  • 楊錦華:航運業者往前沖
    航出砂州邁向國際

    詩巫沿海航運公會秘書暨創會30週年慶祝盛典等籌備會主席楊錦華表示:「目前,本會註冊的會員多在砂拉越州內航行。隨著時代的變化,需求的增加,不單只貨船,就連拖船和艟舡也能夠航向全世界。」

    金航企業有限公司執行董事楊謹華表示:「我們的公司乃家族生意,由公司創業,父親繼承,至今已第三代,起初主要是在砂州河內運輸木桐與沙石等。1997年,我們開始由河內轉運出海到沙巴的水域。2003年我們有跨越一步,拖船拉著艟舡遠赴西馬,當時是載著大型機械,建築材料與廢鐵等。跨越南中國海到西馬之後,才知道以往在砂州內河可以航行20、30年的船隻,其維修保養費僅等於在海中的2年。因為海水腐蝕,海浪的衝擊侵襲所致。另外,出海到西馬的船隻需要更多的文件與複雜的手續,才能獲取政府部門的準證與文件。另外一項挑戰是,出海的文件全是英文,官方的語文與衛星匯報全采用英、巫文,對年長有經驗的華人水手是一項大挑戰,需要不斷的學習,把常用的對話重复練習與抄寫,才能克服此項語文障礙。海員條件不足,以往殖民地時發出的證書已不能夠使用。有經驗的船長,機房頭手必須重新上課與考試,這對年過半百的船員是非常困難與挑戰性的。由於海員資格不足,必須采用鄰國的船長與舵手,這當然也直接增加營運成本。對於這些面對的困境,有望在詩巫砂拉越海事學院開辦之後的3-5年,該學院的畢業生可以減緩海員的缺乏。」

    2007年,金航企業有限公司成功獲得國際海務運輸服務、修船及造船的國際品質管理認證ISO9001:2000。

    金航企業有限公司(GIMHWAK ENTERPRISE SDN BHD)于今年2009年榮獲<金牛獎>“新秀企業將”的肯定,問到得獎的優勢時,楊謹華表示:「今年可以獲<金牛獎>的肯定,首先要感謝同行前輩的鼓勵與提拔,船務附屬工業的支持,領導層的高瞻遠矚,上下同心的成果。這項肯定將讓顧客對公司的產品有更大的信心,公司也承諾將提供更好的服務來回饋顧客。」

Until year 2003, we are started sailing the tugboat and barge to the peninsular Malaysia by carried the huge type machineries, building materials and scrap metal. We also learned that the maintenance costs of vessel which sailing in the river for 20 to 30 years are almost equal to two years old sea going vessel.  This is because of the seawater and wave reaction causing faster erosion to the hull.

    Besides, there are many complicated procedure to obtain the certificate or permit from the government department to operate in Peninsular. The official communication language, shipping permit and certificates and the satellite system which used English and Malay was a big challenge to the experienced chinese senior sailor. They have to continue learning, repeat practice and even transcript the general conversation to overcome the language barriers. Today many seafarers become unqualified because of holding an invalid certificate which approved during colony time. The experience captain and engineer have to attend the new courses and the examination again to obtain a new license. This is the extremely hard for them whose are ages more then fifty. The very limited of qualified local seaman forced the ship operators have to hire the candidates from the foreign country and these indirectly increase the operating cost. Follow by the opening of Sarawak Maritime School in Sibu, we are hopefully the manpower problem can be overcome within 3 to 5 years.”
