SHAH ALAM: Budi Axis Sdn Bhd has been awarded the three separate contracts to supply six acoustic hailing devices for six CB90s fast combat boats attached to the Markas Wilayah Laut 2 (Mawilla 2) based in Sandakan. A Google search showed that Budi Axis is operating out of an office at Jalan Ampang, in Kuala Lumpur.
The three seven-day notices for two acoustic hailing devices each, published on April 1, were issued for six CB90s – pennant numbers CB212 and 213; 214 and 215; 216 and 217.
Unfortunately, the Eperolehan website did not reveal the contract prices apart from stating that it was awarded to Budi Axis on a package price. The bid prices are listed below:
The other quotations ranged from RM188,000 to RM433,000 for CB214 and CB215; RM189,000 to RM433,000 (CB212 and CB213) and RM190,000 to RM433,000 (CB216 and CB217). (The numbers posted here was edited for brevity)
As for the notices to purchase six more acoustic hailing devices for CB90s based at Kota Kinabalu naval base at Teluk Sepanggar, it attracted 23 separate bidders – eight each for the first two notices and seven for the third notice.
The bids for the notices ranged from RM237,038 to RM 529,760. It may well be Budi Axis also took part in the bid. It must be noted the notices for the KK one was cancelled shortly after it was published as it had spelling mistakes and even named the acoustic hailing device being sought. It was republished with the correct spelling and no mentioned of the device being sought.
I have no idea whether it was the Ultra Eletronics HyperSpike HS-14 won the Sandakan bid or it was offered for the KK one.
