Advisian and WorleyParsons participated at the two-day Port Development Middle East Conference in Muscat where Andrew joined Bart Propper, Project Director from EPC Contractor Boskalis, to talk about the design, procurement and project management process for the complex marine infrastructure.
Andrew Batty presents at the Port Development Middle East Conference, held inMuscat Oman from 22-23 October.
The unusual dry excavation form of construction for the massive project captured the attention of the audience and provided the rare opportunity to see complex marine works that are usually submerged under water.
The project centres on the construction of four liquid product berths on a pair of double-berth island jetties, as well as three dry bulk berths on an approximately one-kilometre-long quay wall. Additionally, the port basin will be dredged to a depth of 18 metres to allow for the handling of vessels ranging in tonnage from 2,150 DWT to 168,000 DWT (Suezmax).
Hearing the client confirm to the audience that the project is on time and within budget is a great testament to the work that has been done by the consulting and contracting teams. The success of the project has been attributed to the collaborative relationship between the Client, PMC and EPC project teams that in turn has directly contributed to the overall excellent Safety and Quality achievements to date.
