Oman’s Transport and Communications Ministry (MOTC) has invited firms to bid by 8 August for the supervision of civil and marine works at Shinas Port, located in the sultanate’s Northern Batinah governorate.
The selected firm will supervise: the construction of additional boatyard and associated facilities; design, manufacture, supply and installation of additional floating pontoons; and the design and construction of a quay wall at the port.
Last year, the MOTC launched tenders for the additional livestock barns and floating pontoons, as part of the master plan to develop the port as a regional trade and tourism facility.
MEED understands the main floating pontoons will have the capacity to handle up to three tonnes per square metre.
The 41 livestock barns will also allow the port to handle more livestock carriers coming from neighbouring countries.
