Corrosion protection materials have been picked for Dubai’s $107.3m (AED394m) Shindagha Bridge construction project. Ducorr will deliver a cathodic protection system (CPS) for the scheme.

In a statement, the company said its role as the cathodic protection specialist is “to ensure the durability of the parts of bridge that require corrosion protection”.

Part of the $1.37bn (AED5.1bn) Shindagha Corridor project, Shindagha Bridge’s design has been based on an infinity sign. HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, unveiled the construction scheme this May.

Commenting on the contract win, Hassan Sheikh, managing director of Ducorr Middle East, said: “It is truly a great honour for us to be a part of the Shindagha Bridge Project, as Shindagha is one of the oldest and historical areas of Dubai and was home to the late HH Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai from 1912-1958.”

Belhasa Six Construct, part of the Belgian BESIX Group, announced this May it had won a contract to work on the Shindagha Bridge.

In a statement, the company said it had been appointed as the project’s infrastructure contractor.

Ducorr is a Sharjah-headquartered supplier of corrosion control services for steel tanks, pipelines, and marine infrastructure.

Its project portfolio in the UAE includes CPS delivery for an Abu Dhabi National Oil Company distribution project in Ras Al Khaimah Depot and the Dubai Water Canal.

For the latter project, Ducorr implemented a $367,000m (AED1m) contract that saw it deliver CPS for reinforcing steel within the canal’s diaphragm wall.
