Riyadh Metro Line 3
On July 29, 2013, Impregilo, as the leader of an international Consortium whose members include the Italian company Ansaldo STS, the Canadian company Bombardier, the Indian company Larsen & Toubro, and the Saudi company Nesma, won, with a 18.85% share, a major contract issued by the Riyadh Development Authority for the design and construction of the new Riyadh Metro Line 3 (40.7 km), the longest line of this major project in the Saudi Arabian capital’s new metro network.
The lot assigned to the Consortium is an important part of the broader concurrent project for construction of the new Riyadh metro network (consisting of 6 lines with an overall length of about 180 km), worth a total of about $23.5 billion, in which another two global groups, including some of the largest companies in the world, are awardees for two other mega lots awarded at the same time as the lot awarded to the Consortium, which will be led by Salini Impregilo: one led by the American company Bechtel consisting of Almabani, CCC, and Siemens, and the other led by the Spanish company FCC consisting of Samsung, Freyssinet Arabia, Strukton, and Alstom.
The overall value of the works to be done by the Consortium for design and construction of the entire Line 3 is about $6.4 billion, of which about $5.3 billion for civil engineering works.
The percentage of work completion as at June 30, 2015, was 4%.
