Oman: Port of Duqm awards contract to IFS, Envecon
Oman’s Port of Duqm has enlisted Envecon and IFS to support its scale-up to a fully operational harbour
Oman’s Port of Duqm has enlisted IFS partner, Envecon, to support its move from a greenfield site to a fully operational harbour.
Envecon will use IFS Applications and IFS Enterprise Operational Intelligence to support scale-up activities at the port.
The tools will allow the Port of Duqm to manage its core business processes and adapt its operations as clients, personnel, and suppliers come on board.
IFS Applications will be employed by Envecon as a centrally integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform to manage the port’s operations. Meanwhile, IFS Enterprise Operational Intelligence will provide real-time insight into the development’s business activities.
Reggy Vermeulen, chief executive officer of Port of Duqm, said: The chemistry between Port of Duqm and the IFS and Envecon team during the selection process indicated a strong sharing of minds, and a common ambition to realise a [mutually] successful journey.
“Combined with exceptional industry expertise in harbour operations, and the testimonies of their customers, IFS and Envecon demonstrated their ability to meet our needs. They will play a pivotal role in scaling our operations and realising our strategic objectives.”
Luis Ortega, Middle East, South Asia, and Africa managing director of IFS, added: “We look forward to working with Envecon in helping Port of Duqm scale up its operations, and driving business value from its investment in IFS Applications.
“In addition, this will add further value [by] supporting other public and private organisations [that] will utilise [Port of Duqm and its] industrial facilities to facilitate their integration with the port authority services,” he concluded.
Situated on the south-eastern seaboard of Oman, Port of Duqm comprises 2,000ha of land that has been earmarked for industrial and petrochemical investments.
The development is managed by Port of Duqm Company (PDC).
