Subcontract signed for Abu Dhabi based pumping station
Drake & Scull Water and Power L.L.C (DSWP) has announced a newly secured contract worth AED470million for the design review, procurement and construction of MEP and instrumentation works for the strategic tunnel enhancement programme (STEP) pumping station in Abu Dhabi.
“Sustainability and environmentally sound engineering practices are crucial and pivotal elements to the successful completion of the project. Our expertise in environmental engineering and our partnership with Odebrecht will allow us to put in place eco-friendly engineering models and structures to protect the environment and contribute to the development of a sustainable infrastructure system in the Emirate,” commented DSWP managing director Tawfiq Abu Soud.
Developed by Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company (ADSSC), STEP will be one of the longest gravity-driven wastewater tunnels in the world designed to reduce the pressure on the current Emirate Sewerage system and to expand its future capacity, say DSWP.
