Sohar Port and Freezone is inviting local and international consultants to prequalify for its contract to provide consultancy services and design ahead of its port expansion project.
The port and freezone plans to develop its infrastructure, which includes dredging, reclamation, shore protection, jetties, storm water drainage solutions and demolition of the old jetty in the port.
The project is part of the port’s initial expansion drive aimed at developing into a major industrial and logistics hub in the region.
As part of this, Sohar Port and Free Zone will need consultancy and front-end engineering design (FEED) for its Sohar Port South expansion.
The consultant through FEED will focus on the technical requirements and the rough investment cost for the project, the company said.
It has floated tenders for the pre-qualification and documents will have to be submitted by October 25.
Recently, Sohar Port signed a US $600 million oil storage contract with Singapore-based Trescorp.
