SHAH ALAM, MARCH 20: The Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) is committed to develop a Smart City model through their new development, Selangor Cyber Valley (SCV) consistent with the notion of Smart Selangor anchored by Dato’ Menteri Besar.

Its Chief Executive Officer, Noraida Mohd Yusof said, the development of Smart City SCV area of 1,300 acres will be done in phases based on nine key concepts.


She said it includes the concept of safe city, business-friendly, efficient city, education city, green city, urban innovation, smart community city and smart premises thus making it a vibrant and sustainable city.

She said the concept is also reinforced with the ‘internet of things’ element and is ‘smart and well connected’ in terms of infrastructure and accessibility.

“More interestingly, with the construction of the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), this development is defined as a planned high-tech city with e-services for the residential and commercial hubs.

“It can reduce the digital divide consistent to the development concept that emphasizes ‘work-live-play’ reflecting the modern lifestyle of today,” she said during the Selangor Government Department’s monthly assembly at the Dewan Jubli Perak.

The symbolic event marking the launching of the project was completed by Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

Noraida said the uniqueness of SCV also include a fibre-optic cable network channels for high-speed networks as well as mobile application development to accept complaints.

She said the SCV also guarantees the quality of security with the installation of closed circuit television cameras (CCTV) and intelligent traffic light system as well as environmental detection device to provide indication on the quality of the environment over time.

“As a start, Phase 1 covers 25 square kilometre area with several features that will be regulated by the Integrated Control Centre which will be developed later.

“This planned city is designed with an emphasis on a broader communication network aspect while increasing the provision of energy, water and waste management systems.

“This mixed development in the SCV includes residential, industrial parks that instil the green elements or better known as the ‘green and sustainable industry’, commercial centres, educational institutions and complete public facilities,” she said.

She said PKNS is optimistic that SCV can be among the ideal liveable cities in the Selangor.

“As a major developer, PKNS will also be accompanied by its subsidiary, Selangor Industrial Corporation (SIC), which will be managing and coordinating infrastructure development based on the concept of ‘Smart City Initiative’,” she said.
