Deerns returns to Kuwait for new project
Deerns Group and its local partner Al-Nabhan Engineering Consultancy have signed a consultancy agreement with the Kuwaiti Directorate General of Civil Aviation to provide supervision services for the implementation of technical facilities at Kuwait International Airport.
This project is one of the largest undertaken by Deerns in its 90-year history - the total contract value amounts to approximately $35 million.
The project will be carried out over a period of five years, with the work headquartered at Deerns’ local office in Kuwait.
Local expertise and logistical support will be provided by Al-Nabhan, with specialist support from Deerns offices in the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe.
For the development of specialized communication, navigation and surveillance systems as well as meteorological systems for air traffic management, Deerns will collaborate with the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR).
Deerns has won this project in a competitive bidding process that started early 2017.
The firm has worked in Kuwait International Airport before, providing the design of technical facilities for the airport’s new terminal building.
