Their latest new contract win is an agreement with Oryx GTL (Gas to Liquids), leaders in GTL technology.
The turnkey project will involve the sub-contracting of the civil works, IT and fire detection solutions to approved Oryx vendors. Power to the building for the entire rental term will also be supplied. This is the largest office installation delivered by Algeco & Byrne, and a 5-year call off order for Oryx means extra modules will be delivered as and when required.
The building consists of 44, 4000KD Modules that will be configured as 22 units per floor in a G+1 configuration. The ground units will be used as an onsite clinic and emergency area whist the upper building is primarily office space.
Modules are currently being assembled for the site and plans are for the building to be up and running by early March. Buildings will be erected within a 14-21 day period. The project will require stringent HSE protocols on site to conform to Oryx HSE Standards.
Jim Muldoon, GCC general manager of Algeco, said,
“We have had a hugely successful year working with Byrne in the UAE which enabled us to expand in Qatar. This latest customer win is testament to this and we are looking forward to delivering solutions for Oryx GTL. The primary challenge of this project will be the coordination and delivery of all of the related activities within a short space of time – however given our experience of similar projects and the quality of our products, we are certain we will be able to deliver.”
Byrne provides rental support for Algeco’s 4000KD and Batex produces, two of the most flexible solutions in the market place at present. Manufactured to European standards, the products have become popular within the construction, education, military and oil and gas sectors, providing solutions for office space, accommodation and storage.
Graeme Clack, Byrne CEO, said, “The relationship between Algeco Byrne in Qatar is going from strength to strength. There are no comparable products in Qatar in terms of quality or flexibility, which means that with Algeco we are able to provide first class building rental solutions to the Qatar market. This agreement with Oryx GTL is the latest success in Qatar and we are looking forward to announcing similar deals as the year progresses.”
The companies have further expansion planned for the upcoming year and already in discussion regarding several other GCC countries.
