Bauer completes piles for Red Sea tourism project

The $5.2 billion Red Sea project is being developed on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, 500 km north of the city of Jeddah. By 2030, a total of 28,000 m² of beaches, desert, mountains and volcanic areas spread over 22 islands will be transformed into a luxury tourist destination.

The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) describes it as a “regenerative” project, which aims to protect, preserve and enhance the environment of the archipelago. Its goal is to achieve 100% reliance on renewable energy, a total ban on single-use plastics and zero waste to landfill.

TRSDC has appointed Archirodon, a specialist in maritime contracts, to design and build three bridges for the project.

Archirodon commissioned Saudi Bauer Foundation Contractors, a subsidiary of Bauer Spezialtiefbau, to install the piles for the bridge structures.

In the first phase of the project, Bauer carried out a load test on three test piles. And in the second phase, it installed a total of 37 land piles with a diameter of 1,300 mm for two new bridges.

For the central bridge, which connects the main island of Shurayrah to the mainland, 60 piles with a diameter of 1,500 mm and 27 piles with a diameter of 1,300 mm were installed. This constituted the third phase of the offshore project.
