P2.9B concrete supply deal inked for PNR Clark Phase 2 project
Firms involved in the construction of the 54-kilometer Philippine National Railways Clark Phase 2 railway project has sealed a P2.9-billion subcontracting agreement for the supply of ready-mix concrete, according to a Punto Central Luzon report.
The report identified the companies as Megawide Construction Corp.’s Batching Plant Unit with the joint venture of Hyundai E&C, Megawide, and Dong-ah Geologica.
The project will stretch from Malolos City in Bulacan to Clark and feature the country’s first airport railway express service, according to the report.
The other two segments are the PNR Clark Phase 1 from Tutuban to Malolos and PNR Calamba from Solis to Calamba.
The new contract provides for the installation and operation of concrete batching plants and supply of ready-mix concrete to the project, according to the report.
“PNR Clark Phase 2 promises to improve transportation of people, goods, and services from Central Luzon to the National Capital Region, with the goal of boosting mobility, trade, and commerce between the two regions,” Megawide EVP Markus Hennig was quoted as saying in the report.
“Through our combined expertise in engineering and construction, we would be able to meet and support the demands of the railway project by ensuring operational efficiency and raw material availability through the steady supply of consistent, high-quality ready-mix concrete,” he added.
Two mobile batching facilities will be built by Megawide with rated capacities of 120 and 80 cubic meters per hour, the report said.
Megawide previously announced that its business units are gearing up to support the construction of the Package 1 of the PNR Clark Phase 2, a flagship project of the Department of Transportation under the government’s Build, Build, Build program.
