September 2018

Saudi-based Zamil Steel Construction Company (ZSCC) said it has secured a supply contract worth SR13.9 million ($3.7 million) from Saudi Constructioneers for the Riyadh Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) project in the Central Province.

A subsidiary of Zamil Industrial Investment Company, ZSCC, said as per the agreement, it will supply and erect more than 1,600 tonnes of high-strength structural steel with intumescent and cementitious fireproof coatings, including checkered plates with protective coatings.

The BRT, part of the King Abdulaziz Public Transport System Project owned by the Arriyadh Development Authority in Saudi Arabia, is a fast-track undertaking comprising many components. It will require an extraordinary level of attention to detail due to complex safety and security requirements that must be completed within a challenging time frame, said ZSCC.

In both function and design, this system is envisioned to complement the Riyadh Metro.
