Bechtel to open UAE engineering solutions hub

05.14.2013  |  HP News

Bechtel officials say the new center, to be located in the UAE, will allow them to provide customers with innovative engineering solutions more efficiently and cost effectively.


Bechtel will establish a global center of engineering excellence in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) initially focused on rail and marine engineering projects, the company announced on Tuesday. 

The center uniquely positions Bechtel to provide customers with high-quality, innovative engineering solutions more efficiently and cost effectively, according to company officials.

“Rail and port infrastructure go hand-in-hand and are the lifeline for transporting goods around the world from major petrochemical, power, and mining facilities,” said Amjad Bangash, managing director of Bechtel’s global rail business.

“The global demand for rail and port infrastructure will increase substantially during the course of the next 10-15 years," he added. "This center provides customers around the world with a comprehensive solution for a successful project right from the start.”

Bechtel said the center will draw upon its global experience and expertise in the design and construction of railways and ports, and will offer services from master planning studies through to engineering execution.

“Much of the growth for new railways and ports is in the Gulf region," said David Welch, Bechtel’s regional president for Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. "We have worked in this region for more than 70 years, and our decision to base the center in the UAE represents part of our ongoing commitment to the region."

The new center will open in the third quarter of 2013.
