Hasco secures key Amaala earthworks deal

September 2020

Amaala, the ultra-luxury integrated wellness project situated along Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast, has awarded the contract for excavation, backfilling, and earthworks to a local startup, Hasco (Hasan Al-Harbi Corporation).

Based in Duba, a small city on the northern Red Sea coast, Hasco specialises in providing marine and logistics services.

In line with the contract, Hasco has deployed a team of 90 across Triple Bay Marina to manage the excavation of the Amaala’s marina basin.

The Saudi start-up has also overseen the installation of critical infrastructure, including access roads, and the construction of on-site offices, following the initial preparation works across the Amaala site.

Set in the Prince Mohammad bin Salman Natural Reserve, Amaala – the 4,155-sq-km year-round destination – will include 2,500 hotel keys and more than 800 residential villas, apartments and estate homes, alongside 200 high-end retail establishments, fine dining, wellness and recreational facilities.

Its trio of communities – Triple Bay, Coastal Development and The Island – will represent three different sets of experiences for visitors. 

CEO Nicholas Naples says: “Amaala is pleased to be continuing our work with Hasco. Their contribution has been intrinsic to the progress of Amaala to date and will continue to do so. As a Duba-based contractor, Hasco’s knowledge and expertise of the local market has been invaluable in ensuring the high standards of quality we want to instill in every aspect of Amaala.”

“Their appointment for the earthworks of Triple Bay’s marina also furthers our commitment to support Saudi companies and contribution to employment within the kingdom,” states Naples.

“Overseeing all stages of development, Amaala’s environmental team will continue to ensure work is being carried out in line with the destination’s sustainability and environmental guidelines,” he adds.

Hasco Managing Director Hassan Al Harbi says: “It is worth noting that Amaala has participated with the local community in the region in the initial establishment stages through providing our marine, logistics, and hospitality services, and later signed us to implement Amaala first project, Triple Bay (marina) – early earthworks.”

Once developed, Triple Bay’s marina basin will overlook the Red Sea, one of the world’s most ancient and unchartered bodies of water. The marina basin will form part of Amaala’s yachting portfolio.

With this comprehensive development, Amaala aims to cultivate and lead the yachting culture in the Middle East.
