Overseas AST is pleased to announce the award of a significant marine contract in Q3 2017 associated with the Dubai Harbour Development, a unique waterfront destination featuring the largest marina in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Developed by Meraas and planned to add to Dubai’s position as a leading global tourism destination, this iconic luxury waterfront destination, spread over 20 million sq. feet, will include a 1400-berth marina as well as a cruise ship terminal, a shopping mall covering 3.5 million sq. feet, an events arena, luxurious residential buildings, hotels, offices, retail stores, public services, restaurants and cafes and ‘Dubai Lighthouse’.
AST will deliver the marine works for this state-of-the-art project in 22 months. Key elements of the scope include; 4.5km gravity block quay wall, piling works for the new marina and cruise terminal including associated marine furniture.
In Q3 2017, Overseas AST won the contract for the second phase of the service harbour in the northern emirate port of Fujairah in the UAE.
The port is located approximately 70 nautical miles from the Strait of Hormuz and is strategically important for the UAE’s logistics sector.
AST will deliver the quayside, back of quay services, utilities and buildings to provide the Port of Fujairah with a temporary service harbour to facilitate the expansion of the main port.
The Dubai Creek Harbour is Emaar’s latest flagship project currently under development within and adjacent to the Dubai Creek and the Ras Al Khor RAMSAR designated wildlife area.
The development includes the formation of an island (the Island District) which is to be constructed within the Dubai Creek and connected to the mainland by several bridges. The island is being formed by the construction of a series of marine edge walls which vary in design, level and alignment according to the architectural and functional requirements of the adjacent precincts.
Overseas AST has been contracted to undertake the construction of the Phase 1 marine works which includes the Advance Promenade, Docklands, Creekside Park, Harbour Promenade and Marina 1A precincts. The works comprises the fabrication and installation of quay wall elements and all associated rockwork, dredging and excavation. The project presents significant interface and coordination challenges and stringent environmental compliance due to the proximity to the adjacent wildlife sanctuary
Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) Group has awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract to Overseas-AST, the last of three contracts for the US$1 billion (Dh3.67bn) expansion of its Jebel Ali refinery.
Dubai-based Overseas-AST will join other main contractors, Technip Italy, as well as Rotary Engineering Fujairah, to complete the refinery expansion, which will increase capacity by 50 percent by end-2019. The value of the three contracts has not been disclosed.
“The refinery’s expansion is part of the group’s five-year strategic plan to secure uninterrupted energy supply in the UAE to the highest levels of efficiency and reliability,” said Saif Al Falasi, the group chief executive of Enoc.
Overseas-AST will construct the various interconnecting pipelines between the refinery’s processing units, storage tanks and berth facilities within Jebel Ali Free Zone. Technip is in charge of the main design and construction of the refinery’s ancillary units, while Rotary Engineering will construct 12 new storage tanks.
Mr Al Falasi added: “The final phase of the expansion also brings us a step closer to meeting the growing demand for clean energy and petroleum products locally as manufactured products will meet stringent Euro 5 standards.”
A new condensate processing train will be added to help to increase daily capacity to 210,000 barrels from its current 140,000 barrels per day. In addition, processing units will help increase the products such as petrol, jet fuel and diesel to meet the rise in local demand as well as for export.
“With primary energy consumption growing by 2.1 per cent in the region and the Middle East making up 6.7 per cent of the share of global energy consumption in 2016, the expansion of the Jebel Ali refinery plays a key role in the region’s downstream strategy for exports and increasing domestic use,“ Mr Al Falasi said, quoting data from BP.
The UAE Government estimates that domestic energy demand is growing 9 per cent per year, in line with the country’s rising population. Mr Al Falasi said in April that Dubai’s population alone was forecast to increase by nearly 32 per cent by 2021.
The Overseas AST and NSCC Joint Venture were awarded the contract for Marine works associated with Yas South Integrated Destination Resort (Yas-IDR) for Miral Asset Management, Abu Dhabi in 2017.
The Yas-IDR is a vibrant, ambitious and compelling mixed-used development aimed at transforming Yas Island into a top global destination. Key elements of the project involve platforms, floating berths (including pontoons), tubular steel piles and associated reclamation works, etc.
Upon completion, Yas IDR will integrate a variety of experiences such as entertainment district, residences, retail outlets, hotels and waterfront promenade, etc., delivering a memorable experience as a global destination for family entertainment and leisure.
AST is indeed proud to be associated with Miral to deliver another landmark project in the UAE, demonstrating its commitment and over 57 year’s experience in providing bespoke nearshore marine & civil infrastructure developments in the UAE.

Nakheel has officially signed the construction contract for the $40.83 million The Boardwalk project on Palm Jumeirah, the developer has announced.
The waterfront attraction will run the full 11km length of the Palm Jumeirah’s crescent and is being built by Overseas AST Company LLC. It is one of several new destination projects currently underway at Palm Jumeirah. Work is scheduled to begin by the end of November, with completion scheduled for mid-2016.
The Boardwalk will turn Palm Jumeirah’s breakwater into a retail destination, with outlets for shopping and dining. It will also include East and West Piers, with each stretching 100 metres into the sea. These will feature cafes and restaurants as well, Nakheel said in a statement.
The project will be built over the rocks of the breakwater and will be six metres wide, the developer added. It will have 14 access points along the existing sidewalk and resorts on the Palm.
30 refreshment and souvenir kiosks will also be built along its length.
A number of Nakheel projects are underway at the Palm Jumeirah, including the massive Nakheel Mall and the high-end luxury destination, The Pointe. A number of residential projects are also being developed as well.
The Boardwalk has transformed Palm Jumeirah’s 11km protective crescent into a vibrant destination for walking, shopping and dining, including an East and West Pier – each stretching 100 metres out to sea – featuring glass-encased cafes and restaurants with extensive views of the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah and the Dubai skyline.
Accessible from 14 points along the existing sidewalk and on the doorstep of an array of world-famous resorts on Palm Jumeirah’s crescent, The Boardwalk is created by building over the rocks of the Palm’s breakwater.
It is six metres wide – more than double the width of the existing crescent path – with 30 kiosks, offering refreshments and souvenirs, throughout its 11km length.
A Nakheel spokesman said: “The Boardwalk at Palm Jumeirah, one of several new projects underway on the island, is a big draw for Palm residents, the wider community of Dubai and the millions of tourists who visit Dubai each year.”
