SNC-Lavalin is highly active in Asia-Pacific, with projects across all our sectors, including mining and metallurgy, oil and gas, mass transit, power, pharmaceuticals and environment and water.
SNC-Lavalin recently signed a formal memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) to jointly develop and pursue power generation, mining and metallurgy and nuclear-related environmental protection projects. SNC-Lavalin has also developed long-term relationships with leading Chinese firms in our key sectors, and teamed up with them to carry out large-scale projects around the world.
In Malaysia, our transit group is completing an expansion of the Kuala Lumpur LRT system. In Australia, our oil and gas team at Kentz is currently working on some of the most important liquefied natural gas projects, including the world-class Gorgon facility.
Our objective in Asia-Pacific is to reinforce our presence and brand in Australia and in Southeast Asia, and leverage our footprint in the region to position the company for new business opportunities in these key markets.
