The marine works contract for Reem Developers' massive Najmat Abu Dhabi project is expected to be awarded later this month.
Work will involve the construction of three marinas and is part of an overall infrastructure package worth US $653 million (AED2.4 billion), which will be put to tender at various stages.
The tender for marine works also covers the construction of pontoons, canals, reclamation works and rock revetment. Work is expected to take 18 months.
The three marinas that will be built as part of the $8.16 billion development - Bay Centre Marina (250m in diameter), Residential Marina (200m in diameter) and Resort Marina (180m in diameter) - will be linked by a canal which traverses the spine of the sprawling development.
The canal works involve the construction of quay walls spanning a length of 2,300m.
The reclamation works will create three island parks complete with edge treatment in the form of rock revetment.
Najmat Abu Dhabi lies 300m off the coast of Abu Dhabi on Al Reem Island.
