Cavico Announces Tunnel Breakthrough at the A Luoi Hydropower Project

HANOI, VIETNAM--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -  Cavico Corp. (NASDAQ: CAVO), a leading infrastructure development company based in Vietnam, today announced that its subsidiaries Cavico Bridge and Tunnel has broken-through the sub-tunnel at the A Luoi Hydropower project. Cavico excavated approximately 1,950 meters, or 6,400 feet, of tunnel from the sub-tunnel No. 1 to sub-tunnel No. 2.

The A Luoi Hydropower plant, owned by the Central Hydropower Joint Stock Co., is built on the A Sap River, located in the Thua Thien Hue province in Central Vietnam, which is 43 miles west of Hue and 100 miles northwest of Da Nang. The 170 Megawatt-capacity hydropower plant is expected to generate approximately 686 million kilowatt-hour (kWh) annually for the region.

In July 2007, Cavico was awarded a contract to excavate a headrace tunnel at this project that is 12 kilometers long and 5 meters wide. This is considered the longest and most sophisticated tunnel to be constructed in Vietnam. In addition to the headrace tunnel, Cavico was also contracted to excavate four sub-tunnels, a surge tank, a vertical shaft, and a service access road. The total expected revenue value from the A Luoi project is $53 million.

"We are pleased with our progress at the A Luoi Hydropower project," commented Mr. Hai Thanh Tran, vice president of Cavico Corp. "The sophistication of this tunnel requires the highest and most efficient level of technical knowledge, in which Cavico's talented team possess and has done a tremendous job delivering superior work to our customer. We continue to focus our efforts on completing this project in the safest and most timely manner."
