Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) has awarded Geneva-registered Archirodon Construction the estimated $65m marine works package at its fuel storage facility at Hamriyah Free Zone in Sharjah in the UAE.

The contract involves the construction of a jetty with two berths and mooring dolphins. The deal also includes breakwater repairs, sea defences, piling work and other associated facilities.

The other bidders competing for the contract were South Korea’s Daelim Industrial Company, the local/UK Dutco Balfour Beatty, Oman’s Galfar Engineering & Construction and Target Engineering Construction Company.

The UK’s Atkins is the consultant.

Archirodon’s contract is the second construction contract awarded on the project. Takreer awarded the main engineering, procurement and construction contract to China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) in September last year (MEED 23:9:11).

The project scope is for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of 10 fuel tanks and associated facilities to be used by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) Distribution.

The tank farm is intended to store petroleum products, including gasoline, diesel, fuel oil and jet fuel, and act as main supply point for service stations in Sharjah, Ajman, and Umm al-Quwain.
