Case 1

[Socialist Republic of Vietnam]
Project of building a new instant coffee factory


Marubeni Corporation decided to construct an instant coffee plant in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, Vietnam, which was expected to have a production capacity of 16,000 tons per year , the largest in Vietnam. We were involved in the construction of the instant coffee plant from the conceptual stage, including land selection, and provided construction management services during plant construction, as well as basic design of various utility facilities and ancillary facilities to operate the instant coffee plant, such as boilers and wastewater treatment facilities, and installation of production facilities.

The project for expansion of the terminal building at Kamuzu International Airport


As part of the Japanese Government's Grant Aid program, we were awarded a contract for the renovation and expansion project of passenger terminal building at Kamuzu International Airport located in Lilongwe, the capital of Republic of Malawi. The project aimed to improve the capacity, efficiency, and safety of the airport and contribute to the promotion of cross-border movement of people and logistics in Malawi by constructing a new international departure/arrival terminal, a domestic terminal, and renovating the existing terminal. The newly constructed terminals are already in use, helping to increase the passenger handling capacity of Kamuzu International Airport.

Case 3

[Republic of Angola] Textile factory rehabilitation project
Construction management


Marubeni Corporation was awarded a contract as the Marubeni Group to undertake a textile factory rehabilitation project, including renovation of existing factories, delivery and installation of production equipment at three textile factories in the Republic of Angola, in order to revitalize the textile industry and agriculture and create employment opportunities in the country, which was devastated by its civil war that lasted until April 2002. This rehabilitation project was to install state-of-the-art spinning, weaving, and dyeing equipment as well as utility facilities such as cogeneration and wastewater treatment at the three existing factories, enabling the factories to produce textile products in their own countries, which depended on imports. As part of the Marubeni Group project team, we were responsible for construction management from basic design to construction management including building renovation, new construction, factory utilities, and ancillary facilities.
