Darwish Engineering Emirates has won a US $92.6 million (AED340 million) contract for infrastructure works on the Mina Al Arab development.

RAK Properties launched the $2.7 billion flagship development in May 2006. When complete, the mixed-use development based in Ras Al Khaimah will include residential, hospitality and leisure components and is intended as a tourist attraction in the Emirate.

Employed as the engineering contractor, Darwish will provide a complete package of infrastructure works for the project. The scope of works includes state-of-the-art wastewater treatment and collection works, drainage works, high and low voltage electrical works, street lighting, potable water networks and telecommunications works.

Infrastructure works are due to begin by the end of May and be completed in 18 months.

RAK Properties md Mohammad Sultan Al Qadi commented on the announcement: "We wanted to deploy a contracting company that can measure up to the quality standards and targets of this project. We are confident that Darwish, with its history of delivering quality and on-time results, is the right choice for Mina Al Arab."

Spread over 2.8 million m2, Mina Al Arab will include nine themed and two eco-hotels, with an estimated total 3,500 rooms. The development will also have a range of residential villas and waterfront apartments, retail facilities, food and beverage outlets.
