Project Objectives

  • To provide a safe navigation channel with unrestricted air draft for vessels between the Mussafah Industrial Port and the Arabian Gulf
  • To minimize the environmental impacts on the marine protected area arising from the construction works
  • To provide an increased depth of 9m allowing the Mussafah Industries to expand their commercial operations

Project Challenges

  • Time constraint to operate the new channel prior to the air draft restriction in the existing channel
  • Large volume of material to dredge within the timeframe
  • Heavy construction works in a sensitive marine protected area
  • Undertaking dredging works in an operational shipping channel
