TTC and GCPI signed the prime contract on 27 April, 2018 in Dubai. Subsequent to the signing of the prime contract, TTC signed the sub contract agreement with CDPLC as TTC’s preferred shipyard for the construction of these vessels on 2 May, 2018 in Japan.
TTC is a trading and investing company which is also a group company of Toyota. By recognising the potential of CDPLC, TTC decided to collaborate with CDPLC for this project to compete and submit bid proposals in response to a tender floated by GCPI in July, 2017. After the selection of the bid proposal submitted by TTC in collaboration with CDPLC, there were contract negotiation meetings in Basrah, Iraq, and in Colombo, Sri Lanka. These negotiations and discussions were able to strengthen the relationship between the parties to enter in to a successful contract.
