The Special Economic Zone Authority in Duqm (SEZAD) has signed two contracts for the Duqm Port in Oman.
One of the contracts will include the construction of four terminals on the commercial pier. These include two for containers with a length of about 1,600m and width of 350m to handle about 3.5M TEUs annually.
Work will also involve the construction of a dry bulk terminal with an annual capacity of about 5M t, a versatile terminal with an annual capacity of about 800,000t, and a port operations area.
The project will be delivered by a joint venture of Turkish SERKA Company and Portugal-based MSF, and is valued at OMR107M ($278M).
The second project, estimated to cost OMR61M ($158M), will include the construction of a fishery port in Duqm. The port will include breakwaters with a length of 3.4km, an 850m-long fishing pier, and a tourist area.
The scope of the work will include the dredging of the harbour basin up to 6m, and the land reclamation to build the port service buildings. The project will be carried out by Galfar Engineering and Contracting.
