NEOM has completed the technical evaluation of the proposals for the TROJENA dams. The client and the selected contractors are now negotiating the commercial aspects of the project. Earlier this year, NEOM engaged three contractors on an early contractor involvement (ECI) basis. They include a consortium of Saudi Arabia-based Al-Ayuni with Turkiye-headquartered Limak, Beijing-based PowerChina and Italy’s WeBuild.
Constructing three dams together could cost about $2bn. The structures will be used to create the central lake at the TROJENA mountain resort that will host the 2029 Asian Winter Games.
The engineer for the lake is Singapore’s Surbana Jurong. The executive programme manager is the US’ Aecom. US-based Bechtel was awarded the contract to provide project management consultancy services for the TROJENA development at the end of last year. In October, NEOM awarded an SR4.5bn ($1.2bn) infrastructure development contract at TROJENA to a joint venture of the local Al-Ayuni Investment & Contracting and Turkish Limak Holding.
