SMEC has operated in Lao PDR since 1981. SMEC's first project in Lao PDR was the Heavy Plant Maintenance Project. SMEC provided assistance with the maintenance of earthmoving equipment belonging to the Lao PDR Department of Irrigation. Some of the equipment had been unserviceable for more than ten years. The project led to the establishment of a commercially successful workshop and training centre for Department of Irrigation employees.
Since then, SMEC has produced topographical mapping and aerial photography for the Nam Theun River project, worked on a number of road improvement projects and hydropower plant development projects, been involved in flood plain and hydrology assessments and assisted in strengthening the education ministry capacities. SMEC has experience in the Transport, Water, Energy, and Education, Governance and Government Advisory sectors in Lao PDR.
SMEC aligns local knowledge with global expertise to address the needs of its diverse client base, and has delivered thousands of projects in more than 100 countries, including Lao PDR.
We draw on the skills and experience from across the Surbana Jurong Group to offer enhanced capabilities and reach, delivering a complete value chain of services across Urban Development, Infrastructure and Management Services.
