Work Detail BESIX announced in a statement that, through its local subsidiary Six Construct, in partnership with Modern Building Leaders (MBL) and Boskalis, has been awarded a contract by NEOM for the first phase of the improvement and expansion plans for the Port of NEOM located on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast. The total contract is valued at around SAR 3 billion, with BESIX-MBL joint venture covering approximately 50% of the scope. Strategically located near the Suez Canal, the port will be ambitiously transformed to become a fully integrated port and supply chain that will service NEOM’s Oxagon City and become a gateway for world trade and a catalyst for regional development. BESIX, together with Boskalis, is the first European contractor to be awarded a design and build lump sum contract with NEOM. BESIX-MBL joint venture will be responsible for the design and build of more than 3 km of quay walls of variant types, and the demolition of some existing structures. In line with BESIX’s commitment to innovativeness and sustainability, and to minimize social and environmental impacts, BESIX will ensure the lowest possible carbon footprint, implement a robust Environmental Management System, utilize innovative construction methodologies and elements, and integrate responsible and sustainable procurement. Peter Lembrechts, General Manager at BESIX: “This project marks the company’s excited return to Saudi Arabia where we will utilize our extensive experience to build the vital infrastructure needed for this magnificent city. We would like to thank NEOM and the selection committee for entrusting us with this project and look forward to working with all partners to make this vision a reality.”
