QEZ3 Port, Doha – PMC, a workshare success story
The QEZ3 port is located on an inland site north of the Hamad Port and accommodates smaller vessels, particularly from Qatar and neighboring Gulf states. The project included a greenfield development of a naval base on a new reclaimed offshore island to provide berthing facilities for the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces. QEZ3 will be an important gateway into Qatar, providing an economic hub around the port for manufacturing, logistics and trade. WorleyParsons was appointed as the PMC to provide the master planning, design and construction support for construction of port and naval buildings, infrastructure and utility buildings, reclamation, marine works mobile equipment and port cranes and security packages.
WorleyParsons, in association with Royal Haskoning DHV (RHDHV) as a subcontractor executed the project primarily in the WorleyParsons Doha office with work shared with the Dubai office for shallow quay marine works; and the Mumbai office for the structural design of the utility buildings.
The master planning for the new port is closely aligned with the Qatar National Vision 2030 pillars of environmental, economic, human and social development which focus on harmony between economic growth, social development and environmental protection.
