Saudi TRSDC signs Mammoet for Red Sea villa installation works

Saudi Arabia – The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer of the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, said it has engaged Mammoet, the world leader in heavy lifting and transport, for work at Sheybarah Island Resort , a key component of the Red Sea Project in Saudi Arabia.

In line with the agreement, Mammoet has been commissioned to install 73 prefabricated villas – specially fabricated off-site by metal production specialist – Grankraft Industries in Sharjah – at the hyper-luxury resort on the island of Sheybarah.

These villas will be collected by Mammoet from the Grankraft shipyards and delivered to the Red Sea Island site. Later, they will be installed on their foundations: on the beach and on the water, he specifies.

The resort, which was designed by Dubai-based architectural firm Killa Design, includes uniquely shaped overwater and beach villas, F&B buildings and other facilities.

Sheybarah Resort is an off-grid, zero energy, zero water Leed Platinum development that extensively promotes sustainable design in all aspects of its surroundings, ultimately creating a hospitality benchmark for regenerative developments.

It is powered by a centralized solar farm and fresh water is provided by a solar powered desalination plant. Waste recycling takes place on the island, minimizing the need to bring or remove materials to or from the island.

Located southeast of the archipelago on the Red Sea, Sheybarah Island is home to a very diverse environment with mangroves, white sand dune beaches and some of the most beautiful and pristine coral reefs in the world harboring many species of fish and other marine animals.

The facade design approach was to minimize the visual impact of the architecture on the environment by using a highly reflective polished stainless steel cladding that reflects the natural surroundings: ocean, sky, dunes of sand and the reef below.

Commenting on the contract win, Jack van den Brink, Managing Director of Mammoet Middle East and Africa, said: “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with The Red Sea Development Company and support them. in the construction of the most spectacular and sustainable project. hotels in the world.”

“Having managed a wide range of projects in the kingdom for over 40 years, we remain committed to responding to the growing number of projects in the kingdom and bringing our global expertise in heavy lifting and transport,” said Jack.

CEO John Pagano said, “For us at TRSDC, this partnership demonstrates our commitment to remain at the forefront of delivering sustainable infrastructure through specialist engineering in the Red Sea.

“A shared vision to do better and set new global standards is essential as we develop world-class destinations and most particularly our unique resort on the island of Sheybarah,” he added.
