SMEC has operated in Cambodia since 1964. SMEC’s first project in Cambodia was a major hydropower and irrigation project on the Prek Thnot River, a tributary of the Mekong. However, political unrest caused its abandonment in 1975. SMEC returned to Cambodia in 1989 – one of the first companies to do so – and has maintained a presence there ever since.
Since then, SMEC has been involved in road restoration projects, emergency flood rehabilitation, hydropower projects, an irrigation and rural infrastructure improvement project, reconstruction of a health centre and assistance in development of Cambodia's justice system. SMEC has experience in the Transport, Water, Environment, Energy and Education, Governance and Government Advisory sectors in Cambodia.
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 Cambodia.
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.
