Tahya Masr Multi-purpose Terminal Alexandria Seaport Berths 55/62

Owner: Egyptian Group for Multi-purpose Terminal.

Consultant: Dar Al Handasa & Modern Engineering Consultant.

Project Overview:

The Tahya Masr Multipurpose Terminal is an upcoming terminal that will play a vital role in transforming the Alexandria Port into a regional and global hub for trade and logistics. With a capacity for over two million tons of goods a year, the terminal is expected to boost the port’s annual revenues by $50 million, shorten waiting times for ships docking at the port, create investment opportunities, and establish 4,500 direct and indirect job opportunities. Moreover, the terminal will play a vital role in Egypt’s modern transport sector as a key linking chain in the upcoming $4.45 billion high-speed electric rail line, which will link the Red Sea Port of Ain Sokhna to the Mediterranean Ports of Alexandria and Marsa Matrouh. The terminal will also supply the upcoming dry port on the 6th of October Industrial City and the logistics center associated with the Alexandria Port.

Our Scope of Work:
 

  1. Construction of a container berth on the northern and western sides of the project site, with a total length of 1420 m and a depth of 17.5 m.

  2. Construction of a container berth on the southern side of the project site, with a length of 930 m and a depth of 14 m.

  3. Construction of the storage terminal yards at the project site, with an Area of 550,000 m2, includes the underground water utilities (Sewer, drainage, fire fighting, and electric networks), substations, pump rooms, tanks, and the finishing paving layers of base coarse material, concrete paving, and heavy-duty concrete laying blocks.

  4. Construction of an environmental barrier of 2,650 m length to protect the environment of the navigation channel in the port during sand reclamation works.

  5. Reclamation & Backfilling work for the entire area of the project to execute and construct a berth and yards with estimated quantities of about 10 million m3; the backfill will be carried out by using land and specialized marine equipment (Hopper dredger).

  6. Executing the soil improvement works for the entire area of the project for the berth and yards with an area of 473,749 m2 by using Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVD), Vibro-compaction (VC), and Rapid Impact Compaction (RIC).

  7. Construction of the berth with a length of 2,350 m and 33.9 m in width includes the followings:

  • Front diaphragm wall with a width of 1.20 m and a depth of up to 36.3 m, and a length of 1,420 m, and estimated concrete quantities of 61,800 m3 for the berths with a depth of 17.5 m.​

  • Front diaphragm wall with a width of 1 m and a depth of up to 36.3 m, and a length of 930 m and estimated concrete quantities of 33,759 m3 for the berths with a depth of 14.50 m.

  • Piles with a diameter of 1.20 m and a depth of up to 36.30 m and 35.00 m with a total length of 42,028 m and estimated concrete quantities of 49,000 m3.

  • Barrettes with dimensions of 2.8 x 0.8 m and a depth of up to 36.30 m and 35.00 m with a total length of 42,028 m and estimated concrete quantities of 54,235 m3.
