Royal Haskoning to design the New Doha Port in Qatar

Royal Haskoning : 12 January, 2009  (New Product)
Detailed master plan and full engineering design for prestigious port
Royal Haskoning announces that, in partnership with WorleyParsons Qatar WLL (subsidiary of WorleyParsons Australia), it will carry out the engineering design of the New Doha Port near Mesaieed, Qatar. The US$33 million project will see Royal Haskoning develop the port’s master plan and full engineering design for all associated marine and onshore components.

As part of the Qatar National Vision 2030, the project will occupy 20sq km of currently unused land and will be used for the import of raw materials and goods to aid the strategic growth of the country. Royal Haskoning’s design will also include a number of container terminals, a grain terminal, a general cargo terminal, facilities for the Coast Guard and the Emiri Yaught, and a separate port for the Qatari Navy. The first phase of the new port, located inland from the coastal strip north of Mesaieed and south of Al Wakra, will be in operation by 2014.

“Despite the global financial crisis, Qatar’s economy is going from strength to strength,” said Mr Al Noaimi, Chairman of the Steering Committee of the New Doha Port. “We are very confident that Royal Haskoning’s determination to deliver a world class facility designed to the highest international standards will serve the development needs of Qatar for 2030 and beyond.”

Simon Harries, director of maritime at Royal Haskoning, said “Our reputation as a global leader in maritime engineering and consultancy, together with our wide professional experience in the Gulf region, were instrumental in being awarded this contract. The team is very excited to be working on such a landmark project.”

Cansult Maunsell (AECOM) Programme Management has been engaged to provide project management consultancy services for the project.
