UAE-based facilities management firm Farnek has been awarded an initial 15-month Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing (MEP) contract for IMG Worlds of Adventure, the world's largest indoor theme park, which is due to open in August.
The contract, which will start immediately, entails MEP maintenance of the full IMG Worlds of Adventure site that spans 1.5 million square feet, including the food and beverage, retail and cinema areas.
Farnek also holds the maintenance contract for the tallest building in the world, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.
Markus Oberlin, CEO of Farnek, said: "We are extremely proud to partner with IMG Worlds of Adventure as this extensive project highlights our core technical and critical competencies.
"From both an operational and commercial perspective, it is essential that IMG Worlds of Adventure offers its customers the safest and most exciting experience, with minimal downtime of the rides and attractions.
"Although the rides themselves will be serviced by specialist operators, Farnek will support them by offering MEP maintenance in the immediate vicinity and throughout the site," added Oberlin.
Lennard Otto, CEO of IMG Worlds of Adventure, said: "We look forward to working together as we continue to progress towards the opening of IMG Worlds of Adventure this August."
Situated within City of Arabia, IMG Worlds of Adventure will be Dubai's first international theme park.
It brings together two renowned global brands Cartoon Network and MARVEL and introduces original concepts, IMG Boulevard and Lost Valley - Dinosaur Adventure, to provide a mesmerizing immersive theme park experience.
With a daily capacity of up to 30,000 people, IMG Worlds of Adventure will feature a range of rollercoasters, rides and attractions, as well as themed retail stores, dining venues and a 12-screen Novo cinema.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.
