The Cameroonian government has just handed the contract to replace the roofs of the vats at Société nationale de raffinage (Sonara) to the China-based Top International Engineering Corp, for a total of 1.154 billion FCFA.
The project is expected to last six months. The Chinese company was chosen over the France-based Frielander, which was found to have made an “insufficient bid”, as well as the group led by Cimontubo out of Portugal which made an offer that was deemed to be too high.
A subsidiary of Shaanxi Construction Engineering Group Corporation, Top International Engineering Corp is one of the top 500 Chinese companies. The company operates in several Central and West African countries.
