|Project financing is similar to corporate lending because the total amount that is borrowed is generally far in excess than what the bank is willing to or able to lend to a single company? Some of the types of project financing include energy projects such as gas lines, and laying of electricity cables? Also, construction and infrastructure loans such as toll roads, bridges, tunnels, Magnetic Levitating Rail - Maglev, etc? Also, there is plant construction like electric power, nuclear power, and aircraft leasing, ship construction, etc. In particular, when governments approve large infrastructure projects, a large financing need arises. The main problem is that it is too risky for a single bank to take on the entire exposure. In China, loans in excess of 300 million RMB are generally required to be syndicated among a number of banks. Smaller banks have a lower threshold. In foreign countries, loans generally in excess of 20 million US dollars are usually syndicated. The overall risk threshold depends on the company's credit quality, the size of the bank and bank's existing exposure to the company. If a company is of investment quality, it is usually more advisable that they issue debt in their own name, either in the form of commercial paper or bonds.
