SHAH ALAM: In the earlier post, I wrote about the Deftech deal for the three-tonne GS cargo truck. It was the only thing that was publicly announced that Deftech was getting although it also got the one-tonne GS Cargo and passenger buses for the Army which were awarded to it almost at the same time.
Two companies, Zetro Services Sdn Bhd and Airod (including its subsidiary ATSC and Airod Techno Power) received multiple contracts, LOIs and LOAs at the ceremony. Zetro – which is the designated electronics repair shop for the Armed Forces – were awarded the contracts for maintenance of air defense radars and electronics for RMAF (RM412 million); maintenance aircraft radar and avionics for RMAF (RM164 million) and the performance based maintenance of RMAF air traffic control radars (RM81 million). It is likely this contracts will be for a three year period as it is the standard practice.
As for Airod, it got the maintenance contract for the government V/VIP aircraft owned by RMAF (Global Express, Falcon 900 and the Black Hawk S70A helicopter) for RM139 million. Its subsidiary, Airod Techno Power Sdn Bhd got the maintenance contract for the C130 Hercules T56 engines for RM137 million. ATSC in the meantime got the Sukhoi Su-30MKM 10th Year SLEP (RM160 million) and the industrial collaboration for the supply of articles, performance of services and provision of technical assistance for the same aircraft (RM560 million). Again it is likely all the contracts are for a three year period.
And if you ask why Airod and its subsidiaries then? Who else has the facilities and personnel to do it?
