Oman's Oneic has won a power supply contract in Duqm [representational image].

Oman National Engineering & Investment Company (Oneic) has been awarded a power supply contract worth almost $1m by Rural Areas Electricity Company (Tanweer).

Oneic’s contract for Tanweer’s project is worth $984,600 (OMR378,587), and includes the establishment of power supply for a yet-to-be-built fish centre in Special Economic Zone in Duqm (SEZD).

Work will last approximately 150 days and will commence when Oneic has received a directive from the project management office to begin construction.

The contract comes after Oman Food Investment Holding Company signed a deal with Special Economic Zone Authority in Duqm to create a fishing hub in the area last year.

Plans for the complex include building a fishery harbour, landing areas for fish, support services, and processing facilities.

The move can be seen against a wider effort to improve food security in Oman, which is heavily dependent on imported produce.
