Bahrain's Ministry of Works and Housing has awarded Germany’s Siemens a $13 million contract to provide the Bahrain Formula One Race Circuit project with technical infrastructure for its upcoming automotive events.
The scope of the contract includes the design, supply, installation and commissioning of such systems as the fiber optic network, digital video storage, communications network, video surveillance, public address system, race control management, signaling system, telecommunications (PABX), security management, time-keeping, SMATV and computer systems.
Siemens was additionally awarded a contract worth more than one million dollars for the Formula One Data Network.
Scheduled to be fully operational in April 2004, the Bahrain Formula One Race Circuit is the first of its kind in the Arab world. Located in Sakhir, in the south of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Bahrain Race Circuit includes a challenging Grand Prix course for Formula One cars and will also provide the Middle East with a venue for all other forms of car and motorcycle-racing besides hosting a wide range of automotive activities. — (menareport.com)
