Germany's Bauer Wins $2.6 billion Contract for Mosul Dam

German construction and engineering company Bauer said it signed a letter of understanding on a $2.6 billion [3.1 trillion Iraqi dinar] contract to refurbish a dam in Iraq.

"We expect the contract to be ready for signing within the next few months, after some final details have been clarified," Chief Executive Thomas Bauer said in a statement on Thursday, according to a report from Reuters.

The project, the company's biggest ever, is scheduled to take about six years to complete It will involve Bauer building a cut-off wall to seal the Mosul Dam in northern Iraq. The ground beneath the 3.6 kilometre-long dam has become increasingly water-permeable, Bauer said.

One Response to Germany's Bauer Wins $2.6 billion Contract for Mosul Dam

    Cesena, 04th November 2011 – With reference to recently published news regarding a supposed

    “Letter of Understanding” on behalf of the Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources for the execution of
    the works regarding the Mosul dam in Iraq, with the current notice the TREVI Group considers
    necessary to point out that there is to this day no evidence of the described facts and / or acts
    legally relevant, regarding the international public tender.

    “From the referred facts -states the Managing Director Gianluigi Trevisani -no legal and binding
    award on behalf of the Iraqi government bodies has yet been issued and announced; the
    negotiating process is to be considered still on due course and the final decision is under scrutiny
    of the designated Iraqi inter-ministerial body.

    Should news regarding the above mentioned project be issued and confirmed officially by the Iraqi
    Government and after appropriate checks on the respect of the public tender procedures, the
    Company will acknowledge it in accordance with the respect of the confidentiality clauses of the
    tender documents. This is also in accordance with the company’s policy to announce the awards
    of price sensitive contracts only when finalized.

    The final awarding of the Mosul project, which still remains a significant opportunity, will not
    affect our growth perspectives in the various sectors and will not influence our growth in
    geographical areas and markets already described in our strategic profile. The capital increase
    related to the convertible bond issued in November 2006 does support this development path.
