Besix to work on Ajman sewerage plant next month
Firm has two-year deal to expand sewerage treatment plant in Al Jurf
Besix has said it is due to start work on the expansion of the main sewerage treatment plant in Al Jurf, Ajman, next month.
The Belgium-based contractor will carry out the project over a two year period for Ajman Sewerage (Private) Company Limited.
While in Al Saja’a, Sharjah, it began a two-year contract in May to design, construct, test and commission a 40 bay tanker and sewage treatment plant for the Directorate of Public Works.
Olivier Crasson, executive vice president, business development Middle East, said the firm was keen to expand its work in utilities, a growth sector in the Northern Emirates given the federal investment in social housing.
“The projects we are pursuing are the projects we believe we have the competitive advantage. For example, jetties, marine works, LNG terminals and utilities,” he said. “We can’t go to Umm Al Quwain to build 100 houses because we will then be competing with local contractors. It’s not going to work.”
