Context and challenges
A major industrial city was born out of Saudi Arabia's ambition to develop the country through a pioneering and prosperous model of excellence in several significant sectors. This projects represents a world-class centre, comprising industrial and technological value chains.
The project, started a few years ago, took in several sectoral strategies (e.g. energy, agri-food, sport, etc.) and various regional strategies. A review and integration phase has been necessary to ensure that all sectors were aligned with each other and closely linked to the overall vision.
The industrial city will cover approximately 200-250 km² of surface area, with one part located on a sea coast.
In this context, this client, a company created for the development of the industrial city, has mandated Assystem to carry out an evaluation of the area, select the site and deliver site characterization services for the construction of the port.
