Vos Logistics selects Amana to construct the new multi-million dollar logistics terminal in Mesaïeed, Qatar
Amana Contracting & Steel Buildings, a leader in the industrial construction sector, has been awarded a contract from Vos Logistics, to design and build a logistics terminal in Mesaieed Industrial City, Qatar.
The contract, valued at more than USD $20 million, is one of several secured by Amana in Qatar this year. With over 10 years of presence in Doha, Amana is a leading provider of design-build construction solutions to the industrial sector.
Vos Logistics, a leading European logistics service provider to the petrochemical industry, was awarded the contract by Qatofin to build and operate a high tech logistics platform in May 2006. The platform, currently one of the largest of its kind in the Middle East, will be located adjacent to the Arabian Gulf and is directly connected to the production facilities of Qatofin. The terminal, to be designed and constructed by Amana, facilitates storage and handling of Qatofin’s Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) granules.
When completed the terminal complex will comprise 4 buildings featuring a 56,000 m² covered warehouse, 14,500 m³ silo storage, two fully automatic and mobile packaging lines, 20 loading docks and container storage and transshipment with a capacity of 1000 teu.
The complex sits on an area of approximately 100,000 square meters and will be constructed on a design-build basis in 20 months, commencing January 2007, and using over 1,000 tons of steel. The logistics platform is planned to be operational at the end of 2008.
Marc Van Alphen, Managing Director Silo Logistics & Projects at Vos Logistics, said that Vos is looking to expand in the Middle East region. “We partnered with Amana as they could not only deliver the quality and service on this particular project, but they were also able to provide turnkey solutions elsewhere around the region in line with our expansion plans for the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman.”
“More and more companies in the oil & gas as well as the logistics sectors in Qatar and across the region are recognizing Amana’s reputation for delivering high quality, turnkey solutions on time and within budget,” said Chebel Bsaibes, Chief Executive Officer, Amana Contracting & Steel Buildings. “We have had a very successful year to date, sealing more than 35 projects across the region. We are very happy with the relationship with Vos Logistics and we look forward to building on it across the region.”
