Two Firms to Develop FEED for New Maritime Yard in Saudi Arabia

Engineering and project management consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV UK and South Korea’s Hyundai Engineering & Construction have been selected to perform the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for the infrastructure of a maritime yard in Ras Al-Khair, Saudi Arabia. 

According to Royal Haskoning DHV, the maritime yard will comprise a shipyard facility for large shipbuilding, large ship repair, offshore rigs fabrication, and offshore support vessel repair. It will be located north of Jubail on the Arabian Gulf.

The maritime yard will have a range of facilities including seven fully-equipped dry docks, two basins and five piers, a shiplift system, workshops, warehouses, utility services areas, as well as office buildings, living quarters, and recreational facilities for more than 10,000 workers.

“This project combines four different yards into a single development, creating significant opportunities for economies of scale and enhancing the country’s economic development.” Adrian Arnold, Project Director at Royal HaskoningDHV, said.

The FEED development work is scheduled to take five months.
