Besix and Boskalis have won a contract to start dredging and building quay walls for the Port of Neom in Saudi Arabia.

The initial phase of the project involves transforming the current Duba Port into a logistics hub. The plan also includes the creation of an innovative manufacturing center known as the "Oxagon" within the larger Neom area. Boskalis will undertake the task of deepening and expanding the primary access channel of the port. Concurrently, Besix, in collaboration with a Saudi consortium called Modern Building Leaders, will be responsible for designing and constructing approximately 3 km of quay walls. 

Jacobs, along with Moffatt and Nichol, IGO, and Trent as sub-consultants, has been selected as the main design consultant for a redesign project valued at over SAR180 million (US$48 million). The project encompasses terminals, warehouses, rail delivery, infrastructure, a sustainable energy network, and more. In addition, crane and container equipment contracts have been awarded to Saudi Liebherr Company Ltd and Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited (ZPMC). Saudi Liebherr secured contracts for 10 mobile harbor cranes, while ZPMC received contracts for 10 ship-to-shore gantry cranes, 30 electric rubber-tiered gantry cranes, and 6 automated rail-mounted gantry cranes, with a total value exceeding SAR1 billion (US$266 million).
