Oman's Mazoon awards $3m power contract to ONEIC
Oman National Engineering and Investment Company has picked up another contract to build electricity power lines
Oman National Engineering and Investment Company (ONEIC) has been awarded a $2.8m (OMR1.1m) contract to build power feeders for Mazoon Electricty Company.
The contractor will set up a 33kV and a 11kV electricity transmission line for primary power substations in Al Dakhiliyah, a governorate in central Oman.
Work on its one-year contract with national power distributor Mazoon will begin on 16 August.
It is at least the third contract to build electricity transmission lines in Oman that ONEIC has won this year.
Mazoon awarded ONEIC a $5.1m (OMR1.9m) contract to construct electricity power feeders in June. This came a month after ONEIC won a contract worth $70,469 (OMR295, 861) to build an unknown number of transmission lines for Mazoon in May.
Meanwhile, ONEIC has recently appointed a new chief operations officer. Eng Venkata Kiran started his new role on 1 August, and is expected to lead the company's engineering activities in Oman.
