Almajdouie wins Sabiya Power Plant project contract

June 28 - Almajdouie Al Kazmi Heavylift Company has secured the onshore freight forwarding contract for the Kuwait-based Sabiya power plant project.

The company, which is a joint venture between Almajdouie Group of Saudi Arabia and Al Kazmi of Kuwait, will handle about 300,000 tonnes of cargo imported from various parts of the world and will be responsible for the entire project management and customs clearance, inland transportation of all material from various seaports and airports including local movement of heavy turbines / transformers / generators by barge from Sabiya seaport to the jetty.

Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), which holds an EPC contract for the Sabiya project, appointed Almajdouie PSC Heavylift Company Ltd to handle the onshore freight forwarding work.

Almajdouie Heavylift and Engineering (MHL) has also installed a 266 tonne transformer at a project site on the outskirts of Jeddah. The project involved receiving the 266 tonne (length 10.68 m, width 3.90 m and height 5.05 m) transformer from a heavy lift ship and loading it onto Almajdouie's conventional trailers in the Jeddah Port.

This was carried out utilising a 10-axle side-by-side conventional trailer from Jeddah Port to the Shoaiba Sceco project site, about 130 km away on the outskirts of Jeddah. The transformer was then safely offloaded and installed using jacking and skidding methods over seven days.

Almajdouie is a member of both the Worldwide Project Consortium and the Cargo Equipment Experts global networks.
