Four Bahrain projects win Meed Quality Awards
Manama, January 17, 2011
Four Bahrain projects have won the Meed Quality Awards for Projects, an independently-judged excellence recognition competition for projects completed in the GCC.
The winning projects are the Bahrain Petroleum Company’s (Bapco) desulphurisation project in the oil and gas category; the Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) potline upgrade programme in the industry category; the Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) carbon capture project in the sustainability category; and the Khalifa Bin Salman Port and Industrial Area in the transport category.
Edmund O’Sullivan, chairman, Meed Quality Awards for Projects, said: “Bahrain’s national projects embody the highest standards in all the five areas that the quality awards are designed to promote. All those who designed and built the projects truly deserve to be proud of their achievement.”
Projects nominated for Meed Quality Awards were required to demonstrate excellence in economic and social master-planning; architecture and design; as well as engineering, construction and sustainability.
The winners of the national awards have been recommended by members of the Meed Quality Awards Projects judging panel. The judges are independent professionals representing each GCC state.
Abdul Majeed Al-Gassab, president of the Bahrain Society of Engineers and the Bahrain representative on the judging panel, said: “The winning projects represent key sectors of Bahrain’s economy. They involve long-term thinking, careful planning and outstanding execution.”
The awards will be presented to the teams behind the projects at a gala dinner on March 22 at the Ritz Carlton Bahrain. – TradeArabia News Service
