Technical Services and Constructionn of Industrial Plants in Myanmar ( by U
Win Aung Lay )
		 Since its establishment as a wing corporation of the Ministry of Industry
2, Technical Services has played a major contributory role in developing
industrial establishments in Myanmar by the construction of factories and
industrial plants wherever suitable and feasible, throughout the country. It
was primarily conceived and founded under the Ministry of Industry 2 as the "
Technical Services Corporation",to:
· Conduct project studies.
· Undertake civil construction projects.
· Install and erect machinery and equipment.
· Install energy and utility facilities.
· Implement projects directed towards the development of the economy.
		To implement these tasks a preliminary study was conducted by the Technical
Services Corporation (TSC) in 1975. With financial assistance from the UNDP
and the World Bank, a detailed study was made by UNICO Internatioal
Corporation of Japan, and a supporting study on the marketing and
distribution of the product "Urea" was conducted by the Fertilizer
Corporation of India, with the then TSC as an active partner. The outcome was
a urea fertilizer factory at Kyawzwa with a capacity of 600 tons per day and
another at Sa-le with a capacity of 260 tons per day. Similar studies
conducted on its own or in cooperation with foreign consultants resulted in a
number of other important projects. The Technical Services, as it is now
known, has rendered many vital services in civil construction as well as
mechanical construction and installations with its own crew of engineers,
skilled workers and fleet of heavy construction projects, some of which are
listed below.

		Active involvement in the actual construction of these plants led to the
realization that supplying locally available materials such as cement, timber
and concrete making aggregates posed no problems. But strict industrial
standards and construction specifications demands a very high standard of
workmanship. Safety standards were also strictly observed during construction
as the plants, when on stream, had to run on dangerous chemicals and highly
explosive gases. Most of the welding seams are high pressure or high
temperature pipes and vessels, whether it be of ordinary mild steel or
stainless steel or of alloys, and most have to undergo and pass X-ray tests
before being commissioned. To achieve such quality in workmanship, Technical
Services have organized and trained fitters and welders into a finely skilled
work force and put them to test before fielding them. Technical Services has
the distinction of being the sole government concern with experience in the
construction of industrial plants. Therefore, those interested in
establishing industrial projects in Myanmar are invited to contact us at all
times. Technical Services is always at your service!
