SMEC was engaged by Seaport Group BV (Netherlands) to provide consultancy services for the Environmental Impact Assessment and Preliminary Site Surveys. This included topographic and bathymetric surveys and geotechnical investigations of the site. The investigations will form part of the Feasibility Study which will be used by the Oman Investment Authority to inform the next phase of implementation.
With local engineers situated in the region, SMEC was able to mobilise environmental, geotechnical, and marine transport specialists to expedite analysis of the survey information ahead of schedule. The pre-selected location will be based on minimising excavation, capital dredging, quay wall construction, and minimising environmental and social impacts.
