The contract brings the total value of projects awarded to Dh1 billion for the first quarter.

Drake & Scull Water and Power (DSWP), a Drake & Scull International (DSI) subsidiary has won the entire utilities development works at the residential compound in Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa City.

According to DSWP, it was earlier awarded the district cooling works at the same compound, and it will now begin relevant infrastructure works that include sewer lines, irrigation, telecommunications services, fire fighting, sub stations, and all related civil works, such as roads and paving.

“This contract win marks the eighth for DSI in 2010, bringing the total value of the projects awarded to date to Dh1 billion,” said Khaldoun Tabari, CEO and Vice Chairman of DSI. “Reaching such a milestone so early in the year has exceeded our expectations. 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.”

Tawfiq Abu Soud, Executive Director of DSWP, commented: “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.”
