About New Port Project
In the coming years Qatar will see significant growth in the importation of raw materials and goods, underscoring the need for a new advanced commercial port facility. The New Port, strategically located outside the capital city of Doha, will be a world-class facility, a leader in state-of-the-art technologies and a vital component of Qatar's economic infrastructure.
As Qatar heads toward hosting the World Cup in 2022, the New Port Project continues its path toward operational readiness by 2016; reflecting the country's ambitious expansion plans envisaged in the Qatar National Vision 2030. In turn, master planning for the New Port is closely aligned with the Qatar National Vision 2030 pillars of environmental, economic, human and social development.
Balancing development with protection of the environment is a key concern for the New Port and construction is taking place with environmental preservation paramount; multiple simulation studies, physical modeling, geotechnical and metoceanic analysis and in-depth environmental studies have been undertaken in order to facilitate a responsible implementation of the project.
