Arabtec's engineering unit wins $42m DM sewer contract
Dubai Municipality awarded the subsidiary of the regional construction heavyweight a variation contract to work on sewers and drains
Arabtec Engineering Services has won a $42.2m (AED155m) contract variation for its work on sewerage and drainage infrastructure in Dubai.
The subsidiary of regional construction heavyweight Arabtec Holding was awarded the contract variation by Dubai Municipality for existing social infrastructure work in the Al Khawaneej area.
"Consistent with our objective to diversify our business, this award builds on our infrastructure backlog and longstanding relationship with Dubai Municipality," said group chief executive officer of Arabtec Holding, Hamish Tyrwhitt.
Arabtec Engineering Services' sewerage and drainage contract is a 15-month deal, and a variation of its DS189 contract.
It came several months after the company won a $117.8m (AED433m) contract to work on another DM project: the DS188 Jebel Ali Industrial Sewerage and Drainage System.
Scope for this project includes setting up 65km of sewer, and 91km of stormwater networks, which will require 17km of micro-tunneling work.
Meanwhile, the turnaround at Arabtec Holding continues to go from strength to strength, after the company reported a strong set of half-year trading results.
