Keller Grundbau GmbH Middle East and Africa managing director Tomasz Michalski and Bahrain general manager Jeyaprakash Elango congratulate His Majesty King Hamad and His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince Prime Minister, on the opening of Bahrain International Airport’s new passenger terminal complex.
“Keller Grundbau GmbH is very proud to be part of the Bahrain International Airport Modernisation Programme, completing piling works successfully,” Mr Elango said.
“Keller has completed more than 20 projects at Bahrain International Airport since its inception in 1973, including the Airport Modernisation Project, Gulf Air Hangar, Airport Taxiway, Bahrain Aviation Fueling Company (Bafco) Complex, air traffic control tower, extension of the terminal building, aircraft aprons, baggage sorting, radar replacement, fuel farm complex and many more with the majority of the work involving bored piles and vibro-replacement.”
Working with high safety standards, the company has achieved more than 1.5 million Lost Time Injury (LTI) free man hours and its stop work policy implementation is highly appreciated by consultants and clients, said safety manager Rabeek.
Meanwhile, operations manager Sarfaraz and site manager Jeyasingh revealed the project was completed in a challenging environment based on the company’s vast experience with airport-related projects.
The company traces its origin back to the small town of Renchen in south-west Germany, where in 1860, Johann Keller founded a company mainly to construct water wells and in the 1930s invented the ‘Vibro’ process for compacting sands at depth.
Keller is proud to complete 160 years of its presence globally and is renowned for providing innovative, cost-effective solutions to ground engineering and foundation problems.
It is also introducing Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) in the region and the company’s design team is always ready to assist clients in formulating technically-sound and cost-effective solutions to foundation engineering problems.
