San Roque Hydroelectric Project

Shimmick provided engineering, procurement, and construction services for the San Roque Hydroelectric project in the remote region of North Luzon in the Philippines.

Work sprawled over seven square miles and included the construction of all infrastructure facilities necessary to support the project. At peak construction, the labor force reached 5,000 personnel, utilizing a fleet of heavy construction equipment valued at more than $125 million.
