Fishing port will feature two 3.3-km-long water breakers, a 1.3-km fixed dock, and six floating anchors.

Oman’s Special Economic Zone Authority at Duqm (SEZAD) has called on local and international companies to submit their bids to develop, manage, and operate the fishing port and related investment projects within the Special Economic Zone at Duqm (SEZD).

According to the Oman Newsy Agency, companies willing to bid for the project should purchase the tender documents on or by 25 February 2020. SEZAD will organise a field trip for interested companies to the site of the project on 11 February.

In addition to developing, managing, and operating the fishing port at Duqm, the winning bidder(s) will also invest in the lands located at the port area. 

Once developed, the Fishing Port at Duqm will be largest in the Sultanate with 10-metre depth. Other features at the port will include, two 3.3-km-long water breakers, a 1.3-km fixed dock, and six floating anchors.

In addition, the facility will include an area allocated for tourism purposes that are associated with the port, as well as paved roads connecting the port to the Fisheries Zone and other projects within the SEZD.

Duqm province is a prime location for the project, as it has a stock of fisheries, ONA said. The Fishing Port will support diversification of sources of income, and provide job opportunities for Omanis. It will also promote the re-export sector by transferring modern technology and creating an added value to the fisheries sector in SEZD.
