Myanmar invites tenders to build Thilawa ports

The Myanmar Ports Authority has announced eight construction tenders to construct a general cargo port and a container loading dock using Japanese development aid.

The port will be part of the Thilawa Special Economic Zone, an industrial complex south of Yangon, and building is due to start this year.

“We are looking for qualified international construction companies to build and quality-test purchasing equipments. In total, eight companies will be chosen,” said a responsible person from Myanmar Ports Authority.

The Ministry of Transport has received US$ 205 million loan from Japan to enlarge the Thilawa port. At present, only two ports are able to handle general cargo using a pier bridge which is still under construction.

The ministry is currently hiring experts advisors, inviting tenders, and preparing to construct buildings behind the port. 37 plots, 200 meters in length and 750 metres wide each had been brought out for the port expansion. 27 have been claimed by companies, so ten are still left.

The Myanmar Ports Authority is currently negotiating with residents to lease farms at plot numbers 25, 26, and 30 in the Thilawa region.
