CM launches new low-altitude flying craft that can land on water. fly ship_300MELAKA: Melaka will manufacture “flying ships” or multipurpose Wing-In-Ground Effect aircraft that can cruise at low altitudes of up to 150m over flat surfaces, most often over water.

Chief Minister Idris Haron said the aircraft would be produced at a factory near here by 2014. The manufacture of the vehicle, using South Korean technology, would lure more investors to the state. The vehicle operates somewhat like a hovercraft and an aircraft and can be used for search and rescue operations in the ocean. “Besides, it can also be used for tourism purposes,” Idris said after launching the Jebat M727 ground effect vehicle on Friday.

The vehicle, built by Aron Rinani Sdn Bhd, can fly at up to 150m and has a range of 800km. Aron Rinani president Noor Azerai Ahmad said the first vehicle, costing US$1 million, would be ready by June at the assembly plant in Masjid Tanah, Alor Gajah.

As the current factory can only produce seven vehicles a year, a new plant will be constructed in Teluk Gong, Alor Gajah, with the capabiity to produce 50 vehicles a year. He said the company had received orders for 100 units from several companies. - BERNAMA

 Soon after China identified Malaysia's Malacca as part of its 21st Century Maritime Silk Route economic belt (MSR), an international shipping port is being planned for the state.
 
The existing port in Malacca would be expanded to meet international standards, informed the Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, as per a report in the Star.
 
A vast opportunity awaits Malacca under MSR, and the government will start with the port expansion as part of the initiative, the minister added.
 
The authorities are still planning the project to make Malacca port part of the Chinese MSR initiative, and Liow has discussed this with his counterpart from China. He added that his ministry had suggested that cruise liners ferry tourists from China directly to Malacca through the MSR maritime route.
 
Liow said the MSR was mooted by Chinese President Xi Jinping as China was eager to increase its maritime cooperation and explore trade opportunities.
