Hill International to manage Al Ain irrigation project

Al Ain Municipality has contracted construction consultancy Hill International to oversee the implementation of an irrigation masterplan in Al Ain.

Al Ain Municipality has contracted construction consultancy Hill International to oversee the implementation of an irrigation masterplan in Al Ain.

In a five-year deal worth approximately US$6.4 million, Hill International will provide project management services on the project.

Under the masterplan, the current pumping and irrigation zones in Al Ain are to be regrouped in such a way that Al Ain will be divided into 18 zones, and the outside area into 11. Each zone will have its own reservoir, pumping station and central irrigation control system.

The US$163 million implementation phase will see 21 new reservoirs built taking the total number of main reservoirs in Al Ain to 30.

Hill project management group president Rouf Ghali described the programme as a "critical improvement" to water infrastructure in the region.

The implementation begins in January 2009 and is expected to be complete by the start of 2013.
