Emirates Falcon Electromechanical Company (EFECO) has won a joint venture contract to carry out mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work at the new Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) at the Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The AED878m contract was awarded to a joint venture of EFECO, BK Gulf, and China State.

It was awarded by consortium comprising Arabtec Construction, TAV Construction, and Consolidated Contractors International, which won the AED10.8bn ($2.93bn) contract for the construction of MTB.

"We are pleased with this new contract win, adding to EFECOs already impressive backlog."

As part of the contract, EFECO will be involved in delivering the complex mechanical scope of the project.

Arabtec Holding managing director and CEO Hasan Abdullah Ismaik said: "We are pleased with this new contract win, adding to EFECOs already impressive backlog which has already crossed the AED1bn mark."

Earlier this month, Abu Dhabi International Airport erected the first steel arch of the MTB, a move which marks the launch of the roof structure sequence of the mega gateway.
