Test piling of STO supplied concrete proven successful


State Trading Organization (STO) has supplied concrete for the test piling of the Thilamale’ Bridge project, which was reported to be successful.

The Thilamale’ Bridge project which aims to connect the islands of Vilimale’ and Gulhifalhu with Maldives capital Male’ City is now considered as the largest urban development project to be carried out in the island nation, which was previously held by the Sinamale’ Bridge project.

The successful completion of the Thilamale’ Bridge project will result in the five islands of Greater Male’ Region becoming interconnected via a series of bridges and causeways.

Earlier, STO had signed on a contractual agreement with the project’s contractor AFCONS Infrastructure to provide concrete.

Moreover, AFCONS is expected to purchase a total of 7,500 cubic meters worth of ready-mix concrete from STO for the project.

Meanwhile, the Managing Director of CEO of STO Mr. Hussain Amru noted that it was an honor to become a part of the Thilamale’ Bridge project. He had further expressed gratitude to the Indian government which has been instrumental in the commencement of the project.

India’s EXIM Bank has provided a financial facility towards the implementation of the urban development project.
