The proposed investment is a loan to support the development and operation of a greenfield bulk terminal in the Yangon region of Myanmar (the Project or the Terminal). The Terminal will have an effective capacity of 1 million metric tons (MT) and will include a jetty (230m) and an onshore complex with 40,000 MT of silos and 20,000 MT of grain warehouses. The Terminal will be operated under a 50-year Land Lease Agreement which includes built-operate-transfer type concession terms with the Myanmar Port Authority. The Terminal will primarily serve captive demand of agri commodities of Lluvia Limited (Lluvia) in addition to third party demand.
The Terminal will be built on Plot number 30 and 31 in the Thilawa Port Zone (TPZ). The approximately 8 km long TPZ is located on the eastern bank of Yangon River in the Kyauktan Township. TPZ is located roughly 16 kilometers downstream from the Yangon city port area and approximately 35 kilometers from the city by road.
The Terminal is being developed by Lluvia of Myanmar and Kamigumi Co, Ltd. (Kamigumi) of Japan who will own the Project company in the ratio of 75:25. Lluvia is a joint venture between Capital Diamond Star Group (CDSG) who owns 85% and Mitsubishi Corporation (Mitsubishi) who owns 15%. CDSG is a diversified conglomerate in Myanmar with operations spanning retail, real estate, health care, and financial services. Mitsubishi is a global integrated business enterprise, and Kamigumi is one of Japan’s largest integrated logistics companies and terminal operators.
