Committee to Pursue Oman Dam-Building Projects

Iran will establish a joint committee with Oman to explore the possibility of building dams in the Arab country.
This was announced by Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian after a meeting with Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Mohammed al-Shihi, Oman’s minister of regional municipalities and water resources, in Tehran on Tuesday.
The committee will be formed to examine the technical and engineering requirements for dam-building in Oman, IRNA reported.
Chitchian underlined the “successful” track record of Iranian firms in Oman’s market and said, “Iranians will make a stronger presence in the field of water management in Oman. Exchanging technologies in the water treatment industry is also on the agenda.”
Shihi described the talks with Iranian officials as “positive” and said, “We seek more extensive cooperation with Iran to build dams and power lines.”
Iran is the world’s third leading country in dam construction, with some 200 contracting companies, 70 consultant firms and 30 corporations as well as hundreds of hydroelectric manufacturing units operating projects in 40 countries.
Over the past three decades, it has built 600 dams, an average of 20 a year, to irrigate farms and provide electricity.
