Vinci, AMC JV wins 2 Saudi contracts
London, September 25, 2012
A joint venture of Vinci Construction UK and Al Muhaidib Contracting Company (AMC) has won two separate contracts in Jeddah with the Saudi Arabian National Water Company.
The contracts, with a combined worth of over GBP110 million ($178 million), are for the design and build of the Briman Strategic Water Reservoir and the Al Khumra Lifting Station.
Forming part of a major water initiative recently launched in Saudi Arabia, the water reservoir will be a two-year project and will involve the design and construction of a 1.5 million cu m water storage facility, as well as a year of operation and management of the reservoir.
Over a 12-month period, the treated effluent lifting station will be designed, procured, and constructed, after which a one year operation and maintenance contract will follow. The station will collect treated water from existing plants into an underground wet well and pumping station.
"The National Water Company has embarked on a robust program to improve and develop the water and wastewater services in major cities in the kingdom which includes Riyadh, Jeddah, Makkah and Taif, with a total budget allocation of 20 billion Saudi riyals," said chief executive officer of the National Water Company Loay Al-Musallam.
"The company has succeeded in implementing a large number of strategic projects within this allocation including the creation of strategic reservoirs, transmission lines, constructing new pumping and lifting stations, household water and sewage services and the rehabilitation of existing pumping stations", he added.
Commenting on the contract wins, Ivan Norris, managing director of the Gulf region for Vinci Construction UK, said "We are delighted to be working with AMC on the two National Water Company initiatives. These projects play a crucial part in the water infrastructure in the country and we are pleased to use our expertise to deliver the projects." - TradeArabia News Service
