Schrobenhausen (euro adhoc) - The BAUER Group, an international construction and
machinery manufacturing concern, has signed a Letter of Understanding with the
Ministry of Water Resources of Iraq in connection with the visit of Philipp
Germany´s Federal Minister of Trade and Industry, to Baghdad. This document
announces that the company will be awarded the contract for the Mosul Dam
remediation project, subject to further contractual details being agreed.

The bid relating to the construction of a cut-off wall to seal the dam,
involving a contract value of some EUR 1.9 billion, has been selected for final
negotiation. The project is scheduled to take around six years to complete.

Professor Thomas Bauer, Chairman of the Management Board of BAUER AG, comments:
"A contract on this scale would represent a major challenge for our business,
but equally a major opportunity. It will take great efforts over the coming
years to master this technically demanding project. We are fully convinced,
however, that our wealth of experience in dam projects and range of machinery
will enable us to meet the challenge. We expect the contract to be ready for
signing within the next few months, after some final details have been

The Mosul Dam is situated in the north of Iraq, approximately 70 kilometres
from the Turkish border, and is the country's largest. Located on the River
Tigris, it is some 3.6 kilometres long, and supplies water and electricity to
the city of Mosul as well as to extensive agricultural areas. Construction of
the cut-off wall has become necessary because the ground beneath the dam is
becoming increasingly water-permeable.
