We were also owner’s engineer for a 1720-megawatt combined-cycle gas turbine power plant. We advised on plant design and supervised construction to achieve high standards of quality, and coordinated the combined-cycle commissioning and testing.
In the oil and gas sector we were recently awarded a five-year engineering services consulting contract by Al Khafji Joint Operations, Saudi Arabia: a joint venture between Aramco Gulf Operations Company and Kuwait Gulf Oil Company. The contract is for maintenance and development of the 40-year-old Khafji oil field. In addition to production facilities, the field has shipping, offices, housing, and other facilities.
Mott MacDonald will provide feasibility studies, preliminary engineering design scoping papers, and detailed design. We will give technical support during tenders and develop front-end engineering design for other industrial engineering projects.
