The company, which is overseeing the $660m construction of a ship repair yard and drydock at the site, is seeking contractors to supply heavy lifting and transport equipment.

A second contract will involve the design, manufacture and installation of electrical equipment. The third will require the winning bidder to supply 14 cranes for use at the site.

The main construction contract at Duqm, which involves building two 410-metre docks, 2.8 kilometres of quay wall, crane foundations and office buildings, was won in January by a team of the local Galfar Engineering & Contracting and South Korea’s Daewoo Engineering & Construction (MEED 18:1:08)
