The boss of one of Turkey's biggest MEP contractors has revealed ongoing political upheaval in the Middle East has forced his firm to limit its business activities in the region.
Anel founder and chairman of the board, R?dvan Çelikel, told MEP Middle East that he was shying away from countries embroiled in “endemic political turmoil” and instead focusing on the "safe zones in the Arabian Gulf, namely the UAE and Qatar."
A number of Middle Eastern Countries such as Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yeman face uncertain futures as they are gripped by civil war and insurgency.
Çelikel, who founded the firm in 1986 and has been working in the Middle East for almost a decade, said he will instead to focusing on winning projects in the rail sector and those related to the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
He said:" As Anel has successfully completed the electrical and mechanical construction of the Baku Olympic Stadium, we believe the upcoming stadium projects present big opportunities for us over the next 12 months.
"We also look forward to railway projects, especially in Qatar. Anel recently completed the Marmaray Railway Tunnel Project in Istanbul. Again as Anel is one of the few MEP contractors with electromechanical experience in railways projects, we see big opportunities in this segment."
