1. Data during Hydrographic Survey or Land Survey will be
mark-up from the actual volume (m3). Normally this data will be created as to get high volume as normal practice in dredging industry the payment will be based on unit rate (RM/m3) (i:e- actual volume on site is around 3million m3 but they declared up to 6 million m3). And they also have some special tools and method to manipulate the data. And also have a lot of way to to do it. Evidence, method and data are all ready to be discuss here in this humble BLOG.
2. They will also declare the capacity of their equipment
higher than the actual unit. For example. Actual hopper capacity of TSHD (Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger) named Inai Selasih declared by Inai Kiara for 10,700m3 while the actual volume 9,075m3 http://www.dredgers.nl/. And i also know that the requirement is local owner vessel. Try to think, how many contractor in this country MALAYSIA have their own vessel? Here also i will reveal/discuss about this. And how they cheated on buying the vessel and by the same time they make money from not declare the right amount of purchasing the vessel with the others related financial (bank etc.).
3. Violation of D.O.E Department of Environment) regulations
and other authorities by doing illegal movement / activity rather than the
allowed one. (i.e- Illegal dumping of dredged material. For example, the
dredged material were supposed to dump 30Nm (55km) to the actual area, but dump only halfway as to minimize movement, fuel consumption and to increase the trips for dredging operation. This will affect the nearby fishing activities and also polluted the surrounding areas. Many things to discuss here.
4. If the dredging design ( depth required to be dredged) are
not sufficient enough, or the vessel (dredger / dredging ship) need to move to another ports / project, they will manipulate the survey data from post dredged survey works (after dredging survey works) to be used as submission or proof to client for verification and payment. At some projects, they will use their money to bribes the technical teams such as client’s survey representative or even up to operational manager or even to the big fishes up there.
The best thing what i’ve heard is that they also manipulate SIGNATURE from Certified or License Surveyor (LS) some sort duplicate or copy it.
6. Even the technical team such as Project Manager or the Engineer are all corrupted. I will discuss about this later. Within their attitude and how their work.
