Gammon wins £190m Hong Kong infra work
Balfour Beatty company wins infra work in Hong Kong
Gammon Construction, an infrastructure contractor in Hong Kong in which Balfour Beatty has a 50% shareholding, has won a series of infrastructure contracts worth HK$2.3 billion (£190 million).
A JV between Gammon Electrical & Mechanical and Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions has been awarded a five-year transmission line project in Hong Kong by CLP Power, covering the upgrading of 400 kV overhead line assets and the refurbishment of existing lines as part of the customer’s ongoing lifecycle maintenance regime.
Gammon has also won an MEP contract from MTR Corporation Limited for the building services installations at Hong Kong University Station and Sai Ying Pun Station, which forms part of MTR’s West Island Line extension to the existing network on Hong Kong Island.
The project complements the award of the civils package for the stations to the Gammon-Nishimatsu JV. Works are due for completion in June 2014.
Finally, Gammon has secured a contract for a swimming pool complex in Kwun Tong featuring several Olympic-size pools and ancillary facilities. The complex will incorporate a number of sustainability features, including solar panels for electricity generation for both temporary site facilities and the permanent central supply and a green roof. The contract is also due for completion in 2014.
