"For the Riyadh Metro, we have been picked to provide emergency lighting services for three of the project’s lines," Ansari said.

"The contract is worth $6.7m (SAR25m), and we have started working on it." 

TSES, a part of UAE-headquartered Albatha Holding – which is chaired by Sheikh Ahmed Mohammed Sultan Al Qassimi – has had a presence in the kingdom for the last six years.

Moreover, TSES has also worked on the new Jeddah Airport in the country, as well as the Madinah Airport.

Ansari also detailed TSES's consolidation activity, as well as its future technology plans – which include counter-drone systems, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) – during his interview with Construction Week
