Worldwide industrial services company Harsco Corp. last week said it secured three new contracts worth about $7 million to support large-scale infrastructure and construction projects in Europe and the Middle East.
Under a new contract in Dubai from Todini S.p.a., one of the world’s leading infrastructure contractors, Harsco will supply a range of rental formwork systems for use in constructing roads and bridges in the Jumeirah Lake Towers area, a development consisting of 87 mid- and high-rise towers being built along the banks of a network of new man-made lakes and waterways.
Near Paris, Harsco has been awarded a large contract by French construction giant Bouygues to provide rental formwork for office tower Tour Mozart. The building will become headquarters for Bouygues Telecom, one of the largest mobile phone companies in France.
In Germany, Harsco’s rental formwork will be used for cast-in-place concrete construction of the Rhein-Galerie, a new shopping mall being built in Ludwigshafen, an industrial city in southwestern Germany.
“These contracts underscore Harsco’s substantial international balance and major client relationships serving multiple market sectors,” said Harsco chairman and CEO Salvatore Fazzolari. “The inherent mobility of our rental stock allows us to redeploy our equipment wherever necessary to meet our customers’ growing needs on an expanding geographic basis.”
Harsco’s domestic rental scaffolding, forming and shoring products division, Patent Construction Systems, based in Paramus, N.J., is No. 16 on the RER 100.
