Zamil unit wins $35m deal to supply steel lattice towers

Jeddah, September 9, 2014

Zamil Towers & Galvanizing Company, a fully owned subsidiary of Zamil Industrial Investment, has won a SR134.5 million ($35.8 million) contract from the Middle East Engineering and Development Company (Meedco) in Saudi Arabia.

Under 16-month the deal, Zamil will supply lattice towers and gantries for the 380kV double circuit overhead transmission line between Tabuk Bulk Supply Point (BSP) and Tabarjal BSP in the northern region of Saudi Arabia, said a statement.

The company is set to begin supply of the towers and gantries in the fourth quarter of the year and shipments will continue until the completion of the project, which is expected to be near the end of the fourth quarter next year.

It will supply more than 26,000-tonnes of lattice steel towers and low level gantries for the construction of the 380kV double circuit overhead transmission line between Tabuk Bulk Supply Point (BSP) and Tabarjal BSP-owned by the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC).

The project will link the generating plants in Tabuk and Tabarjal and will streamline the operation of the kingdom’s electrical power system by facilitating the exchange of electricity between regions.

Osama Bunyan, chief operating officer at Zamil Industrial, said: “This contract award makes Zamil Towers & Galvanizing a key participant in the infrastructure development of Saudi Arabia. We anticipate the smooth co-operation with Meedco and SEC as we work to provide the finest products and services for use in this important endeavour." - TradeArabia News Service
