Mott MacDonald is awarded mega consultancy contracts for power and water distribution frameworks, Abu Dhabi

Mott MacDonald has been awarded power transmission and water consultancy contracts totalling AED 90million (£15millon) by Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) which will provide a solid workload for the global management, engineering and development consultancy’s water and power distribution professionals in Abu Dhabi over the next three years.

The contracts are for consultancy frameworks for power in both the Central and Western regions and for water in the Eastern region of Abu Dhabi Emirate. The framework contracts will involve the improvement, reinforcement, extension and development of water and electricity distribution networks in new areas being developed by different government bodies such as the Abu Dhabi Municipality, and private development projects including islands in the three regions.

Specifically, through the frameworks, Mott MacDonald’s professionals will conduct studies, surveys, preliminary and detailed design, preparation of tender documents, tender evaluation, construction supervision and commissioning. Works will cover electrical networks including overhead lines, underground as well as submarine cables and substations up to 33kV, and water distribution networks - ranging in size from 300mm to 1200mm in diameter - including storage reservoirs, pumping stations and submarine pipelines to private islands.

Mott MacDonald has a strong track-record of delivering power transmission and distribution projects in the Middle East including in the Western and Central regions of Abu Dhabi. In the Eastern region, the new framework will include some of the emirate’s largest infrastructure projects such as Capital District – the new administrative centre and seat of power for the whole country, the Abu Dhabi airport expansion, as well as MASDAR which aims to be one of the world’s most sustainable urban developments and for which Mott MacDonald is already leading on infrastructure consultancy services including detailed design for all water and wastewater utilities.

Ian Clarke, Mott MacDonald’s Middle East Managing Director said, “This is great news and we are absolutely delighted that ADDC, already a key client, has chosen Mott MacDonald for these prestigious appointments. This is a great tribute to the excellent performance and skills of my power and water colleagues here in Abu Dhabi and in the wider Mott MacDonald Group.”

The Letters of Award were received on 22 April 2010 and the project teams will be lead by Peter Hall, Mott MacDonald’s Middle East manager for water and wastewater and Milorad Ilic, Mott MacDonald’s Abu Dhabi manager for transmission and distribution.
