American contractor McDermott wins EPC deal in Saudi Arabia

McDermott has won a “sizeable” engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract from Daelim Saudi Arabia Company for storage tanks by CB&I, which it merged with in 2018.

The US contracting giant said the fixed lump sum contract encompasses the EPC works for four ammonia tanks and nine 'CB&I Storage Tanks' at Saudi Arabian Mining Company's (Ma’aden) Ras Al Khair ammonia plant..

Work on the project will predominantly be implemented from Saudi Arabia using McDermott’s “local capabilities and facilities”. McDermott said it describes the contract as “sizeable” due to its value of $1-$50m
