ADPC awards $130m infrastructure works contract to CCC

Dubai: Onshore works at Abu Dhabi Ports Company's massive Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone (KPIZ) received another boost with the award by ADPC of a $132m contract to Consolidated Contracting Engineering & Procurement S.A.L (CCC), headquartered in Athens, Greece.

The deal is for construction, fit-out, testing and commissioning of the civil and structural works for Industrial Zone Area 'A' primary infrastructure (North), the first of three construction packages that will provide the facilities for an industrial centre catering for a wide range of heavy, medium and light industries.

Construction will begin immediately and is scheduled to end in July 2012.
"We look forward to working with our partners Consolidated Contracting Engineering and Procurement S.A.L (CCC) on this world class project, with their commitment to delivering on time and to budget," said ADPC ceo, Tony Douglas.
CCC will also carry out the works for six kilometres of dual 3- and 4-lane carriageways, an interchange, utilities and associated works to link the onshore port to the Industrial Zone.

Phase 1 of Khalifa Port will open in the fourth quarter of 2012, replacing Abu Dhabi's congested Mina Zayed port and will have an initial capacity of 2 million TEUs and 9 million tons of general cargo.

By 2030, KPIZ, located midway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, will comprise 420 square kilometres of prime industrial land organized into integrated clusters for aluminium, steel, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, life sciences, food and beverages, glass, paper and other major sectors.

Then, Abu Dhabi's new multi-purpose offshore port will also boast one of the largest integrated industrial zones in the world.

ADPC has already awarded $1.16bn of contracts in the past 15 months on the $24 bn megaproject.
