Moroccan Houar Enterprise Company wins road construction contracts in Senegal

(Ecofin Agency) - The Moroccan construction firm Houar Enterprise Company has secured contracts worth nearly €100 million (about $108 million) to build two roads in Senegal. According to the Moroccan media Les Inspirations Éco, the first deal worth €70.2 million involves building an 11-kilometer highway connecting Gandon and Saint-Louis in the northwest. This project will be co-funded by the Senegalese government, the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA), and the Kuwaiti Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED).

The second contract focuses on the construction of the "Rice Loop," a 51-kilometer road valued at €29.5 million. Financing will come from the African Development Bank (AfDB).

Both roads are aimed at connecting and promoting economic development in the northern regions of Senegal. Houar Enterprise Company won these contracts against several candidates who participated in an international tender, including the local construction firm Compagnie Sahélienne d'Entreprises (CSE), the Tunisian company Soroubat, and the Chinese groups China Civil Engineering Construction Corp, China Railway Seventh Group, and Weiha International Economic & Technical Cooperative.
