Hamriyah Free Zone Infrastructure Development Project

Free Zones, sometimes referred to as free trade zones, play a pivotal role in accelerating the country’s economic growth. To attract business, these zones need to have a developed enough infrastructure, and a network of roads that make it accessible. Two days before the 2020 New Year celebrations filled the sky, Al Marwan had delivered the major infrastructure and roadworks development project around Hamriyah Free Zone.

Project Scope

The Hamriyah Free Zone roadworks project, valued at AED 94mln, was commissioned by the Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, and it aimed to improve transportation infrastructure between Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah. The project encompassed the construction of roads, roundabouts, service roads, and secondary streets. Sharjah General Contracting Co., the appointed contractor, hired Al Marwan as the equipment supplier to facilitate the smooth execution of the project.

Efficient Collaboration and Equipment Selection

In collaboration with the engineering consultant, Jacobs Halcrow, Al Marwan provided a wide array of heavy equipment to support the roadworks. The project demanded a range of specialized machinery, including Volvo and Hamm road rollers (tandem & single-drum), pneumatic tire rollers (PTRs), Komatsu and CAT motor graders, Volvo articulated dump trucks, Volvo and Dynapac asphalt pavers, as well as Kato and Tadano mobile cranes. This diverse equipment selection ensured optimal performance and efficiency during construction.

To meet the project completion deadline, work on the Hamriyah Free Zone roadworks development project proceeded around the clock, with teams working diligently in double-shifts. This commitment to continuous work allowed for the timely completion of the project. Al Marwan's reliable equipment played a crucial role in maintaining productivity and meeting the demanding schedule.

Enhancing Connectivity

The successful completion of the infrastructure and roadworks project significantly improved daily access to the Hamriyah Free Zone from Ajman, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, and other Emirates. The enhanced connectivity eased the movement of goods and people, bolstering the development of various sectors within the free zone. Notably, the Hamriyah Free Zone is home to thriving industries such as oil and gas, industrial manufacturing, maritime sectors, and global logistics, further stimulating economic growth in the region.
