Iraq signed a contract with Pell Frischmann Ltd. for the design of a $85 million water project in the western Al Anbar province, a local municipal official said.
The U.K.-based consulting company will draw
designs for a new water station in Hadeetha, which will pump 4,500 cubic meter
of water an hour to feed surrounding towns, within two years, Basim Naji said by
phone today. Pell Frischmann will also design an upgrade to an existing water
station in the same district which pumps 1,500 cubic meter an hour, he said.
The Iraqi government is seeking foreign
investment and expertise to rebuild its infrastructure and energy industry
damaged by decades of conflict and sanctions. Iraq holds the fifth-largest
proven crude reserves, including Canada’s oil sands, according to data from BP
