Arabian MEP announces substation and mall awards
Existing clients hand A-grade Qatari contractor repeat business
Qatari-based contractor Arabian MEP has announced it has won a clutch of project awards including several new substations under the Qatar Power Transmission System Expansion Project and a shopping mall in Wakra.
Both awards are repeat orders from the company’s existing clients, with the substation projects involving several 66/11 kilovolt (kV) substations and 220/132/11kV super-substations at various locations throughout Qatar.
Arabian MEP will execute the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), smoke extract and ventilation, lighting and small power, lightning protection, and plumbing and drainage services work on the substations.
Meanwhile, the mall project in Wakra was awarded to Arabian MEP following the failure of another contractor to perform on the project, according to the company.
Arabian MEP had successfully completed the Gharaffa Mall on time for the same client, who then asked the company to take over from the failed contractor on the Wakra project.
The company added that it does not “undertake such abortive works [but], due to the client’s repeated request and [our] excellent business relationship, we obliged”.
Vasanth Kumar, CEO of Arabian MEP, said: “Since we have successfully completed over 135 substation projects over the past one decade, obviously our clients prefer to engage us again and again due to our expertise, infrastructure and dependability.
“After taking account of new substation awards, we should exceed well over 150 substation projects, which further consolidates our position as a market leader in this sector.
“We have a solid track record in MEP project delivery, wherein all our committed projects during the past one and half decades of operation have been successfully completed and delivered, thereby earning a very good reputation in the Qatari market which brings in all these repeat orders."
