STFA hits peak work at Oman fishery harbour

Turkish contractor has over 300 people on site at Taqh facility

NEWS, Projects, STFA

Turkish contractor STFA has reached the peak stage of a project to build a fishery habour in Taqah, Oman.

The site lies around 35km east of Salalah and STFA is working on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries.

Project manager Ediz Dundar said the scope of works covers the construction of two rubble mound breakwaters and quay wall, installation of berthing, mooring and navigational aids, and the construction of internal service road and approach road to connect the site to the Salalah–Mirbat Road.

Dundar said the project has been at peak levels since breakwater construction started in December and would continue during the two-and-half month dredging period, which started last week. Just over 300 people on site are mainly allocated to the precast yard.

The project is scheduled to be finished in February 2015.
