Our first project in Bahrain

First commercial project in Bahrain

Our first commercial project in Bahrain was the topographical surveying of the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Salman Highway, which we performed with our mobile mapping system.

The project owner is the Ministry of Works and our client is EGIS International, the company responsible for the designing the road and the consultancy activities related to it. The Sheikh Khalifa Bin Salman Highway is one of most important components of Manama’s transport infrastructure and as it is often plagued by traffic jams, our project is considered a high priority national road project. The highway is affected by our project in the length of 24 km, including exits, junctions, nodes etc.

The aim of the project is to widen and refurbish the highway as it is plagued by traffic jams. The total length of highway surveyed is 24 km, including exits, junctions, nodes etc. The most important deliverables required by our client, EGIS International, is the 3D AutoCAD DWG drawing in vector format, which is extract from the surveyed point cloud.

Bahrain subsidiary background

We are now officially registered and licensed and our first commercial project is nearing successful completion.

For a number of years now, Geodézia Zrt. has been looking to expand its activities abroad. One such region of interest is the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC area), which comprises Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

We decided to establish our base of operations for the GCC area in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and registered our branch office in Bahrain. As we have fulfilled all the administrative and technical requirements, we now possess all necessary licenses for realizing surveying works in Bahrain. Our Branch office is situated in the Hoora district of Manama, the capital of Bahrain.

In May 2015, we completed a pilot project for the Survey and Land Registration Bureau (SLRB), which was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our know-how and technological capabilities and overall demonstrate the expertise of our engineering staff.

The technology demonstrated during the pilot project included our RIEGL mobile mapping and laser scanning system, our STONEX terrestrial scanner, our MALA ground penetrating radar and our custom-made drone. We also demonstrated a variety of data processing solutions.

The Management of SLRB was overall impressed with our expertise, cutting-edge technology and the results of the pilot project, strengthening our already good relations and helped raise their interest in further cooperation.
