Hanwha Corporation/E&C has contributed to South Korea to grow as a nation through numerous public and private infrastructure and Social Overhead Capital (SOC) projects.
In the earlier years, we worked tirelessly to build the roads, railways, bridges and tunnels to interconnect people and enable trade across the nation.
The infrastructure we’ve helped to build has in turn, helped the nation of S. Korea become one of the 10 largest economies in the world.
Today, at Hanwha Corporation/E&C we’re investing in the development of renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power for the future.

Helping to build the infrastructures of a nation
Since its foundation in 1967, Hanwha Corporation/E&C has directly helped to rebuild the country of South Korea after war had decimated many of its buildings. Our contributions helped to develop the nation and the national economy with numerous public SOC (Social Overhead Capital) projects. Hanwha Corporation/E&C built roads, highways, bridges, and railways that have seamlessly connected the country, reducing travel time and enhancing the flow of trade and business. Behind every project was Hanwha Corporation/E&C’s desire to go beyond business success; it was a passion do what was meaningful for a nation and its people. The results were unprecedented like the Seoul-Busan Highway that spanning over 400 kilometers to connect the nation’s largest seaport to the largest city in the country and the constructions of the 3rd Seoul-Incheon Expressway, the Pyeongtaek-Siheung Expressway, the Shinbundang Subway Line, the automated Gimpo Goldline Subway, and the Seoul LRT (Light Rapid Transit) Sillim Line, and many more.

Building cities and managing natural resources
Historically, Hanwha Corporation/E&C has played a key role in rebuilding Korea after the war in mid-century. By repurposing useless lands or revitalizing abandoned ones we, in effect, bolstered the spirit of the nation and renewed the economic activity across the country. Since then, we’ve never stopped developing; instead, our projects have only become bigger, more complex, and global. We’ve been leading the industrial and residential development, creating now, the entire cities and their infrastructures like the Incheon EcoMetro city, Daedeok Techno Valley (DTV), the Yongin Techno Valley, Sejong city, and the New Bismayah City in the Middle East. We have also become involved in water resource management, developing several seaports and the Four Rivers Project, a multi-purpose green project to revitalize 4 major rivers with 14 tributaries covering more than more than 929 km of streams. Hanwha Corporation/E&C also builds water treatment facilities that include the HDF process, a membrane filtration and advanced water treatment technology. Korea’s Ministry of Environment has awarded Hanwha Corporation/E&C’s HDF process with Korea's first new technology certification.

Renewable wind and solar energy for the future
Hanwha Corporation/E&C is committed to a sustainable future through continuous technological development and eco-friendly management. Hanwha Corporation/E&C is aggressively investing in developing renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power in preparation for when finite energy sources such as oil, coal, and gas are depleted. And to reduce the environmental pollution from the use of fossil fuels, we’re taking steps now with sustainable projects like the Yeongyang Wind Power Complex, Jeju Sumang Wind Power Complex, and Vietnam Solar Power Plant. Hanwha Corporation/E&C is also developing its offshore wind power generation business. While we can boast our cutting-edge technologies as the key differentiator, we won’t. Our desire is to be differentiated from other companies for what we do towards enriching life with our innovations and discoveries for solutions to humanity’s greatest problems.
