Appointment of Hasco aligns with Amaala’s commitment to supporting Saudi companies and contributing to employment in the Kingdom
A contract has been awarded by Amaala for excavation, backfilling and earthworks to startup Hasco (Hasan Al-Harbi Corporation). The startup offers marine logistics services and is based in Duba on the northern Red Sea Coast.
As part of the contract, Hasco has deployed a team of 90 in the Triple Bay Marina area of the megaproject to manage the excavation of the marina basin. The startup has also overseen the installation of critical infrastructure, including access roads and the construction of on-site offices, following the initial preparation works across the Amaala site.
Set in the Prince Mohammad bin Salman Natural Reserve across three communities, Amaala is billed as a year-round destination. It will include 2,500 hotel keys and more than 800 residential villas, apartments and estate homes, alongside 200 high-end retail establishments, fine dining, wellness and recreational facilities. Its trio of communities – Triple Bay, Coastal Development and The Island – will represent three different sets of experiences for visitors, the statement said.
“Amaala is pleased to be continuing our work with Hasco. Their contribution has been intrinsic to the progress of Amaala to date and will continue to do so. As a Duba-based contractor, Hasco’s knowledge and expertise of the local market has been invaluable in ensuring the high standards of quality we want to instill in every aspect of Amaala. Their appointment for the earthworks of Triple Bay’s marina also furthers our commitment to support Saudi companies and contribution to employment within the kingdom,” said Amaala CEO Nicholas Naples.
He added, “Overseeing all stages of development, Amaala’s environmental team will continue to ensure work is being carried out is in line with the destination’s sustainability and environmental guidelines.”
Once developed, Triple Bay’s marina basin will overlook the Red Sea, which is said to be one of the world’s most ancient and unchartered bodies of water. The marina basin will form part of Amaala’s yachting portfolio, offering a natural combination of clear waters, and year-round breeze, the firm said in its statement.
Hasco MD Hassan Al Harbi explained, “It is worth noting that Amaala has participated with the local community in the region in the initial establishment stages through providing our marine, logistics, and hospitality services, and later signed us to implement Amaala first project (Triple Bay (Marina) – Early Earth Works).”
Already traversed by hundreds of luxury yachts migrating from Asia to the Mediterranean every year, a lack of infrastructure in the area has prevented the growth of luxury yachting for domestic and international visitors alike. With this comprehensive development, Amaala aims to cultivate and lead the yachting culture in the Middle East, the statement said.
