Contractor will provide MEP services to projects in Qatar and India
Drake and Scull International, the Dubai based MEP firm, announced on Monday that it had signed two MEP contracts worth $40.5mn for projects in Qatar and India.
The projects include a $14.9mn deal for a hotel apartment project and a $10.8mn district cooling plant, both in Qatar. The $14.7mn Indian MEP contract is for a residential tower project, said Khaldoun Tabari, CEO of Drake and Scull International.
“Qatar remains a key strategic market for DSI in the region and we expect a stronger momentum of project awards next year as we have not seen many contracts materialize in 2012. The new MEP project award in India is the first for us in the residential sector and we aim to further expand in this sector,” he said.
“Our Water & Power operations are engaged in many tenders across the country and in 2013 we expect further growth for DSI in the Indian utilities sector through Passavant Roediger, our specialized global Waste Water and Water Treatment German Subsidiary,” Tabari added.
Mobilisation on site for the three projects is underway, he said.
The hotel apartment project will be scheduled for completion in February 2014, while the district cooling project will finish by November 2013.
The Indian residential project is also scheduled to be completed by November 2013.
