Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM), a joint venture shipyard established by Nakilat and Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), has secured a contract worth $19 million (69 million Qatari Riyals) to design and construct a floating jetty for Qatar Primary Materials Company (QPMC).

Scheduled for completion in early 2015, the floating jetty is the first project that N-KOM will be undertaking for QPMC.

The floating jetty situated in Ras Laffan Industrial City will be QPMC’s second floating jetty in Qatar, with another jetty project ongoing in Lusail and Gabbro berths in Mesaieed. Serving as an offloading point for aggregates, the jetty will be in close proximity to the stockpile located within the industrial city.

N-KOM has been contracted for the engineering, procurement, installation and construction (EPIC) of the floating jetty. Once complete, the jetty will have an annual aggregates handling capacity of 7.8 million metric tons.
