The company has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth $30.6m from Saudi Dhahran Cooling Company, which is a subsidiary of Saudi Tabreed, to expand the existing Aramco District Cooling Plant in Dhahran. It will add an extra 5,000 refrigeration tons (RT), taking the plant's capacity to 32,000 RT.

The second contract is for Central District Cooling Company, which is another Saudi Tabreed subsidiary.

It is also an EPC deal to expand a district cooling network installed at the Jabal Omar Development Company project in Makkah.

This $40.2m contract will see it add a further 10,0000 RT, bringing total capacity to 35,000 RT.

"It gives us great pleasure to serve Saudi Tabreed and its subsidiaries on these strategic and critical infrastructure projects," said Hisham Mahmoud, president of SNC-Lavalin's infrastructure division. "We are proud to be one of the leading E&C companies operating in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with approximately 6,000 employees in the Kingdom."

Saudi Tabreed is an affiliate company of Abu Dhabi's National Cooling Company, Tabreed, which operates from three main sites:- Dhahran, Makkah and the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh.
