Qatar

The New Port project in Qatar, carried out by the Middle East Dredging Company (MEDCO), was successfully completed and handed over to the client in January 2016. Strategically located south of Doha, the mega-project includes a new port, a new base for the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces and the Qatar Economic Zone 3.

 

Works included the dredging and excavation of some 45 million m³ of hard rock for the access channel, the land reclamation for a new 4.5 km² offshore naval base and the construction of two large, outer breakwaters comprising 4.5 million tonnes of rock in total. At peak times, about 1,600 people were working on the project.

MIDDLE EAST DREDGING COMPANY (MEDCO)
“Working with MEDCO in Qatar for the dredging and reclamation project of the Doha New Port gave me a real understanding of creating land for the future. It is wonderful to see new land or a new island appear gradually before your eyes and know you have played a role in its creation.”
