Consultant Black & Veatch is expanding its operations in the Middle East by moving into a new office in Dubai, the firm confirmed today.
The new office in Dubai’s Internet City will support Black & Veatch’s work for clients in the United Arab Emirates, and other Middle Eastern countries. The opening is part of the company’s growth plan for the region which also includes an office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
“Understanding that water and energy are inextricably linked is crucial for modern infrastructure planning,” said Black & Veatch chairman, president and CEO Len Rodman. “This is especially vital in arid areas such as the Middle East.”
Black & Veatch has been operating in the Middle East since the 1920s. Current projects include the $120M (£78M) Wadi Dayqah Water Supply Scheme in Oman and twin 660 MW heavy fuel oil thermal power plant in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia.
