Engineering, procurement and construction firm Amec Foster Wheeler has opened a new office in Oman to expand its operations in the region.
The firm plans to use the site to assist the Omani Sultanate and develop projects with the Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Co. and Oman Tank Terminal Co.
“I’m delighted that we are bringing our global expertise and experience to Oman, to support our customers in the country, as well as help build local engineering capability for the future. The opening of this office is testament to our commitment to the country, and to the region as a whole,” said Nick Shorten, president of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Upstream Capital Projects.
The firm also recently said it won a contract to provide front end engineering design for Berkeley Energia at its Salamanca Project uranium processing plant, in western Spain. The project follows an earlier definitive feasibility study carried out by Amec Foster Wheeler and is expected to outline detailed breakbulk transport requirements for the construction of Salamanca plant.
Amec Foster Wheeler three key business units covering engineering, project delivery operations and power equipment. Work on the Salamanca study will be carried out via its mining subsidiary, MDM Engineering.
