Marine Structures & Roads Construction Project - Duqm Fishery Port
This projects scope of work involves construction of Marine Structures and Roads for a Fishery Port located at Duqm in Oman. Marine structures include dredging, reclamation, breakwaters, quay walls and concrete floating platoons with berthing facilities, navigation aids, complete with ancillary works. The Duqm Fishery Harbor will be integrated with a world-scale Industrial Fisheries Cluster envisaged as part of a mammoth Special Economic Zone (SEZ) under development at Duqm. According to SEZAD, investment in the harbor project and the infrastructure for the Industrial Fisheries Cluster, is estimated to cost around $260 million. According to a report from last August by the World Bank, Omans government is working on overhauling its fisheries sector, as part of efforts to diversify away from its oil dependence. Although fisheries in the Sultanate are not as productive as they once were, well-managed fisheries can be a bountiful and renewable resource and contribute to food security of the population, especially the poor, the organisation said.
