Greek TERNA wins $36.8m Iraq hospital contract.
Greece's TERNA S.A., subsidiary of the GEK TERNA Group, has been awarded a turnkey contract to construct a 100-bed hospital in Basra, Iraq, equipped with a further 22 rooms for special care.
The design and build project consists of a general hospital covering a built area of 18,000m 2 , including 2,000m 2 for a staff residence, complete with all electromechanical facilities, medical equipment, furnishings, external surfacing and landscaping.
The hospital will comprise intensive care units (ICU), operation theatres, diagnostic services, acute medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics, disaster medicine and medical education system.
The project, TERNA' s first in Iraq, is being carried out through the Governorate of Basra on behalf of the Ministry of Health. It is expected to be completed in January 2015 at a contract price of $26.8m.
With the award, the company's backlog has passed $1.32bn. Founded in 1972, TERNA has always been focused on major and complex infrastructure projects, a role which has continued following its merger with GEK S.A. in 1999 to form the GEK TERNA Group.
