Jordan: BAM Completes Aqaba Port Construction

BAM International, the operating company of Royal BAM Group active outside of Europe, and its local partner MAG have successfully completed the construction of the new port in Aqaba, Jordan, for Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC), a second port in line with the country’s economic master plan.

Together with its Jordanian joint venture partner MAG, BAM was responsible for the design and construction of four new berths (in total approximately 800 metres quay wall), revetment works, a breakwater, marine services, pontoons and a slip way. Furthermore land reclamation and dredging works (800,000 m3) as well as the construction of two intake pipes and one outfall pipe was included in this €65 million contract.

Last year BAM completed the container terminal for ADC en APMT in Aqaba and the company is currently building the  Aqaba New Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal, eighteen kilometres south of Aqaba for ADC. The LNG Terminal forms part of ADC’s plan for developing  Aqaba’s Energy Ports. The Government has tasked ADC to develop Jordan’s energy intake capabilities to ensure a consistent supply of energy fuels such as oil, LNG and LPG.
