The Emirate of Sharjah decided to develop waste to energy facility, which will be the first in the UAE. It will use up to 37.5 tonnes of unrecyclable solid waste an hour to generate 30MW of electricity, supplying electricity to 28,000 households and diverting over 300,000 tonnes of waste from the landfills.

Constructions Industrielles de la Méditerranée (CNIM) has been appointed to design, build, and operate the facility. The company tasked Projac team with the design review.

Approximately 800 Accacia trees have been delivered and planted in Riyadh as part of Green Riyadh city forestation programme. The trees came from local nurseries in the Kingdom, however it is expected that the deliveries from abroad will follow, as 7.5 million of various types of trees will be needed in this unprecedented project.

The project targets to increase vegetation coverage in Riyadh from the current 1.5% to 9.1% in 2030, improving the quality of life for the residents by connecting them to nature and creating new ecosystems in the city.

The programme has a holistic approach – forestation project in the Middle East and the one of that scale requires a sophisticated watering systems, mobilization of the nurseries in Saudi and abroad that can deliver specific plants to survive harsh summers, logistics of the works and many other aspects, making this project one of a kind.

The Saudi National Company of Aviation also known as Oxford Saudia, has an aviation academy at King Fahd International Airport (Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) with various stages of development.

Oxford Saudia has already executed phase 1 of the apron suitable for code A planes (1.5 ha approx), with shaded structures, but it needs to connect this apron to the Taxiway J through the construction of the new Taxiway J4, perpendicular of Taxiway J. Expansion of this Apron is also part of the master plan (2 ha approx).

Egis has been tasked with design consultancy services and construction supervision of new Taxiway J4, apron extension and associated maneuvering areas at Dammam International Airport.

Detailed aeronautical risk assessment / simulation to be done due to the existing physical constraints from the existing shaded structures (aircraft max span limitations).

Oman Power and Water Procurement Company  (OPWP) is responsible for the procurement of new capacity and output for the Main Interconnected System and the Salalah Power System in the Sultanate of Oman.

There is no better way to celebrate completion of a project than to adore it with bushes and trees!

Projacs provided Project Management Services for National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) Headquarters building in Kuwait City, which is now fully operational.

This architecturally striking tower located in Sharq district is not only functional, but fulfils the requirements of a green building – with expected 34% energy reduction and 40% of water consumption reduction.

The team planted number of trees to surround the building, provide so needed shade and further enhance its beauty.

Five brave volunteers from Egis and Projacs in Dubai: Ahlam, Kasia, Garyth, Rob and Sita planted mangrove trees in Al Zorah, Ajman.

The Al Zorah Mangroves, which occupies over 5.4 mln sqm is recognized as a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention. The most common tree found in Al Zohra is Avicennia marina, commonly known as the gray or white mangrove due to the color of the bark. The trees grow to a height of 3-10m, creating a complex ecosystem for native marine and plant life and shelter for resident and migratory birds.

Recent studies indicate that mangroves can sequester four times more carbon than rainforests can, which makes them a very important tool in tacking the pollution. They are also vital in reducing flooding and erosion from storms, by creating the strong root connections.

Nowadays, the mangroves are at great risk, due to raising water levels and salt level in the water. The planting programms help in restoration of the mangrove forests, especially in the economically active areas, where the water is more polluted.

Egis opens local entity in Saudi Arabia

At the beginning of 2020 we celebrated the establishment of Egis Saudi Engineering Consultancy (ESEC).

With Christian Laugier as a Chairman and Ayad Habboush as General Manager, ESEC is already actively engaged in tenders within our all business domains. We are now in a good position to successfully offer the whole range of our services and we are confident we will continue to thrive in Saudi market, with many awards and achievement on national level.

Together with Projacs, ESEC can fulfill the most complex offerings. Projacs, involved in many PMCM projects, continues to secure prestigious awards, such as Makkah and Taif Municipality (SAR57mln and over 51 staff), Riyadh Amana (SAR90 mln with over 100 staff), all of which are challenging engagements due to Saudisation programs and training requirements.

KSA has undergone a fundamental transformation and continues to implement changes almost on daily basis, easing the business conduct, introducing iconic projects and relaxing business constraints. 

One of the milestones was the opening the country to tourism by allowing on-arrival tourist visa – this major change led to immediate improvement of tourism sector. Entertainment projects, refurbishment of historical sites, new cities, sport centers created major opportunities to be targeted.
