Secondary Navigation Channel

PROJECT AT A GLANCE
Project NameSecondary Navigation Channel
LocationNorth of Doha

Currently excavation works are ongoing around the island in order to deepen the shallow shelf and restore the island character of the site (lagoon excavation works). The excavation is over a 600m approximately radius around the site. The outer 500m approximately are being excavated to -1.0mQND, whereas the inner 100m approximately are being excavated to -2.5mQND (to make that area swimmable).

The scope of work for this project includes the excavation of the berthing area, turning basin and the secondary channel to -6.88mQND to allow the vessels to access the island’s berthing area.

The marine studies were undertaken by Marine Consultans Sogreah and the excavation is being undertaken by Redco.
