Developed on Bouyban Island off the coast of Iraq, Mubarak Al Kabeer Port was instigated by Kuwait’s Ministry of Public Works in an attempt to re-establish Kuwait as a renowned shipping hub.

In addition to carrying out a feasibility study, AECOM developed the design of a deep water navigation channel for the new port.

Although faced with the challenging prospect of dredging soft and muddy land, our multi-disciplinary team of experts was able to create simple solutions to the most complex of problems.

AECOM is providing the following services for the construction of the new port:

  • Design and Planning
  • Dredging
  • Land Reclamation
  • Construction Supervision

The port will allow for easier access to the Red Sea and will rejuvenate Kuwait’s role as a primary shipping port.
