Connecting continents

In related company news, RSK Tanzania’s Edward Ezekiel, environmental manager and deputy country manager, has been seconded to the NEOM environment assessment project in Saudi Arabia in the Middle East as an environmental assessment specialist. NEOM (new future) refers to the planned crossroads city in north-western Saudi Arabia. The $500-billion futuristic megacity is planned to incorporate smart-city technologies and function as a tourist destination. Edward will work with colleagues from the Saudi Arabian government and third-party companies “in raising environmental obligations to satisfy the necessary requirements and controls for issuing environmental licenses, permits, and approvals for the NEOM project,” according to the Kingdom’s official press release.

Edward’s role involves coordinating the effective, high-quality and timely provision of environmental baseline surveys and monitoring programmes required to support NEOM’s ambitious and compressed development programmes. He will continue to support RSK Tanzania. He follows his colleague Regan Riwa, who was also seconded to the project. Regan recently returned to Tanzania after having completed a 10-week assignment during which he worked with RSK business WRc on inspecting an existing water pipeline using state-of-the-art technology. “I gained a lot of experience in the pipeline inspection process from upstream to downstream, including chambers. I was also exposed to Saudi Arabia’s culture, and I’m thankful to RSK for this great opportunity.”
