INTERNATIONAL.  HaskoningDHV UK Ltd, in consortium with Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd., has been selected to perform the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for the infrastructure of a world-class and globally competitive maritime yard in Ras Al-Khair in Saudi Arabia.
 
The maritime yard will comprise a distinct shipyard facility for large shipbuilding, large ship repair, offshore rigs fabrication, and offshore support vessel repair. As planned, this facility will become the largest maritime yard in the world providing a range of services. It will be located north of Jubail on the Arabian Gulf.
 
Royal HaskoningDHV’s specialist shipyard consultancy experience combined with Hyundai E&C’s track record in Engineering-Procurement-Construction (EPC) projects will provide comprehensive technical knowledge for all elements of the shipyard’s design.
 
Adrian Arnold, Project Director at Royal HaskoningDHV said, “Maritime yards must be globally competitive with facilities which are cost-effective, operationally flexible, and durable. This project combines four different yards into a single development, creating significant opportunities for economies of scale and enhancing the country’s economic development.”
 
The maritime yard will have an impressive 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.
 
Royal HaskoningDHV undertook the initial market study for the maritime yard in 2014. The FEED development work is now scheduled to take five months.  
