Planting mangrove trees (International Division)

In August 2012, a total of 75 people—local employees of Thai Shimizu, a subsidiary of the International Division, and family members—planted mangroves on the coast of Chonburi Province, south of Bangkok, part of its efforts to protect the coastal environment. This marked the second time these activities were held. To date, these efforts have led to the planting of 2,000 trees, helping to safeguard the local environment and reduce CO2 emissions.

Site Visit by Malaysian Primary School Students to the Pahang
– Selangor Raw Water Transfer Project

24 students and 4 teachers from the Tamil Primary School in Karak, Pahang State, Malaysia toured the construction site of the longest tunnel in South East Asia on 22 September 2013. This tunnel is under construction by a joint venture between Japanese and Malaysian contractors, with Shimizu Corporation in the lead.

During the visit, the joint venture staff discussed the purpose of the project and tunnel construction methods. The students were then treated to a demonstration of the construction equipment, marvelling at the huge underground cavern produced by the modern equipment.

The Pahang – Selangor Raw Water Transfer Project kicked off in June 2009. Since then, Shimizu has continually engaged the surrounding communities. To date, more than 7,000 people have visited the site, making this project one of the best known tunnelling projects in the country. The visit by the primary school students is but one example of Shimizu’s numerous outreach efforts.
