Boskalis Signs Major Duqm Port Deal

The Special Economic Zone Authority in Duqm (SEZAD) and Boskalis Westminster (Oman) LLC today signed an agreement for the construction of the liquid Bulk Berth Project at Duqm Port.

The new agreement, worth approximately $517 million, prepares Duqm Port to export liquid refined products and enhance its value in national economy.

According to the agreement, Boskalis will carry out detailed engineering designs, construction of marine infrastructure, dredging and reclamation works, while Worley Parsons Engineering will oversee the engineering and construction works of the project scheduled to be ready within 32 months from the date of awarding.

Under the deal, 2.4 km of the 4.6 km of secondary wave breakwater will be developed and reclaimed for the construction of the liquid quay, and the dual berth marina will be constructed with accessories and navigation equipment.

The project calls for the excavation of approx 26 million cubic meters of material in order to deepen the port’s basin and channel to 18 meters. About 5 million cubic meters of the material will be used to reclaim and fill the site dedicated to the quay.

The agreement also provides for the construction of the 1 kilometer quay wall and installation of buoys and navigational devices.
