Company: Ahab Construction Company
Humayun Arvmchy is a top executive at Iranian contractor Ahab Construction Company. The firm is currently working on Line 6 of Tehran’s metro. Construction of the $4bn rail link began with an enormous tunnelling project to bore an 11.7-kilometre underground section that included 10 new stations.
The company began operations in 1947 as a contractor in the water sector, providing new infrastructure to deprived areas in Iran. From dam construction, irrigation and drainage and water mains, the firm expanded into new areas. It now offers full engineering, procurement and construction services, and covers sectors including railway schemes, municipal works, oil and gas, and general construction.
Much of its work is in the Tehran and Damavand areas. The firm’s clients include regional water companies such as Tehran Urban and Suburban Railway Company, the Department of Housing, and South Pars Oil and Gas Company. The company’s goals are to increase the quality and productivity of construction projects in Iran and internationally.
