Navayuga Engineering Company (NEC) announced it has completed to deadline the Khor Fakkan Port Expansion Project for Berth 6, contracted from Athena SA.
The Abu Dhabi-based infrastructure development and construction company said it is on target to meet its targets for growth this year despite financial pressures from the global recession.
“When we commenced operations in the UAE last year, our goal was to highlight our strengths in complex infrastructure projects,” said NEC general manager Antony David. “The Khor Fakkan Port Expansion Project is a testament to our capabilities, and we will leverage this experience for future expansion.”
The port project involved the installation of bored pile foundation extending to depths of up to 25m. NEC said it completed pile testing including a static load test, dynamic test and non destructive integrity testing in accordance with specifications by the Institution of Civil Engineers, UK.
Two heavy duty piling rigs, two cranes of 50 and 80 tonnes and two vibro hammers were employed on site. The contract was supervised and executed by 20 technical staff.
The company said it aims to become one of the top ten piling firms in the UAE.
“Infrastructure development continues to be a priority for the region, and we will partner in the public and private sector initiatives to contribute to supporting regional projects with world-class technology and manpower support,” David added.
