Topaz Engineering subsidiary to build industrial facilities at four berths of oil terminal

Nico International has won a multi-million-dollar contract to build industrial facilities at four berths of Fujairah Port’s second oil terminal.

The Dubai-based marine architect, a subsidiary of the UAE’s Topaz Engineering, will start work immediately designing and building the topside facilities at the four berths. The work is scheduled to take 10 months to complete.

The work forms part of a AED900m ($245m) expansion of industrial facilities at the site, the world’s second-largest fuel supply port. It is at the mouth of the Straits of Hormuz. Fujairah will have 17 docks to store and transport crude oil and 12 multi-purpose docks by the end of 2009.

The second oil terminal, now under construction, will handle fuel oil, jet fuel and gasoline but not crude.
