BAM International and its local partner MAG have completed the construction of the new port in Aqaba, Jordan, for Aqaba Development Corp. (ADC). This is the second port in line with Jordan’s economic master plan.
BAM, the operating company of Royal BAM Group active outside of Europe, was responsible for the design and construction of four new berths (in total approximately 800 m quay wall), revetment works, a breakwater, marine services, pontoons and a slip way.
In 2013, BAM completed the container terminal for ADC en APMT in Aqaba.
BAM is currently building the Aqaba New Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal, 18 km south of Aqaba for ADC. The LNG terminal forms part of ADC’s plan for developing Aqaba’s Energy Ports. The government has tasked ADC to develop Jordan’s energy intake capabilities to ensure a consistent supply of energy fuels such as oil, LNG and LPG.
