TAV Group President & CEO Sani Şener has been ranked ninth on the Power 100 list by Construction Week Magazine, one of the most prestigious magazines in the industry which covers the construction sector in the Gulf region, said the company in a written statement on June 10.

Şener became the only Turkish businessperson in the top 10 of 2016’s list, according to the statement. 

The magazine emphasized the TAV projects in the region and also highlighted that despite the flurry of recent project completions in the Middle East, TAV would again be busy with ongoing projects in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. 

“While the list has a symbolic meaning, it proves the success of Turkish engineering, labor and brands in the world’s most challenging markets. We are glad to hear that our Madinah Project was also awarded the airport of the year title by MEED magazine. It is not a coincidence to be presented both of these awards at the same time. It is the payoff for the hard work of almost 54,000 TAV Group employees including engineers, architects, technicians and workers assigned in the projects achieved in the Gulf region, which has become the most challenging market in the world,” said Şener. 

Topping the ENR list in the airport construction industry for the last two years, TAV Construction has undertaken several projects having a total contract value of $18.3 billion since its establishment, noted the statement. 

The company has recently been awarded the construction of the Bahrain Airport following the construction of airports located at the capital cities of Qatar, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

TAV Airports also operates Madinah Airport in Saudi Arabia, while it provides services at the Riyadh, Dammam and Jeddah airports. TAV also has operations at Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the UAE, Doha in Qatar, Salalah and Muscat in Oman and Bahrain.
