Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a case study on how a US$621 million power plant was developed in East Asia. The scope of the paper covers the project environment in which the electricity industry is privatized, the method of dividing the project into 16 design-build (DB) work packages to encourage domestic contractors with limited capabilities to participate in the project, and the planning and control system. It was found that six of the 16 work packages were successful, eight were satisfactory only, and two were unsuccessful. The analysis of the problems encountered provides lessons to be learned for application to future large-scale and complex projects. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd and IPMA. All rights reserved.
