China Harbour Engineering Co Ltd (CHEC) is an engineering contractor and a subsidiary of China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), providing infrastructure construction, such as marine engineering, dredging and reclamation, road and bridge, railways, airports and plant construction.[1] It is the second largest dredging company in the world, carrying out projects in Asia, Africa, and Europe.[2]

History[edit]

The company was established in December 2005 during the merger of China Harbour Engineering Company Group (founded 1980) with China Road and Bridge Corporation into CCCC.

Projects[edit]

CHEC has won large contracts for dredging, particularly in the Middle East and Asia. In January 2011, the company was awarded an $880 million contract for the first phase of the New Doha port project, which involved the excavation of 58 million cubic metres of material (covering an area of 3.2 square kilometres to a depth of 18 metres) and the building of an 8-kilometre-long quay wall and a 5 km rubble breakwater.[3]

On top of its specialty as a dredger, the rest of the core business is construction in the fields of marine engineering, road and bridge, airports, power plants, railway, water supply, and environmental protection.[4] The company works on more than 100 construction projects across the world, some big ticket projects include:
