The AED35m ($9.5m) contract covers supply and deployment of entire mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services, specialised electrical services and railway services across all the APM-related sites.

The APM will be used to link a new fourth concourse, which is currently built after being commissioned by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, to terminal one at Dubai International Airport.

"We are partnering with the world’s leading railways experts."

Drake & Scull Rail operations director Darko Macura said: "We are delighted to secure our first Rail project in the Middle East, and are excited and proud to be a part of the prestigious Dubai International Airport project that combines airport and railway infrastructure."

Work under the contract will also include production and submission of shop/fabrication drawings, and provision of railway-specific services such as signals, traction power, maintenance of area power, compressed air and communication systems as well as minor construction works.

Al Jaber LEGT Engineering & Contracting (ALEC) will serve as the main contractor for development of concourse four at Dubai International Airport.
