Dry bulk handling capacity at the UAE port of Fujairah is to be expanded through a major infrastructure investment project. The new Dibba bulk handling terminal will require extensive dredging, the building of a new 765m long quay wall and foundations for ship loader rails as well as other port infrastructure. The port’s fishing harbour will be relocated to make way for the new terminal.
A US$ 100 million contact to carry out the required civil engineering work has been award to Jan de Nul of the Netherlands and Six Construct, a subsidiary of Besix of Belgium. Works will be carried out over a 19 month period.
