Current projects include an investigation into rising groundwater in Riyadh, updating hydrogeological maps and identifying ways to reduce the water level.
We were also owner’s engineer for a 1720MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant. We advised on plant design and supervised construction to achieve high standards of quality and co-ordinated the combined cycle commissioning and testing.
In the oil and gas sector we have recently been awarded a five year engineering services consultancy contract by Al Khafji Joint Operations, Saudi Arabia - a joint venture between Aramco Gulf Operations Company and Kuwait Gulf Oil Company - 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. The consultancy will give technical support during tenders and develop front end engineering design for other industrial engineering projects.
