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
- 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.
