International expansion

The company has aggressively gone on the path of international expansion, becoming a “face of China expansion” across the world by pursuing operations in 55 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe (from the European headquarters of Belgrade, Serbia), North America and South America.

In the course of international expansion, the company has run into bumps ranging from political risk to environmental controversy. Workers of the affiliated company Power Construction Corporation were abducted in 2012 by the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North while building a road in Sudan.

In Malaysia, the company worked on a joint venture with Sime Engineering to build the largest dam in the country. The Sarawak Report, alleged that Sinohydro had widely used a technique involving adding excessive water to cement, making the construction unsafe. Sinohydro responded that the dam was safe but some work like the cleaning of silos wasn’t done “following instructions”. The webpage of the Sarawak Report was hacked after it published the story.”
