The challenge

As part of a strategic development plan of Aqaba Development Corporation, the present Phosphate Rock export terminal in the Main Port needed to be relocated to the South Port of Aqaba – at the existing fertiliser complex of Jordan Phosphate Mines Co. The relocation to the South port was due for completion in mid-2012.

Our solution

Royal HaskoningDHV prepared the master plan and corresponding design, which comprises new truck intake and storage facilities in the backyard of the fertiliser plant, a new jetty with ship loaders and the connecting conveyor system. Royal HaskoningDHV then drafted tender documents and provided assistance during tendering and contract award. The company also supervised implementation.

The outcome

A new state-of-the-art export terminal is now in place, designed for an annual throughput of up to 4 million tonnes. It includes twelve truck intake pits; three bulk flat stores with a total storage capacity of 240,000 tonnes; two 1.6 km pipe conveyors to the new jetty with two 2,200 tph ship loaders, and weighing and sampling facilities.
