KBR offers logistics support to Abu Dhabi project
KBR has been awarded a contract by the Tourist Development and Investment Company (TDIC) to provide logistics consultancy services to support the development of Sir Bani Yas island as part of the Desert Islands projects.
Desert Islands will be one of the world's largest environmentally friendly island tourism destinations. This nature-based destination consists of a group of natural islands off the coast of Abu Dhabi's western region.
At the heart of the Desert Islands is the 87 km² Sir Bani Yas Island. A master plan for the island is being developed with the goal to preserve ecosystems and marine environments. As such, more than 90% of the island is being dedicated to nature and wildlife.
KBR will provide the logistics consultancy and technical expertise to manage the supply of materials, vehicles, marine transportation and personnel for the project.
"This project will build on our previous successes on large-scale developments in the region, and utilize our global expertise and resources, overlaid with our sophisticated systems and processes," said Colin Elliott, president, KBR Infrastructure and Minerals. "KBR looks forward to providing the client high quality service, with accountability, integrity and discipline at the heart of our day-to-day operations".
