Water Transmission Improvement Project in Philippines

Construction of new Tunnel No. 4 (4.00 meters diameter x 6.40 kilometers length) from Ipo to Bigte.

Aims to improve the reliability and security of the raw water through partial rehabilitation of the transmission system from Ipo to La Mesa and the introduction of water safety, risk and asset management plans.

The Project involves the construction of a new 4.00 meters tunnel (Tunnel no. 4) by 6.30 kilometers including intake and outlet works.

The Project will secure raw water supply to the 13 million inhabitants of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) service area, through the rehabilitation of the Angat transmission line.

It is estimated that currently each day about 800,000 cubic meter (m3) or 20% of the total potential capacity of raw water is lost due to leakage of the aqueducts.

The main components of the Angat transmission line are as old as 50 years, in poor condition, and not in compliance with structural and seismic requirements, risking the partial interruption of Metro Manila’s water supply. The proposed financing modality is a Project loan.

Provision of water supply and sanitation in Metro Manila (Manila) is the responsibility of MWSS, a government-owned corporation. In 1997, it awarded two concession contracts to private firms for water distribution. MWSS retained responsibility for bulk water supply.

The privatization of the distribution services brought about significant improvements in the delivery of water supply services. The serviced population has doubled since 1997, of which more than 90% have 24 hours access.

The non revenue water level (NRW) of over 60% in 2002 currently ranges from 10 to 40%. MWSS’s capacity to fulfill its responsibility of ensuring and securing the availability of raw water to the concessionaires needs to be strengthened by:

(i) Rehabilitation of the raw water transmission system; and

(ii) adopting a comprehensive water safety, risk- and asset management system.

Tafila Wind Power Project in Jordan

Daelim Energy and Korea Southern Power developed a 51.75 MW Wind Power Project at Tafila, located 140km southwest of Amman, Jordan.

Daelim Energy and Korea Southern Power signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 20 years with Jordan National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) in 2016, and reached financing close on September, 2018.

IFC and private banks covered by KSURE are participating as lenders. Construction of the Project started on October 2018 and its operation is planned in March 2020.

The EPC order was placed by special purpose company Daehan Wind Power. Korea Southern Power and Daelim Energy have co-invested in Daehan Wind Power. The supply, transport, installation and commissioning of 15 of Vestas’ V136-3.45 MW turbines are included in the contract.

This comprehensive EPC contract reinforces our leadership in the Jordanian wind energy market and demonstrates our project management expertise and broad range of auction capabilities.

Dairy Plant Construction Project in New Zealand

To Build Dairy Plant at Hokitika, South Island.

The co-operative has secured a NZD 9.9 million ($6.7 million) loan from the country’s government to construct the unit, which is specifically designed for made-to-order segregation of milk types.

The plant will allow Westland to separately process (segregate) multiple types of special milk into high-value products to meet growing global and domestic demand.

Westland Milk Products claimed that a purpose-designed plant for processing multiple segregated products will be a first for the New Zealand dairy industry.

The unit which is expected to be operational in time for the 2019-20 seasons will also allow the co-operative to produce high-value segregated product even during the peak milk season.

Segregated production of specialty milk is a key component of Westland’s five-year strategy.

Mandani Bay Quay Project in Hong Kong

The project covers a floor area of 328,000 sq.m., where three 40-storey residential towers, one 30-storey office building, and commercial spaces are set to stand.

Megawide will start building the first tower this year, including the amenities area, commercial spaces, and parking level. This is scheduled to be completed by 2021.

The second and third towers will be completed within the first half of 2022 and first quarter of 2023, respectively. The office tower is scheduled for completion by the fourth quarter of 2022.

This large-scale, mixed-use development is solidifying Megawides engineering footprint in Cebu.

This allows the company to further expand its footprint in Cebu, where it also operates the Mactan-Cebu International Airport in a consortium with Indian firm GMR Infrastructure Ltd.

Horticulture Value Chain Infrastructure Project in Uzbekistan

The proposed project supports the Government of Uzbekistan’s plan to establish horticulture clusters where production and post-harvest services can be consolidated to improve efficiency and economies of scale.

It will finance the establishment of agro-logistic centers (ALCs) in two locations Andijan and Samarkand regions considering international best practices.

The ALCs will provide all necessary facilities and services in one place: trading, storage, processing, food safety certification, customs clearance, transport, shipping, marketing advisory services, trade finance, and commercial banking.

Significantly larger volumes of product with improved quality will be marketed as a result of better post-harvest logistics that will facilitate reduced post-harvest losses and increased domestic sales and exports.

The ALCs will enhance value chain linkages with production, post-harvest processing, and handling following international quality and safety standards.

Photovoltaic Power Plant Project in Canada

The study will be carried out by the U.S. engineering firm Power Engineers, Inc. based in Hailey, Idaho. Power Engineers, Inc. will work to determine the size of the solar plant, provide the government with vital analysis/documentation, and evaluate the implementation of an energy storage facility to strengthen the stability of the local grid.

JCM is co-developing the Golomoti Solar Initiative with InfraCo Africa, part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG).

This project represents one of the first to be developed by an independent power producer (IPP) under recent energy sector reforms in Malawi.

Through Malawis first competitive bidding process for solar generation, this project was developed with assistance from Power Africa and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).

Malawi targets to expand energy access across the country and achieve 30 percent access by 2030, and 60 percent by 2040.

Corridor Express Project in United States of America

The Inland Empire, the metropolitan area in Southern California where I-10 is located, has experienced significant population growth over the past several years.

In San Bernardino County alone, the population is expected to grow 30% by 2035.

The I-10 Corridor is a critical link within the Inland Empire serving local, commuter, and interstate travelers.

It also serves as a major trucking route between Southern California and the rest of the country.

Lane, in a joint venture with Security Paving Company, Inc., is designing and constructing 11 miles of two express lanes in each direction of I-10 from the Los Angeles/San Bernardino County line to east of the I-10/I-15 interchange.

Once completed, the project is expected to reduce traffic congestion, increase throughput, enhance trip reliability, and provide long-term congestion management of the corridor in the Inland Empire.

Construction is expected to start at the end of 2019 and be completed by end of 2023.
