Zamil Steel wins contract in New Zealand.

Zamil Steel's Towers & Galvanizing (T&G) Division, a unit of Zamil Industrial Investment Company "Zamil Industrial", has been awarded a contract worth SR 88 million for the fabrication and supply of lattice steel towers for the 400kV overhead line of the North Island Grid Upgrade Project in New Zealand, one of the largest electricity transmission construction undertakings in the country since 1960.

The scope of the contract calls for the proto-assembly and load testing of six types of 400kV doublecircuit overhead line towers as well as the fabrication and supply of over 425 towers as part of Transpower's North Island Grid Upgrade Project.

Delivery of the towers is to be completed by the end of 2010. Dr. Abdul Rahman Zamil, chairman of the board of directors of Zamil Industrial Investment Company, said that the T&G Division won the contract in a stiff competition from several Chinese and Indian companies. "Winning of the contract shows the pioneering and leading position enjoyed by his company in the global steel sector," he said.

An alliance between Transpower New Zealand Ltd and Balfour Beatty United Group (NZ) Ltd is responsible for project execution. "The North Island Overhead Line Project contains stringent requirements and guidelines, and Zamil Steel T&G Division was awarded the contract after a very comprehensive evaluation, despite stiff competition from international steel tower suppliers in India and China," states Mohammed Al Shallali, general manager of Zamil Steel T&G Division.

"It is a great honor to have been chosen to provide this New Zealand client with the high quality products and technology needed for construction of this important project." Zamil Steel has recently made substantial investments in its infrastructure, geared toward expanding manufacturing facilities and production capabilities in a concerted effort to meet rising global demand.

Zamil Steel has built an outstanding reputation across regional and international markets based on a record of excellent performance.
