Thiess to manage Abu Dhabi's building waste

Thiess Services Middle East has signed a 15-year concession agreement with Abu Dhabi’s Centre for Waste Management. 

The A$475m ($309m) deal is the company’s first major contract in the region. Thiess will design and build a recycling plant for construction and demolition debris produced in the emirate. Construction of the plant will be completed within a year.

The project is part of Abu Dhabi’s wider plans to reduce its carbon footprint. The construction waste, which will be recycled by Thiess, would otherwise have gone to a landfill site.

Thiess Services Middle East was established in 2008 to provide waste and utilities management services, contaminated site clean-up and facilities management in the UAE and the wider region.

The company is a joint venture of Australia’s Thiess Services and the local Al Habtoor Engineering Enterprises.
