Ras Al-Khair Port Berths (9 & 10)

Ras Al-Khair Port is the latest industrial port in Saudi Arabia, located in its fastest developing industrial regions. When completed, the port will handle about 895.4 million metric tons of industrial products annually.

The scope of work includes dredging more than 3.5 million cubic meters to level -16.20 m of the basin and dredging trenches to level -26 m with the reclamation of more than 1.5 million cubic meters in the lagoon area and more than 2 million cubic meters behind the gravity-type quay wall.
Two ready mix concrete plants were installed to secure a heavy daily demand of more than 1,000 m3 (totaling about 200,000 m3 of concrete for the quay-wall, capping beams, and other works). A jetty was constructed to accommodate a heavy crane of 500 tons needed to handle about 5,000 precast concrete blocks weighing 100 tons on average.
More than 530,000 tons of rocks are supplied and installed for rock backfilling and anti-scouring works. Work includes the supply & installation of cell fenders and bollards, construction of interlock paving areas, asphalt roads, construction of seawater firefighting and potable water systems, removal of the existing bund wall, and construction of a 3,000 m long fence.
