Doha, Qatar - 17 March 2020: Arcadis has been appointed by QTerminals to provide a full range of project management consultancy services Container Terminal 2 (CT2) Development Phases 1 & 2 at Hamad Port to expand the infrastructure and increase operations whilst supporting the growth plans of Qatar’s maritime sector.
Project work on the 403,500 square metre CT2 commenced in December 2019 and delivery of Phase 1 is scheduled for June 2020 and Phase 2 in December 2020.

Arcadis Account Lead, Fintan Kenny, said: “The Container Terminal 2 development is the first of its kind in the country utilizing environmentally friendly technologies to facilitate sustainable development. Our strong maritime background together with our multidisciplinary technical knowledge led to this significant win for the regional business. The development of this project will significantly contribute to the overall quality and productivity of Hamad Port, and will lead to higher seaborne trade and economic growth for Qatar.”
QTerminals CEO, Neville Bissett, said: “Within a short period of time, we have seen significant growth, so we need to release further infrastructure to handle the growing number of vessels coming to the port. Therefore, CT2 has become a critical expansion of Hamad Port,”
Hamad Port will contribute to the growth of industry and manufacturing in Qatar, whilst facilitating new trading opportunities. Qatar is working to establish sustainable connections with new ports in India, Pakistan, East Africa, the Far East and the northern Gulf.
