UAE water project

Technip, in partnership with Abu Dhabi-based Al Jaber Energy Services, has been awarded by the UAE Offsets Group (UOG) the “transmission package” of the Fujairah desalination, power plant and pipeline project in the United Arab Emirates. The transmission package involves the construction of a 185km water transmission pipeline from the Emirate of Fujairah, to the inland city of Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, a 16km pipeline link to the city of Al Dhaid in the Emirate of Sharjah, pumping stations, water storage tanks, and associated facilities. Under the terms of the lump-sum turn-key contract, worth about EUR 495 million, Technip and Al Jaber Energy Services will be responsible for basic and detailed engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of the facilities. Technip’s engineering centre in Düsseldorf will handle engineering, procurement and project management, with support from Technip’s engineering centre in Abu Dhabi for part of the engineering services. Civil construction, erection and other local portions of the contract will be carried out by Al Jaber Energy Services. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2003.
