Contract awarded for Palm quay wall

01 December 2003
A joint venture of the local NSCC with France's Soletanche Bachy has received a letter of intent for the contract to build quay walls on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah project in Dubai. The design-build contract, estimated to be worth AED 148.9 million ($40.5 million), will cover the construction of five-kilometre-long reinforced concrete diaphragm quay walls, and the dredging to a depth of four metres between the proposed walls to create an inland channel.

The contract also entails significant marine and rock revetment works, in-situ and precast concrete works and related mechanical and electrical works.

The NSCC/Bachy team beat off competition from five other companies. They were: the local/UK Dutco Balfour Beatty; the local/Belgian Bel Hasa Six Construct; Germany's Bauer, Swissboring, part of Italy's Trevi Group; and the local Middle East Foundations.

The project manager is the US' Hill International; the client is the local Nakheel.

More work is planned on the trunk of Palm Jumeirah. Bids are due to be submitted by 30 November for an estimated AED 150 million ($41 million) contract involving the construction of roads, sewage disposal, stormwater drainage and related facilities (MEED 21:11:03).
