China fines contractor with Portuguese-speaking presence due to poor quality material

The government of Zhejiang province, in eastern China, fined the China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC), a state-owned contractor with a presence in Angola, Brazil and East Timor, for using poor quality material and equipment.


In a statement, the Municipal Transport Bureau of Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang, announced a fine of 338,800 yuan (about 47,500 dollars) linked to the rehabilitation of a highway.

According to the office, a CRCC subsidiary "used unsuitable material, components and construction equipment and carried out works that did not follow engineering plans or technical construction standards".

The G235 highway connects the provinces of Jiangsu, in the east of the country, and Guangdong, in the south, and the contract awarded to the CRRC, worth 105 million yuan (14.7 million dollars), involved a section of 11.3 kilometers.

The CRCC is building the new Port of Beaço, which will be part of the new natural gas processing unit coming from the Greater Sunrise project, in southern Timor-Leste, estimated at 943 million dollars.

The contractor is also part of a consortium, formed by Chinese state-owned companies, which won an auction in 2019 to build and operate what will be the second largest bridge in Brazil, in the state of Bahia (northeast).

CRCC is also present in Angola where, among other projects, it concluded in July a drinking water supply system for around 600,000 inhabitants of Cabinda, the northernmost province of the country.
