In building our submarine capability, our strive for the Transfer of Know-How (TOKH) has enabled the successful transfer of knowledge and skills among our engineers and high-skilled technicians. Since the arrival of Malaysia’s first submarine, KD TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN (KD TAR) in 2009, Boustead DCNS Naval Corporation Sdn Bhd (BDNC) has developed strong local expertise in submarine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) know-how.
As the prime contractor for the MRO of the Royal Malaysian Navy’s submarines, BDNC has extended the TOKH programme. Indeed, since last year, the programme has seen, for the first time, a participant from the RMN and Science & Technology Research Institute for Defence (STRIDE).
This year, as part of the BDNC Rise 2024 initiative, the TOKH programme has been extended further to other Government entities and universities with the participation of expert personnel from the Ministry of Defence, RMN, STRIDE, Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM) and Politeknik Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin, Arau, Perlis participating in the SCORPENE Submarines System Training Courses from July 2022 to August 2022. With engineers from BDNC’s Maintenance Operational and Engineering Department conducting a mixture of classroom-style and hands-on training, the participants have successfully completed five training courses on 24 August 2022.
Having been a long partner to RMN Submarine Command Headquarters, BDNC had already developed an extensive partnership with all the stakeholders in the submarine MRO ecosystem that brought multiple benefits, not just to the country’s economy but also our sovereignty.
