Black & Veatch Expands Support for Middle East Clients
February 27, 2012To further strengthen support for clients in the United Arab Emirates and other Middle Eastern countries, Black & Veatch has moved its operations to a new Dubai location. The new operation is part of the company’s growth plan for the region, which also includes an office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Black & Veatch has been serving communities in the Middle East since the 1920s, undertaking projects that enhance quality of life: power generation and oil and gas to support economic development, and water and sanitation to improve health. The new operation enhances the company’s ability to provide local support to further the development of critical power, water and oil and gas infrastructure in the region.
Black & Veatch chairman, president and CEO Len Rodman said, “Understanding that water and energy are inextricably linked is crucial for modern infrastructure planning. This is especially vital in arid areas such as the Middle East. We bring together Black & Veatch’s globally recognized energy and water expertise in one location and combine it with our integrated project team approach. This allows us to better meet the needs of local clients.”
Dubai-based professionals from Black & Veatch’s Energy, Water and Construction & Procurement divisions have relocated to the new operation in Dubai’s Internet City. It provides an operations base for planning and execution for both professional services and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects.
Black & Veatch is a global leader in the consulting, engineering, construction and operation of what the world needs now and in the future in the crucial areas of energy, water and telecommunications and in providing up-to-the-minute services in the fast changing federal and environmental markets. Founded in 1915, the employee-owned, $2.3 billion company operates out of more than 110 offices worldwide and has completed projects in more than 100 countries.
