Construction services firm to target UAE, Qatar, Saudi, Iraq infrastructure projects
UAE-based construction services company Belhasa Projects has created a new division to focus on sub-station and high voltage cabling work in the region.
The company said it expects strong growth in infrastructure projects in UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Iraq in 2013 after a better than expected business volume in 2012.
Suleyman Gary Busby, CEO of Belhasa Projects, said: "Diversification has always been our key strategy and we decided to create a new power division on the back of increased interest from the industry for our sub-station and electrical work expertise.
"We have successfully completed electrical works for Asghal in Qatar this year. We also expect a strong growth in infrastructure projects in the region, we have seen strong demand for our sewage treatment and district cooling work in Saudi Arabia and UAE."
Apart from the wet infrastructure and electromechanical works, the company said it has also experienced a good year for its sports and coatings division including a contract for the construction of a jogging track on Palm Jumeirah which opened this month.
Belhasa Projects supplied and installed the 2.2km jogging track including substrate, kerb, asphalt, rubber floor, and various training equipment for 14 exercise stations.
Aquascapes, the swimming pools design and construction division of UAE-based Belhasa Projects, said in September that it had won new projects in Iraq and Maldives.For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
