• Building a Megaproject
    When complete the New Port will be
    equipped to handle the world's largest
    ships. Building this megaproject
    requires considerable technical complexity,
    thousands of skilled labourers and
    hundreds of pieces of heavy plant equipment.
  • Safety First
    The New Port Project marked another milestone
    in December 2013 with the achievement of
    14 Million man hours without a Lost Time Incident.
    The achievement is a credit to the strong safety
    culture on site, underpinned by the Project’s
    commitment to the concept of 'Safety for Life'
    as a core value.
  • Environmental Protection
    The New Port Project is committed to sustainability
    and safeguarding marine habitats and ecosystems.
    In coordination with the Ministry of Environment,
    3,200 mangroves, 10,000 m2 of sea grass and
    10,000 hard corals have been relocated.
    All transplanting to date has presented survivability
    rates on par with industry norms.
  • Building the Quay Wall
    The New Port Project celebrated a milestone
    on 1 July 2012 with the laying of the first
    precast concrete block of the Port's 8km
    quay wall. Upon completion this earth retaining
    structure, which will shape the harbour and
    enable ships to berth, will include over 35,000
    concrete blocks. With each concrete block
    weighing between 37 and 96 tonnes, and with more
    than 1 million m3 of C40 concrete being used
    in the construction process, the wall will
    take more than two years to build.
  • Breaking Ground
    The Deputy Emir and Heir Apparent H.H. Sheikh
    Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani laid the foundation
    stone of the New Port Project on 10 October 2011.
    Also present at the ground-breaking ceremony
    were the Deputy Prime Minister and Chief of the
    Emiri, the Minister of Energy and Industry,
    the Chairman of the New Port Project Steering
    Committee and other dignitaries and diplomats.

New Port Project

On 19 June 2007 His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, issued Emiri Decree No. 37, setting forth the creation of one of the world's largest greenfield port developments. Strategically located south of Doha, the QAR 27 Billion (USD 7.4 Billion) megaproject, which includes a new port, a new base for the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces and the Qatar Economic Zone 3, will span a 26.5 square kilometer area.

Qatar Television has produced a documentary featuring the NPP project in its construction phase. The documentary follows the project team around the busy site where they must carefully balance the often dangerous blasting and heavy excavation work with concerns for the safety of more than 3000 workers as well as the environmental impact of the port.

In collaboration with Al Jazeera Documentary Channel the New Port Project is producing a documentary that will provide a behind the scenes look at the New Port megaproject by introducing many of the individuals diligently working to responsibly transform 26.5 square kilometers of sand into one of the world's largest Greenfield port developments.
