Van Heck Supplies Pumps for New Port Project

Van Heck Group will supply eight HK700 pumps to Hyundai Engineering & Construction for phase three of the New Port Project in Qatar.

The pumps will be used, for a scheduled period of 20 to 30 weeks, to return the process water used in dredging through a series of sedimentation ponds back to the open sea.

As well as assisting Hyundai with the engineering and development of the pumping system, Van Heck has shipped a combination of twelve 20 ft and 40 ft containers to Qatar, providing Hyundai with a complete package of pumps, ancillaries and spare parts.

Van Heck supervisors will also be assisting on site with the installation of the pumping system.

About New Port Project

In 2007 His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, initiated the construction of one of the world’s largest greenfield port located south of Doha.

The 7.4-billion USD development will span a 10-square-mile (26-square-kilometer) area and include a seaport, a base for the country’s naval forces and an economic zone.

Developed in three phases, with a container terminal able to accommodate up to two-million, 20-foot (6-meter) equivalent units, the project is scheduled for completion in 2016.
