- China’s Sinohydro Corporation among the Project’s team
On Oct. 20, Aramco’s Shaybah airstrip upgrade project received the 2020 Project Excellence Award for Europe, Middle East and Africa during a virtual meeting hosted by the Project Management Institute.
The company deployed innovative construction technologies and demonstrated high efficiency and effective leadership, completing the challenging project in 77 days — 4 months ahead of schedule — and with zero incidents.
“This is an achievement that exceeded all expectations,” said Ahmed O. Aredhi, Oil Facilities Projects Department manager. “The early completion was driven by robust logistic planning, technology utilization, and remarkable collaborative effort from all stakeholders working tirelessly to deliver the project in the shortest time possible.”
Led by Aramco’s Project Management team, the project demanded the expertise and dedication of several Aramco entities and professionals, including Aviation, Transportation and Equipment Services, Project Inspection, and Consulting Services departments.
The team was also fully supported by several additional departments and affiliates, including Aramco Overseas Company, Shaybah Producing, Materials and Logistics, Industrial Security, Facilities Planning, Project Management Office Department and of course, the company’s contractor, Sinohydro Corporation.
