Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Company (JTC) partnered with Chicago Maintenance & Construction Co. to install and maintain a 4MW power project at a major construction site in Qatar.

The Kuwait-based company will manage the entire power project at the construction site, from design and load calculations, to installation and commissioning, regular operations and maintenance.

The installation will power the entire site that spans over 43,100 sqm.

"Over the years, we have built a strong reputation in the Kuwait power rental market, backed by our proven track-record of high standards of customer service, reliability and efficiency," JTC group general manager Adel Kohari noted.

"We are looking at more opportunities to further expand our business in Qatar and other GCC countries. Our proven competencies and customer service standards will serve as key differentiators that will fuel our growth and geographic expansion,” he added.

Ken Muir, senior quantity surveyor at Chicago Maintenance & Construction Co., said: "JTC Power Rental's proven track record in successfully running large projects in Kuwait and our strong existing relationship with JTC Equipment Leasing in Qatar were the major factors that led us to choose the company for this project.

The 4MW power project is critical to the construction site, and we are confident that our partnership with JTC will help us in the smooth completion of the project."

JTC is associated with four core activities - ports, contract logistics, equipment leasing and power rental. These divisions serve a variety of market segments across a large geographical region in the Middle East.
