Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing health and safety inspections on major roadworks and traffic management sites.

Jacobs’ core services on this project include monitoring compliance with legislation; checking for adherence to guidelines; reporting on recurring issues; and developing advice notes on such issues. Jacobs is also providing corporate support for occupational health and safety.

Jacobs has worked with TII for several years, providing a variety of health and safety advisory services. Under the new contract, Jacobs continues to undertake temporary safety measures and other inspections and provide advice to the TII as a single supplier.

Jacobs Engineering Group also received a contract from Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) for front end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Waste Heat Recovery Project at the general utilities plant (GUP) at Ruwais Refinery.

The GUP, with a capacity of generating 650 megawatts of power and producing 14 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD) of water, serves the Ruwais Industrial Area and the residential complex located on the Arabian Gulf coast, approximately 240 kilometers from the city of Abu Dhabi.

Jacobs has been contracted to provide FEED services that focus on improving efficiency at the GUP to enhance power generation and water production, while reducing adverse environmental impacts.

The additional power and water is expected to cater to the increased demand resulting from the on-going expansion of the Ruwais Industrial Area and residential complex.
