Bahrain’s new LNG Import Terminal will help meet the Kingdom’s increasing demand for gas to fuel its industrial and urban development. At the end of 2015, Six Construct was awarded the contract to design and build the marine structures, which consist of a double berth jetty for FSU and LNG carriers, protected by a 500-m-long and 15-m-deep breakwater. The design phase was carried out by the BESIX Engineering department.
LNG Terminal – This will be a complex located approximately in 15m of water depth approximately 4.3km north east of the Muharraq Sewage Treatment Plant. This will include an approximately 4km of subsea pipeline and approximately 6km onshore of 24” high pressure gas pipeline. The pipeline will be buried both offshore and onshore. The pipeline will come ashore at a Land-fall Point, where there is a Valve Station that allows the offshore section of pipeline to be isolated.
We cooperate with the design department of Besix Dubai, for the design of the Secondary Small Boat Landing platform which was installed in the berth jetty. Our main concern was the calculation design of the steel connections and the BIM interaction, regarding the steel detailing and the material reports.
