Bapco, the Bahrain-based oil refining company, was last night named as the 2014 winner of the annual MEED Quality Award for Projects in the GCC.
The company won for its $125m wastewater treatment plant.
“This project involves building on a brownfield site and delivers no financial benefit to Bapco,” said MEED Quality Awards for Projects judging panel chairman Edmund O’Sullivan. “What secured the award for Bapco was the fact that the company was prepared to invest so much in a new system using advanced technology to make sure that pollution of the Gulf was minimised.”
A total of 32 projects were in the running for the award. Previous winners were Bourj Khalifa (2011), Pearl GTL of Qatar (2012) and the new Dubai International Airport concourse (2013).
