Drake and Scull wins contract in Abu Dhabi for utilities work
Drake and Scull Water and Power (DSWP) has won a contract for the entire development works at the residential compound located in Khalifa A City, Abu Dhabi.
The firm was awarded the district cooling works at the same compound and will now begin work on infrastructure such as sewer lines, irrigation, telecommunications services, fire fighting, sub stations and all related civil works.
“This contract win marks the eighth for DSI in 2010, bringing the total value of the projects awarded to date to AED 1 billion. Reaching such a milestone so early in the year has exceeded our expectations,” said Khaldoun Tabari, CEO and vice chairman of DSI, “These results are a testament to our progressive growth strategy and such achievements assure us that we are on the right path with our plans for 2010”.
“One of the motivating factors for us in deciding to form a business stream dedicated to managing and controlling Infrastructure, Water and Power (IWP) works was the surety that we would continuously have a demand in the market to cater to – this has indeed been the case till now due to the non diminishing demand for water and power, which are the basic elements needed in any community,” Tawfiq Abu Soud, executive director of DSWP commented.
