Takreer has tendered the marine works package of the Hamriyah fuel storage project in the Sharjah free zone.

Contractors have been invited to build the jetty and the transport infrastructure from the fuel depot to the harbour, as part of the engineering procurement and construction (ECP) package.

Technical bids were submitted on June 20 and commercial bids are due on July 4

Bidders include local company Target Engineering, South Korea’s Daelim and Oman’s Galfar and the UK’s Balfour Beatty.

The primary EPC package, the construction of the fuel tanks in the free zone, has been hit by repeated delays. China’s Sinopec has submitted the lowest bid, but the contract has not been awarded (MEED 06:05:11).

The scope of the marine work includes two berthing and four mooring dolphins, breakwater repairs and widening, as well as a piled trestle.
