Marafiq extends Jacobs PMC deal
Contract will see the firm work on desal, wastewater and power schemes
Saudi Arabia’s Marafiq has extended a deal with Jacobs Engineering Group for the provision of project management contractor (PMC) services, as part of its continuing investment programme in the Kingdom’s utilities sector.
The deal has been extended by one year, with no contract value reported.
Jacobs currently provides services to a range of projects in Jubail and Yanbu, including aspects such as conceptual design, front-end engineering, tender support and construction/commissioning supervision. The projects the firm is involved in include work on the upgrade, expansion and installation of wastewater treatment plants, electricity generation and desalination plants.
“Jacobs continues to grow in Saudi Arabia and Marafiq is an important part of that growth. We are fully committed to building a fully self-sufficient, In-Kingdom capability in Saudi Arabia,” said Jacobs Group VP Mike Coyle.
Marafiq management added, “This contract extension is recognition by Marafiq of the excellent support being extended to Marafiq by the Jacobs team in the execution of Marafiq projects. We recognise the value brought to our business through long-term relationships with companies like Jacobs.”
