Saudi Cruise Berth Improvement

Opening up the Kingdom To Cruise Liners


    Projects Company for Marine (PC Marine)


    Dammam, Yanbu & Jeddah Port - KSA

    Completion Date:

    2021 - Ongoing

    Capital Cost

    SAR 21m


    Ports and Harbours


    Opening the Kingdom to Tourism is part of Saudi Vision 2030 and requires a strategic approach. The Red Sea Cruise Company selected three ports on the East and West coasts (Dammam, Yanbu, and Jeddah) to develop temporary cruise terminals to support the growing tourist traffic in the cruise sector. These ports were expanded to accommodate super cruise liners capable of carrying up to 7,000 passengers. The contractor, Projects Company for Marine Services LLC (PC Marine), was appointed to implement modifications that consisted of the supply, and installation of 200T bollards, cone fenders, and permanent fences, as well as the structural assessment for the following berths: Berth 9 and 10 – Jeddah Islamic Port, Berths 14 and 15 - Damman Port and Berth 2 at Yanbu Port.

    Our Role

    The contractor appointed ByrneLooby to provide the detailed design of the fenders and bollards and assess the capacity of the existing quay walls at each port for the new design loads. ByrneLooby partnered with Trelleborg to assist with designing, manufacturing, and supplying the fender systems. Our role involved leading and coordinating the condition assessment for each site to validate the as-built drawings and recommend any remedial works required before installing the new fender systems.

    Value Add

    ByrneLooby undertook a mooring analysis to establish the mooring loads and optimise the anchor block dimensions required for the new bollards. In addition, our design included locally available reinforcement that shaved the time off programme and reduced the project's costs.
