Technip, as leader of a consortium with Dodsal Engineering & Construction of Dubai, has been awarded by Abu Dhabi Transmission & Despatch Company (TRANSCO) a lumpsum turnkey contract, worth a total of approximately USD 610 million, for phase 2 of the Fujairah water transmission system in the United Arab Emirates.
