9 of the world’s biggest seaport projects under construction, including Port of NEOM and OXAGON

Contractors Besix and Boskalis last year won a design and build lump sum contract worth SAR 3 billion (US$800 million) for the construction of 3km of quay walls at the Port of NEOM in Saudi Arabia.  

Boskalis is responsible for the deepening and widening of the main access channel. Materials recovered during the dredging process will be reused of to construct earthwork platforms for the development of OXAGON, an advanced manufacturing centre surrounding the port.

Located on the Red Sea, near the Suez Canal, the port serves as the primary seaport for NEOM. The first container terminal is set to be operational by 2025.

Other major port constructions include Paradip Port, India, Laem Chabang Port expansion phase 3, Thailand, Port of Genoa breakwater upgrade, Italy and King Abdulaziz Port upgrade, Saudi Arabia.
