JFE Engineering Myanmar JV Makes First Shipment of a Bridge Block
 

Tokyo, July 25, 2014 (JCN) - JFE Engineering and Myanmar's Ministry of Construction established J&M Steel Solutions Company Limited, a JV company committed to infrastructure construction, in November 2013, then began construction of a plant that fabricates steel structures such as bridges in Thaketa Township, Yangon City the following December.

The main facilities of the new plant started operating in April 2014 by fabricating a steel bridge, and the first bridge block was shipped on July 20. J&M also announced construction of all facilities has been completed, and a grand opening ceremony was held on July 20.

Since the establishment of the company, J&M Steel Solutions has received orders from Myanmar's Ministry of Construction for steel bridge design, fabrication and erection-planning regarding bridges such as the Than Lwin Bridge to be constructed in Kayah State in eastern Myanmar and the Htee Gyaint Bridge across the Irrawaddy River in Sagaing Region in the north of the country.

In addition to these orders, JFE Engineering subcontracts the fabrication work which it receives from countries other than Myanmar to J&M Steel Solutions, and as a result the company’s order backlog already amounts to as much as 7,000 tons (weight of steel).

The bridge block of this first shipment is part of a 200-ton truss bridge for one of Myanmar's neighboring countries, Laos. The plant is going to continue fabricating more blocks and is due to complete shipping them by August.

Development of transportation infrastructure, such as roads and railways, as well as logistics infrastructure, including port terminals are vital for the economic growth that Myanmar aims to achieve.

J&M Steel Solutions is committed to contributing to the country's domestic fabrication ratio which the country strives to increase, while developing itself by introducing Japanese advanced technological skills from JFE Engineering in such fields as harbor & coastal piers and container cranes.
