Cofely Besix Facility Management (CBFM) has been awarded a three-year services contract by Abu Dhabi Ports Company at its largest port and industrial zone.
Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) is the flagship project of the Abu Dhabi Ports Company. Covering an area of approximately 420 square kilometres, it consists of a world-class offshore port and an integrated industrial zone.
Under the terms of the deal, CBFM will focus on the day-to-day operations and maintenance of the storm and ground water pumping stations, as well as the sea water inlet/outlet facilities. Coordination with the port authorities and stakeholders is one of the key roles in relation to the sea water cooling system, which requires regular under water inspections and cleaning duties.
As the contract covers the infrastructure systems for the port, Abu Dhabi Ports Company also requested that CBFM carry out a comprehensive asset condition survey as part of the mobilisation plan, which was completed along with all remedial works within the first two months.
This is the first port contract for CBFM in the Middle East.
