Hyundai E&C has been standing at the forefront of construction for key national industries based on our indomitable spirit, strong will, and driving force. The various infrastructures built by us, including reclaimed land and new roads across land and sea, have made our lives and the lives of mankind more convenient and innovative.
Starting with restoring the Han River Pedestrian Bridge (present-day Hangang Bridge) after the Korean War, we have laid many bridges, playing a leading role in the “Miracle on the Han River” as well as the expansion of Seoul and the economic development of South Korea.
The history of the overseas construction industry in Korea began with Hyundai E&C. Since building the Pattani-Narathiwat Highway in Thailand in 1965 as the first overseas project conducted by a Korean construction company, we have gained global trust in both technology and scale by successfully completing the Industrial Harbour Project in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, which is touted as the largest substation project of the 20th century, while laying the groundwork to continually secure mega-scale projects.
Hyundai E&C’s indomitable spirit of pioneering and taking on challenges birthed technological innovations in Successful completion of overseas projects such as the Penang Bridge Project in Malaysia and the Jamuna Multi-purpose Bridge Project in Bangladesh set a new milestone in the construction history of Korea. We have been leading the field of super long-span bridges by completing mega projects including the Third Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul, Turkey as the world’s first hybrid cable-stayed suspension bridge, the Ulsan Grand Harbor Bridge in Korea as the world’s third single-span suspension bridge, and the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway in Kuwait at a world-class scale of 36.1 km.
With our incessant research and development (R&D) activities in construction technology, we also opened a new horizon for underground projects, which had remained an unexplored territory in the Korean engineering and construction sector, by successfully building the underwater oil storage facility in Jurong, Singapore, ranked as the third largest “oil hub” in the world. The development of traffic facilities including Yeongdong Expressway in Korea and Rusail Highway in Qatar showed a new possibility for mankind by applying cutting-edge IT technology to Korean and overseas traffic infrastructure.
Going forward, we will dedicate our utmost efforts toward becoming an unparalleled global construction leader by focusing on securing advanced technologies, diversifying the overseas markets, and pursuing green construction.
