Saudi Arabia's Tadawul-listed Al Yamamah Steel has signed a $106.7m (SAR400.3m) contract with Spain's Europea de Construcciones Metalicas to supply steel for a solar park project in Dubai.

The four-year contract, signed off on 3 March, 2019, will see the steel manufacturer delivering its products from September 2019 under an extendable, 26-month deal. The project's formal name was not included in the missive by Al Yamamah, but the company said that its delivery will support Phase 4 of the development. 

In a separate statement, the steel-maker said the commercial start-up of Al Yamamah Solar Power Systems' factory will begin in Q2 2019, with the facility to produce and deliver the steel structure system that will make up the concentrated solar plant (CSP) component of the Dubai solar park project.
