Leading construction group Carillion said one of its units has won a four-and-half-year contract extension from Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for its integrated facilities management services in Oman.
Carillion Alawi, the UK firm’s market leading business in Oman, said as per the £240-million ($311 million) contract, it will provide integrated facilities management services at 12 locations across the sultanate.
The group’s partnership with PDO began in July 2013 when it was signed up to deliver an integrated facilities management service, focused on providing safe, cost-effective services across the PDO concession estate, which includes the oil major’s main coastal estate, and covers an area of some 100,000 sq km.
The range of services being delivered comprises engineering maintenance, projects, catering and environmental services, including cleaning, housekeeping, pest control, landscaping and linen and laundry services, says the company.
Under this contract extension which began last month, Carillion Alawi will continue to focus on delivering safe, cost-effective services by driving cost reduction and efficiency through reducing waste, improving productivity and reshaping service delivery, it adds.
Commenting on the win, Carillion CEO Richard Howson, says: “We are delighted to have secured the contract extension for PDO that reflects the strong partnership we have developed with the Omani group.”
“It also reinforces our commitment to supporting PDO through the efficient management and operation of its critical infrastructure, using our sector leading ability to provide facilities management services to the oil and gas sector across the Middle East, including operating in the challenging desert environment where the vast majority of PDO’s assets are located,” he adds.
