Oman’s Khazaen Economic City – the developer behind the eponymous 52km2 masterplanned commercial hub touted as the largest public-private partnership (PPP) project in the sultanate – has signed an agreement confirming Dar Al-Arkan as a tenant within its premises.

In a series of tweets, Khazaen Economic City said Dar Al-Arkan would establish a factory within the masterplanned city, which Canadian contractor SNC-Lavalin-owned Atkins designed and Galfar Engineering & Contracting won an infrastructure services contract for.

Khazaen Economic City added: “Dar Al-Arkan’s factory is set to produce chemical items and innovative building systems.”

Construction Week has approached a Khazaen Economic City representative for additional information and will update this story if and when a response is received.

In July 2018, Atkins was picked to deliver consultancy services for the megaproject under a $6.8m (OMR2.6m) contract, with the firm also assigned to carry out master-planning, design, and supervision for the Northern Oman project.

In June 2019, Al-Balushi revealed that construction contracts would be awarded and work would begin on the economic city in the second half of 2019.
