Major Projects

Canberra Light Rail Project

Canberra Light Rail Project is Mitsubishi Corporation (MC)'s first project in the railway operations business in Australia, and stands to bolster the company's efforts to develop other railway public-private partnership (PPP) projects in the country.

In May 2016, Canberra Metro Pty Ltd (Canberra Metro), a joint stock company established by MC and its consortium partners for the project, signed an agreement with the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Government for a concession to undertake Light Rail Transit (LRT) operations in Canberra under a PPP scheme. The project covers construction, as well as operation and maintenance of the 12-kilometer LRT system with 13 stops between central Canberra and Gungahlin in the north for 20 years.

The project has been listed in the first phase of plans for LRT network development in Canberra, and is being promoted as one of the ACT Government's top priorities. Through Canberra Metro, MC seeks to provide a safe, comfortable and on-time public transportation service that is environmentally friendly in keeping with the abundance of greenery in Canberra, while at the same time contribute to improving convenience for residents and stimulating economic activity in the country's capital.

Cape Flattery Silica Mine Ship Loader & Tripper Installation Project

Over 2017-18, MAL contracted with Cape Flattery Silica Mines (CFSM) to design, manufacture and install a new silica sand ship loader at CFSM's mine site in Far North Queensland (Australia).

The following video shows the delivery and installation of this equipment. The equipment was successfully and safely installed ahead of schedule, and is now providing CFSM with an enhanced ship loading capability.
