Zamil Steel Company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Eiffage Genie Civil, a member of Eiffage Infrastructures Group specializing in infrastructure projects, to cooperate and share expertise on infrastructure steelworks projects in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.

Vincent Papait, managing director for the Middle East at Eiffage TP International, and Nawaf Al Zamil, vice president of Zamil Steel, signed the MoU at the Zamil Steel headquarters in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

The MoU will enable the two companies to cooperate on major infrastructure development and steelworks projects and share knowledge and expertise in the engineering and management of existing and future projects in the GCC region.

Areas of coordination will also include technical and engineering assistance in several prefabricated structural steel building projects and other areas of shared interest in order to reach and put forward the best strategy. The MoU will enhance the ability of both organizations to achieve their respective objectives and mandates.

According to Al Zamil, the MoU benefits both companies as well as countries within the GCC region planning new infrastructure development. "The cooperation between Zamil Steel and Eiffage Genie Civil is expected to maximize the expertise in all aspects of steel infrastructure projects — from engineering to production technology and project management — that we are able to offer to our clients," he said. "We look forward to combining our knowledge and providing world-class, sustainable solutions to infrastructure development issues across the GCC region."
