Cavico Completes U.S. $1.25M Song Tranh Bridge Project

Completion One Month Ahead of Schedule Reinforces Cavico's Capabilities for Larger Projects in the Future

LOS ANGELES, CA and HANOI, VIETNAM -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 7, 2006 -- Cavico Corporation (PINKSHEETS: CVCP), a Vietnamese company working in the fields of infrastructure development, including the construction of hydropower facilities, dams, bridges, roads, mines and urban buildings throughout Vietnam and the Pacific Rim, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Cavico Bridge & Tunnel, has completed the Song Tranh bridge project after eight months, which is a month ahead of schedule.

The bridge was turned over to the owner of the project, the Song Tranh hydropower plant (a project of Electricity of Vietnam), at a ceremony held on Dec. 2. The Song Tranh Bridge, which is 231 meters long, was engineered to be a permanent structure, meeting the universally accepted load-bearing requirements. This bridge is part of the Ho Chi Minh Transportation Infrastructure System. It spans the Tranh River, approximately 4.3 miles south of Bac Tra My and 35.4 miles from Highway 1A, where the Song Tranh hydropower plant is being constructed. When completed, the plant will provide 190 megawatts of power.

Mr. Ha Quang Bui, CEO of Cavico, said, "This bridge will help the construction of the Song Tranh hydropower plant move forward and improve the lives of the area's population. It also enables the relocation of more than 900 households that will be impacted by the plant. We are proud to have participated in this important endeavor."

Completion of this project follows several other major bridge projects that Cavico has been involved with, including the Dong Hai Bridge, the 2B Hai Van Bridge, the Se San 3 Bridge and the Buontuashar Bridge.

Bui added, "We are confident that our strong record of completing projects ahead of schedule and within budget will continue to create opportunities for Cavico. We will become involved in larger, more complex projects as the development of Vietnam's infrastructure continues over the next decade and beyond."
