Spanish construction giant OHL said Monday that its Judlau subsidiary has won a contract to overhaul and replace lines providing gas and electricity services on the island of Manhattan for 86 million euros ($110 million).
The services involved are the gas and electricity provided by New York utility Consolidated Edison, Inc.
The contract is related to the one that the New York Department of Design and Construction awarded to Judlau last January for $239 million to renovate the water distribution system with the installation of 13,500 meters (44,260 feet) of new pipes in the Upper West Side, Midtown West, West Village and Little Italy neighborhoods.
In those areas, Con Edison has gas and electricity lines which, directly or indirectly, are affected by work being done on the water distribution system.
For that reason, Judlau has taken over the design and execution of all works necessary for the construction, relocation, protection, maintenance, modification, adjustment and reconstruction of all affected Con Edison services. EFE
