IBBC MEMBERS PROFILE
For the past decade Mott MacDonald has been quietly playing a significant role in developing essential services and assisting in improving the quality of life for people across southern Iraq. We are a US$2bn global consultancy providing engineering, management and development services across 12 core business sectors. We have over 16,000 staff and work in 140 countries.
Mott MacDonald has worked in Iraq since the late 1950s, helping deliver projects in the power, water, sanitation, telecommunications, buildings, transport, bridges, airports and oil and gas sectors. Contacts developed with local consultants, contractors, planners, municipal authorities and other clients have endured to this day.
Since 2003, our experience and network of contacts have been of major advantage, helping us deliver effective emergency relief and reconstruction projects. We are a registered company with the Iraqi Ministry of Commerce and its offices are staffed principally by Iraqi professionals.
Initial reconstruction work was geared to providing essential services – power transmission, water supply, sanitation, bottled gas and fuel stations. Today, we are primarly involved in oil and gas and power projects, including PMC services to Gazprom Neft in the Badra field, detail design services to CNPC in Maysan, Biodiversity studies to Shell in the Majnoon field, and consulting services on a single to combined cycle conversion in Erbil power station.
Today Mott MacDonald has a site-based presence in the Badra field and Erbil and maintains our strong connections in Basra. We have pursued a policy of employing Iraqi nationals, providing local opportunities for local people. Our policy is to ensure that local staff receive the same training and benefits of employment as do their counterparts in Mott MacDonald worldwide.
Staff are expected to live by our PRIDE values – Progress, Respect, Integrity, Drive and Excellence – a rigorous ethical code that is a condition of employment for all who work for us. This governs our collective approach to customers and stakeholders, underpins the technical quality of our work and makes explicit our opposition to unethical behaviour.
Mott MacDonald is committed to helping build Iraq’s future peace and prosperity, and to our own long-term future in the country. Iraq still requires huge investment across all core sectors and we believe that, through our broad range of skills and with international inward investment, we can play an important role in improving the quality of life for people across the country.
