A new entry to the 2019 Construction Week Power 100 is the president and chief executive officer of Korean Stock Exchange-listed Hyundai Engineering and Construction (E&C), Dong-Wook Park.

The South Korean engineering giant awarded an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) sub-contract to French ropeway transportation company Poma Group for the 250m Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest observation wheel. Worth between $50m and $100m, the contract covers the delivery of 48 high-tech capsules for the wheel, which will open on Meraas’s Bluewaters Island in time for Expo 2020 Dubai, in October next year.

Hyundai E&C was the main contractor for Kuwait’s Sheikh Jaber Causeway, a 48.5km-long bridge that was built at a cost of $2.6bn (KWD790m) to reduce the travel time between Kuwait City and Subiyah New Town.
