The challenge was to find an innovative solution to move the cargo. The current bridge, which was within the premises of a Naval Base, had a load capacity of 300 tonnes, while the cargo and trailer weight exceeded it by far. The solution was to build another pathway over the canal by installing steel plates and beams, while the water was flowing underneath the steel structures, which were removed after the entire cargo passed through safely. The success of the project demonstrated MLC’s ability to meet the deadlines on time despite the challenges faced. MLC’s combined expertise, its partnership with the project owner and the support of the municipality for approving the required permissions resulted in a successful project.Hyundai Heavy Industries, in charge of the Engineering, Procurement & Construction and the project proponent, Saudi Electric Company, cherished Almajdouie efforts.
Safety considerations were always at the foremost of MLC priority for such projects and in everything we do. With the launch of a brand new safety identity, named ‘Amaan’, our management seeks to invigorate our safety culture both at work and in our personal life.
