BAM Gets New Aqaba Port Done

BAM International and its local partner MAG  have successfully completed the construction of the new port in Aqaba, Jordan, for Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC), a second port in line with the country’s economic master plan.

Together with its Jordanian joint venture partner MAG, BAM was responsible for the design and construction of four new berths (in total approximately 800 metres quay wall), revetment works, a breakwater, marine services, pontoons and a slip way.

Furthermore, land reclamation and dredging works (800,000 m3), as well as the construction of two intake pipes and one outfall pipe were included in this $88.6 million contract.

Last year BAM completed the container terminal for ADC en APMT in Aqaba and the company is currently building the Aqaba New Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal, eighteen kilometres south of Aqaba for ADC. The LNG Terminal forms a part of ADC’s plan for developing Aqaba’s Energy Ports.

The Government has tasked ADC to develop Jordan’s energy intake capabilities to ensure a consistent supply of energy fuels such as oil, LNG and LPG.
