Aqaba New Port

The Jordanian government wanted to develop a large multi-use port south of Aqaba. The project was launched as a Build, Own and Transfer (BOT) and a consortium led by KGL Investment Co. prequalified and, ultimately, became one of two preferred bidders. The project included the following elements:

• Dredging and reclamation
• A marine service harbour
• The KEMAPCO seawater intake and outfall extension
• Revetments and a breakwater
• A grain terminal
• A general cargo terminal
• A RoRo terminal
• A ferry Terminal

The scope of work included acting as Technical Advisor to the BOT consortium for planning of the optimum port layout and selection of the most cost-effective quay wall and breakwater solutions, and tender design to enable the D&B contractor (Athena) to come up with a construction price for the BOT consortium.
  The scope of work included harbour layout planning, concept and preliminary design of the marine works including landing berths, fingers, gangways, fuel station, inspection platform and breakwater structures.
