PETALING JAYA: Cable and wire manufacturer Southern Cable Group Bhd has secured a rectifier systems supply contract worth RM30.4 million from Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) to be fulfilled over 30 months from September 2021.
The group’s wholly owned subsidiary Southern Cable Sdn Bhd would supply, deliver, install, test and commission rectifier systems, including associated engineering services and accessories for TM’s regional hubs in Peninsular and East Malaysia.
Rectifier is a device that converts electrical alternating current to direct current, which are required for the operations of some transmission applications and devices.
Southern Cable Group managing director Tung Eng Hai said Southern Cable has been supporting TM for more than 18 years, alongside the increasing modernisation of the nation’s telecommunication infrastructure.
“This latest contract is the largest rectifier systems order we have secured from TM to date, complementing our long term supply of communication cables and wires. We are ready to support TM’s ongoing expansion to accelerate digital connectivity and 5G rollout via the Jalinan Digital Negara plan with the supply of our rectifier systems as well as other communications and related equipment.”
