London-based IKAR Holdings, which is a global ecosystem consisting of a multi-tiered entrepreneurial investment house focused on investments, M&A, Joint-Ventures, and the creation of new entities and assets across different sector groups, have released a statement today announcing the collaboration agreement. According to the statement, the parties have agreed to collaborate and mutually co-invest in order to provide elite consultancy and expert project management services in the fields of construction, EPC, oil and gas, power and energy, health sector, IT, tourism, turnkey projects, and others with a focus on the bilateral relations between Saudi Arabia and Türkiye.
CEG, which is a privately owned group headquartered in Riyadh, is a leading engineering and architectural group in Saudi Arabia and the region. Founded nearly 60 years ago, the group is today involved in most of the prominent projects from NEOM to many other multi-billion projects in the country. Dubai-based The Diamond Consultancy provides high-value-added consultancy services to its clients, especially in the Middle East and Asia.
“OUR FIRST PRIORITY WILL BE TO ATTRACT TURKISH CONTRACTORS”
Vice President of IKAR Holdings Sertan Aycicel stated, “Today we laid the ground for a very successful collaboration for all parties involved. In particular, Saudi Arabia is developing mega-projects, which have global recognition. Our first priority will be to attract Turkish contractors to participate in outstanding construction projects in Saudi Arabia. Given that Turkish contractors are globally recognized for their professional performance, we believe that such companies will make a significant contribution to the successful completion of Saudi projects. I want to thank the leadership of CEG and The Diamond Consulting for appointing us as their global partner.”
