The Special Economic Zone Authority in Duqm has signed an agreement with Boskalis Westminster for the construction of the liquid bulk berth project at Duqm Port.
The OMR 199.1 million agreement stipulates that Boskalis will carry out detailed engineering designs, construction of marine infrastructure and dredging and reclamation works, while Worley Parsons Engineering will oversee the engineering and construction works of the project.
Works will include the excavation of 26 million m3 of material for the deepening of the basin and track channel at the port, which leads to the liquid dock to reach 18 meters.
Additionally, a secondary wave breakwater will be developed, along with a 1 kilometre quay wall.
Once the berth is complete, oil tanks for bulk materials and warehouses will be built by Duqm Refinery on the reclaimed land, to export refined products from Duqm Refinery and petrochemical industries area.
The berth will be able to handle naphtha, jet fuel, diesel, high sulfur fuel oil, LPG, coke and sulfur.
