The contract between MCA and JED Enterprise Ltd (“contractor”) was signed on on 4 April 2024, and a kick-off meeting to introduce the contractor to MCA, SIRAP2 Project Support Team, and the Design and Supervision Consultant (Egis) was held on 9 April 2024.

As part of the conditions of the contract, the contractor must submit the Contractor’s Environmental and Social Management Plan, Quality Management Plan, Works Methodology, Works Plan, and required insurance certificates before mobilizing and commencing the works.
