Major Middle Eastern bridge contract for BCSA member
The deal will see the South Wales-based company designing, fabricating and delivering four atlas steel deck modular bridges to aid a major highways extension.
Chris Droogan, CEO of Mabey Bridge said: “This is a very important contract as Mabey Bridge builds on its already excellent international reputation and pushes into new and important territories.
“Qatar is a country working towards an extremely exciting vision for its future, and we are pleased to be a part of delivering that vision.”
Ghazi Joueidi, General Sales Manager of Mabey Bridge in the Middle East added: “The terrain and environment in Qatar is very harsh and the construction challenges considerable. The country needs infrastructure that is tried and tested and capable of delivering a robust solution during a period of dramatic change.
“The Atlas Bridging System will provide the capacity to support the important development work within Qatar.”
The Mabey Bridge contract is with Qatar Building Company and the steel bridges will be used on the construction of highway 55, creating a direct link between the Mesaieed, Industrial City and the planned city of Lusail.
Work on the highway started in November 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2014.
