The Memorandum of Understanding will see FBR and the UAE’s ministry identifying opportunities for the introduction and adoption of FBR’s robotic construction technology, and further solutions and services to serve the construction sector in the UAE.

FBR announced in a press release that they will exchange information and collaborate in relation to the application of modern building methods, smart support systems, and other construction technologies.

Managing director and CEO of FBR, Mike Pivac, said, “This MoU reiterates our commitment to the GCC region by establishing a framework for cooperation with the UAE Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure.”

He added that FBR and the Ministry also intend to collaborate on the demonstration of the utility and the effectiveness of the Hadrian X and other robotic technologies to various stakeholders in the UAE through pilot building programs in Australia and/or the UAE.

FBR’s Gulf director, Karan Savara, said, “It is excellent to see the culmination of the work over the past three years come to fruition. With our office established in the Dubai market in 2018, we have a firm intention to offer our solution to the region’s construction challenges.”
