Infrastructure 100 - A showcase of the most interesting infrastructure projects from around the world 

KPMG's Global Infrastructure practice, in conjunction with Infrastructure Journal, launched a new publication entitled the Infrastructure 100 - a showcase of the most interesting infrastructure projects from around the world.

 

Of those 100 projects - all shortlisted for their scale, complexity, innovation and impact on society - 10 have been highlighted by the independent judging panels as notable projects in different infrastructure sectors.

 

They are:

Water - The Venice MOSE Flood Barrier, Italy;
Power - Green Power Express, USA;
Oil & Gas - Project Mthombo oil refinery, South Africa;
Renewable energy - Incheon Tidal Power Project, South Korea;
Rail - TAV high speed rail link, Brazil;
Roads - Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge;
Other transport - Panama Canal extension, Panama;
Healthcare - CRCHUM P3 research centre, Canada;
Education - King Abdullah University of Science & Technology, Saudi Arabia;
Other Social Infrastructure - Greater Manchester Waste, UK.

 

The projects considered are at different stages of development. However, the judges were consistently impressed by the ambition which these projects demonstrate. They address major social concerns in a bold manner, despite huge engineering challenges.
