Samsung C&T in a joint venture with Build King has secured a $340M contract to enhance ground beneath the seabed for Hong Kong International Airport third runway.
The project represents the first stage of the Three Runway System (3RS) — aiming at expanding the airport into a three-runway operation.
Under the contract, awarded by Airport Authority Hong Kong, the joint venture will improve soft ground located about 7m below the sea, using a deep cement mixing method before land reclamation takes place.
Hans Whang, head of Samsung C&T civil infrastructure business unit, said: “We are honoured to be part of the 3RS project, which we understand is meaningful for Hong Kong‘s further development.
“Even though challenging, we are certain that by working closely together with our trusted partners and maintaining a strong emphasis on safety and quality, this project will have outstanding results.”
Construction work on the project will start in August 2016 and will last for 20 months.
