Paris - Total and China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) have signed a mutual preferred supplier agreement to extend their existing relationship to a worldwide perimeter. CCCC, a fully integrated engineering company, and Total, a global integrated energy producer and provider, are both key players in their respective fields with an extensive presence around the world.
Total currently supplies CCCC with fuels and lubricants, mainly in Africa, while CCCC‘s expertise ranges from design to construction, including financing, civil works, onshore and offshore work, pipeline construction and dredging.
With this new agreement, Total and its affiliates will work toward being CCCC’s preferred partner on a much larger scale, by offering tailored solutions for its projects worldwide.
Total therefore intends to provide flexible, innovative and effective energy solutions to support CCCC’s rapidly growing business. This could include storage facilities, technical support for Total products and a wide range of digital tools, including Optimizer, to help CCCC reduce its Total Cost of Ownership.
Total and CCCC’s complementary geographical footprint will allow both companies to develop new commercial prospects, whether as a customer or supplier of the other. This strategic partnership will provide CCCC and Total with a wide range of opportunities in Africa and beyond. The partners will work together at both the local and global level to address their future market and technology challenges.
“Total is a partner that recognizes the benefits of collaborating across the value chain” said Sun Ziyu, Vice President of CCCC. “This agreement marks CCCC's willingness to work with Total to support its overseas growth in the increasingly demanding construction and infrastructure market. It also demonstrates that CCCC believes that a strengthened relationship with Total is the right approach to develop tailored solutions to meet the challenging infrastructure and construction requirements in the most remote locations.”
“We are very enthusiastic about this new agreement,” said Stanislas Mittelman, Senior Vice President Africa for Total Marketing & Services. “CCCC is aiming to be a worldwide leader in its fields. We intend to accompany them all the way with a broader range of services and a special focus on Africa and Asia, including all the countries associated within the “One Belt, One Road” initiative . By being proactive and customer oriented, Total will continue to develop high-standard energy solutions to remain their preferred supplier.”
