Information Sheet No.A-0167(I) (r)

Since 20 years ago, 'TSC' is adequately translated into Burmese as "ta-wet-si," meaning that at least 50% of the project funds were stolen by the corporation at any given project you named. How much of this figure has been inflated nowadays? To me, it was established not for technical services but for monopoly.

>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 esquipment.
>· 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.

>· 25ton/day Pulp and Paper Mill, Yeni(1976-Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, Japan)
>· No.1 Copper Project, Monywa(1980)

>· 260ton/day Urea Factory (1981 Voest Alpine AG Austria)
>· 5200 bbls/day Thanlyin Coker Plant (1983 Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, Japan )
>· Office buildings, department stores, town halls, religious, banks.
>· School, commercial buildings, hotels etc:(1988 to date)
>· The Myawaddy Television Station(1993)
>· The Myanmar Hwafuh International Ltd Garment Factory(1994)
>· Rothman of Pall Mall (Myanmar)Pte.Ltd Cigarette Factory(1994)
>· Triumph International Ltd Garment Factory (1995)
>· The Myanmar Daewoo Electronic Co.Ltd. Factory (1995)
>· The Myanmar Heavy Industries Electronic Appliances Factory(1995)
>		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!
