Industrial/Urban Infrastructure

Responding to the Growing Demand for Industrial and Urban Infrastructure in Asian Countries

The demand for electricity, water and sewerage systems, railways, along with healthcare, etc., is expected to grow around the globe. In particular, in Asia, where economic growth and population growth have led to a remarkable population influx in the cities, there is an urgent need to improve urban infrastructure, and the railway market is expected to further expand further in response to the increased demand for passenger and freight transport.
The needs for water infrastructure are becoming more diverse, which include the repairment and improvement of aging facilities in developed countries, the improvement of sewage treatment quality and the expansion of treatment capacity to cope with urbanization in emerging countries, the development of water and sewerage systems and decentralized treatment facilities in developing countries, along with seawater desalination in island countries, and so on.

Railways

The global railway market continues to expand every year. In Asia particularly, the market is expected to expand further due to the increased demand for passenger and freight transportation. In the construction of railway infrastructure, which is an aggregation of complex subsystems, the JGC Group has been able to shorten construction periods, reduce costs, and reduce maintenance labor by taking advantage of its project management capabilities, the strength of an engineering company, and by taking an approach that pursues overall optimization by integrating civil engineering packages and mechanical and electrical packages. This approach enables the JGC Group to shorten construction periods, reduce costs, and reduce maintenance labor, thereby contributing to the export of overseas railway infrastructure, as promoted by the Japanese government.

Water Treatment

The needs for water infrastructure are becoming increasingly diverse, which include the repairment and improvement of aging facilities in developed countries, the improvement of sewage treatment quality and the expansion of treatment capacity to cope with urbanization in emerging countries, the development of water and sewerage systems and decentralized treatment facilities in developing countries, along with seawater desalination in island nations, and so on. JGC Corporation not only develops such diverse water infrastructures, but also offers proposals that contribute to reducing environmental impacts from water infrastructure development, such as water reuse and drainage reduction.

Complex Urban Infrastructure

Demand for social infrastructure such as electricity, water and sewerage systems, railways, and healthcare is expected to grow around the globe. In Asia, where economic growth and population growth have led to a remarkable population influx in the cities, there is an urgent need to develop urban infrastructure
The JGC Group supports not only the development of individual urban infrastructure, but also the development of complex urban infrastructures that are organically and efficiently linked to each other, as well as the development of industrial infrastructures such as industrial parks, by utilizing its project management and integration capabilities, which are the strengths of an engineering company.
In addition, by utilizing the Group's abundant experience in renewable energy facilities and energy-saving technologies such as energy management solutions, we will also contribute to the low-carbon and decarbonization of complex urban infrastructure and industrial infrastructure, which are crucial to the realization of a sustainable society.
