Willemen Groep big winner at FIDIC Contracts Awards

On Tuesday evening, Willemen Groep won convincingly at the presentation of the very first FIDIC Contracts Awards in London. We won no fewer than two awards: “Project of the Year” and “Contractor of the Year”.

The “Project of the Year” award was awarded for the APM Terminals MedPort Tangier, one of the most advanced container terminals in the world that we delivered in the port of Tangier (Morocco) last spring. Twelve of the world’s largest remote-controlled ship-to-shore cranes are used to quickly, efficiently and safely load and unload ships with at least 22,000 containers on board. “This project was achieved according to the highest standards of quality and safety and following the contract conditions described in the FIDIC Red Book. Moreover, the terminal was delivered within time and budget and with excellent safety figures”, explained the jury about its choice.

Willemen Groep was then invited to the stage for the second time that evening to receive the “Contractor of the Year” award. The jury praised the proactive and problem-solving approach our group takes during contact with customers and clients. Also appreciated was the way our group uses FIDIC contracts and the importance we attach to the FIDIC principles of cooperation.

A total of 7 awards were presented during the event. Willemen Groep was the only company to receive two. This was indeed an exceptional achievement, made even more special considering we are a newcomer to the FIDIC world. “With this new initiative, we want to increase the visibility of FIDIC contracts and those who use them. The awards are a reward for the best practical examples”, says FIDIC.

Since 1957, FIDIC - International Federation of Consulting Engineers, has been making contracts available for use by employers in the international construction sector. The organisation is based in Geneva, Switzerland, and has members in 104 countries.
