Ducorr, the UAE-based corrosion protection services provider, has won a $107m contract to provide cathotic protection system for the Shindagha Bridge project in order to support the durability and strength of the bridge parts which can corrode over time.
In his comment on winning the contract, Hassan Sheikh, the managing director of Ducorr Middle East expressed the company’s pride to be a part of the major Shindagha Corridor project, adding that Shindagha is one of the central historical districts of Dubai since it is the home of His Highness Sheikh Saeed Al Maktum.
With a design inspired by the infinity sign shape, Shindagha Bridge comes as a part of the $1.37 bn Shindagha Corridor project, a huge project that aims at developing road network that spans 13 kilometers along the Sheikh Rashid, Al Mina, Al Khalej, and Cairo Streets. The project’s development has been commenced in May 2018; it will be developed over five phases and it is due for completion in 2022.
It is worth mentioning that, in May 2018, Belhasa Six Construct – a subsidiary of the Beligum-based BESIX group – has been awarded another contract to develop the infrastructure works of the Shindagha Bridge project.
