SNC-Lavalin, a fully integrated professional services and project management company, has been awarded a district cooling services contract for King Salman Park by Green Park Cooling Company, a subsidiary of Saudi Tabreed.

As part of the 27-month contract, SNC-Lavalin will provide engineering, procurement, and construction services for the Park’s district cooling plant with an ultimate capacity of 60,000 TR.

The services also cover the complete design, installation, automation, testing, and commissioning of the plant. The design will allow the DCP to be executed in three phases without interrupting the plant operation.

Mr. Mohamed Youssef, Senior Vice President, Projects and O&M, Engineering Services, Middle East and Africa, SNC-Lavalin, said that, “SNC-Lavalin has built a successful track record of delivering high-performing, technologically advanced, and reliable district cooling services for the past two decades across the Middle East region.”

“King Salman Park is a significant development that will improve the quality of life in Riyadh in line with Saudi Vision 2030’s goals of a vibrant and healthy society. We are proud to build on our strong relationship with Saudi Tabreed and deliver this project to the highest quality and safety standards by providing our engineering excellence and digital solutions,” Mr. Youssef added.

The development of detail design will utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) and state-of-the-art data analytics tools to monitor progress and ensure efficiency in project delivery.
