Samsung C&T to construct Abu Dhabi sewer

14 February 2011

South Korean trading and construction company Samsung C&T has been awarded a USD 270M contract for construction of a deep sewage tunnel in Abu Dhabi.

The contract was part of the larger 41-km programme of deep-tunnel sewers from Abu Dhabi island to Al-Wathba.

Three tunnel packages were planned for the ‘Strategic Tunnel Enhance Programme’, with two similar contracts already awarded to Italian contractor Impregilo.

Samsung C&T announced that it had been chosen to build the 4m-diameter, 16.1km tunnel by the Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company on 14 February.

The project will link the industrial satellite town of Mussafah with central Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE and should be completed in 43 months, said Samsung C&T.
