ONEIC’s chief executive officer, Rashid Bin Mohammed Al Ghalani, confirmed the contract win in a financial update filed with the Muscat Securities Market.

ONEIC's contract with Mazoon Electrcity Company was the latter's first contract win of the month. But it came after the contractor had already secured three deals in April 2018.

ONEIC was awarded a $7.2m (OMR2.7m) contract by Sultan Qaboos University at the end of April. This contract covered operation and maintenance of electrical and mechanical equipment, as well as civil maintenance of the Sultan Qaboos University Hospital.

ONEIC said it would start working on the two-year contract on 1 July, 2018, and would complete the scope in 2020.

A $9.2m (OMR3.5) three-year contract from Dhofar Power Company was awarded to ONEIC to carry out recovery and default management services.

ONEIC won a $2.4m (OMR940,755) contract from the Muscat Electricity Distribution Company, also for recovery and default management services earlier that month.

The number of contract wins for the business so far this year, six, puts it on track to at least match the total number of new contracts secured last year, 14.
