Cavico Schedules Final Breakthrough Of Vietnam's Longest Tunnel At A Luoi Hydropower Project

Stocks in this article: CAVO

HANOI, Vietnam, March 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavico Corp. (Nasdaq:CAVO) ("Cavico" or the "Company"), a major infrastructure construction, infrastructure investment, and natural resources conglomerate based in Vietnam, today announced that its subsidiary, Cavico Bridge and Tunnel, has scheduled a third and final tunnel breakthrough at the A Luoi Hydropower project. The breakthrough is scheduled to take place during the second week of April 2011.

In July 2007, Cavico was awarded a contract to excavate the headrace tunnel as well as four sub-tunnels, a surge tank, a vertical shaft, and a service access road. The Company broke through the first and second sub-tunnels in August and December 2010, respectively. Cavico expects the A Luoi project to generate $53 million in total revenues for the Company.

Cavico employed the New Austrian Tunneling Method ("NATM") and blasting method to excavate the main and sub-tunnels. The headrace tunnel is 7.27 miles long, excluding sub-tunnels, and 21.3 feet wide. It is considered the longest and most sophisticated tunnel to be constructed in Vietnam.

The A Luoi Hydropower plant is built on the A Sap River, located in Thua Thien Hue Province in central Vietnam. The plant is owned by the Central Hydropower Joint Stock Co., a Vietnam-based company engaged in hydropower generation. The 170-megawatt capacity hydropower plant is expected to generate approximately 686 million kilowatt-hours of energy annually for the region.

"We are pleased to prepare for the final breakthrough on the A Luoi Hydropower project," commented Mr. Hung Manh Tran, executive vice president of Cavico. "Our efficient, highly skilled team is working diligently to excavate the final meters of the tunnel on this complex project."
