Salini Impregilo inks $955m Kuwait housing project

KUWAIT, July 5, 2016

Salini Impregilo, an Italian specialist in the construction and civil engineering business, has signed a $955-million contract with the Kuwait government to develop an urban residential development in the capital city.

The contract, which was signed by Minister of State for Housing Affairs Yasser Abel, will have a consortium led by Salini Impregilo and including Kolin of Turkey develop the largest city in Kuwait that can house nearly 400,000 residents.

Part of the South Al Mutlaa Housing Project, the city will be located on a 12,000-hectare area 40 km northwest of Kuwait City.

“Though big, the project to develop the infrastructure of the city is expected to be implemented in a record time thanks to the extensive experience of Salini and Kolin and the cooperation by PAHW (Publich Authority for Housing Welfare),” stated Abel.

The project involves the construction of 150 km of roads and related structures, lighting infrastructure, water distribution, rain-water gathering and sewage systems, and other civil works necessary for the distribution of electricity, installation of telecommunications networks and traffic control.
