“We are pleased to have been selected as DIRE’s contractor of choice, and are proud to continue our partnership with DIRE on this landmark project,” said HLG CEO and managing director José Antonio López-Monís.

Construction works on the new contract are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of this year and completion is targeted for Q3 2017.
