail Link (MRL) announced that 331 local construction companies have been shortlisted as potential tenderers for civil works packages for the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project. The calls for tenders to the local contractors will commence in the fourth quarter of 2019. China Communications Construction Company Ltd (CCCC) had earlier called for submission of pre- qualification documents in May 2019 in an effort to identify potential local subcontractors for the 40 percent civil works portion of the project, excluding tunnel works. The tender packages to be issued for the 40 percent civil works would first involve the 223-km stretch from Dungun to Mentakab where the rail alignment had been finalized, and the tenders for local contractors would continuously be called throughout the construction period of the ECRL. The shortlisted companies represent 25.1% of 1,321 Malaysian construction companies following detailed evaluation of each entity’s track record, financial capabilities, technical personnel and plant and equipment. All shortlisted companies are expected to be notified in writing before end-August 2019 by CCCC who is the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) contractor for the 640-km ECRL project. MRL CEO, Darwis Abdul Razak, said that further tenders will be called once both the re-alignment from Kota Bharu to Dungun as well as new Southern alignment between Mentakab and Port Klang have been firmed up. The signing of a supplementary agreement between MRL and CCCC on 12 April 2019 had paved the way for the resumption of the ECRL project. The improved deal, amongst others, saw the construction cost of the ECRL reduced to RM 44 billion (USD 10.5 billion) from RM 65.5 billion (USD 15.63 billion), while the portion for local participation of the ECRL civil works rose to 40 percent from 30 percent previously. Prior to the suspension of the ECRL project, there have been local companies consisting of suppliers, contractors, and consultants that were appointed by CCCC for preliminary works on the ECRL. These contracts were suspended following the suspension of the ECRL project on 3 July 2018. The 640-km ECRL rail network is scheduled for completion by December 2026 and expected to link the East Coast states of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang to Negeri Sembilan, Selangor and Federal Territory of Putrajaya. The passenger trains will travel at 160km/h, cutting travel time from Kota Bharu to Putrajaya in4 hours.
