Mannheim-headquartered construction and engineering firm Bilfinger’s regional arm Bilfinger Middle East has secured a three-year blanket maintenance contract from Abu Dhabi Transmission & Despatch Company (TRANSCO), with the contract being applicable from 2019 to 2022.

The German firm did not reveal the value of the contract, which it said was worth "multi-million dollars".

As part of the contract, Bilfinger Middle East will carry out routine maintenance, equipment repair, replacement, and new equipment installation of sodium hypochlorite plants — which includes generation system and dosing system from process water inlet up to injection points — across Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Northern and Western region in the UAE.

Bilfinger Middle East will also carry out inspection, through which, corrective maintenance — covering repair and replacement — will be implemented by supplying required equipment and performing the required services in a bid to reach full-capacity.

Speaking about the contract, managing director of Bilfinger Deutsche Babcock Emirates, Christopher Barker, said: “This agreement is a leap forward in our affiliation and we only see more optimistic opportunities ahead.”

Meanwhile, president and chief executive officer of Bilfinger Middle East, Jon Rokk, said: “We are extremely confident in the value that we provide through our maintenance contracts. In fact, our contracts are tailor-made to our client’s needs while upholding the highest standards of safety, ensuring increase in their plants’ reliability and optimising the maintenance costs throughout the plants’ lifecycle.”
