Dubai, UAE: Farnek, a total facilities management company, has announced that it has been awarded an initial 15-month Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) contract for what it claims to be the world’s largest indoor theme park – IMG Worlds of Adventure, which is scheduled to open on August 15, 2016, and is wholly owned by the Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group.
The company informed that the contract will start immediately, and entails MEP maintenance of the full IMG Worlds of Adventure site that spans 1.5 million square feet, including the food and beverage, retail and cinema areas.
Situated within City of Arabia, along Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, the theme park, the company revealed, will reportedly be Dubai’s first international theme park, which will bring together two renowned global brands – Cartoon Network and MARVEL, and introduces original concepts, IMG Boulevard and Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure.
With a daily capacity of up to 30,000 people, Farnek highlighted that the theme park will feature an array of roller coasters, thrilling rides and other attractions, bringing the latest in family entertainment to Dubai. The destination, Farnek added, will also offer a variety of themed retail stores, exclusive dining venues and a 12-screen Novo cinema.
“We are extremely proud to partner with IMG Worlds of Adventure as this extensive project highlights our core technical and critical competencies,” said Markus Oberlin, CEO of Farnek. “Although the rides themselves will be serviced by specialist operators, Farnek will support them by offering MEP maintenance in the immediate vicinity and throughout the site.”
Lennard Otto, CEO of IMG Worlds of Adventure, also commented: “Farnek has been chosen for its technical and critical competency and its operational methodology. Farnek already manages a multidimensional portfolio and so has proved it can handle projects of varied scope. We look forward to working together as we continue to progress towards the opening of IMG Worlds of Adventure this August.”
