The Maintenance Contract for Seawalls and Navigation Channel (2016-2021) was signed formally between CWE Hong Kong and the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) of HK SAR on September 23, 2016.
The project has a contract amount of 240 million Hong Kong dollars (equivalent to USD 30.77 million) and a construction period of 5 years, scheduled to commence on October 8, 2016. Its main works include the repair and maintenance for marine facilities within Hong Kong waters.
Before signing the contract, Mr. LAU Chun-kit Ricky, Deputy Head of CEDD, highly praised CWE’s outstanding performance, efficient teamwork and proper handling of emergencies in the ongoing maintenance contract for seawalls and navigation channels. He also expected CWE to keep performance and play to its strengths in this new contract, fully cooperating with the Employer during the following 5 years of works.
The project management is actively carrying out the preparatory work before the commencement.

Based on execution of the new contract, CWE hopes to gain more experience, improve its management, and cultivate more talents for marine works.
