The government of Ras Al Khaimah has signed a US $94 million (AED 348 million) contract with China Harbour Engineering Company to carry out marine works as part of the development and expansion of Hulayla Industrial Park in Ras Al Khaimah.

The marine works contract involves the creation of a 2.5km long inward water channel which will provide direct water access to the Hulayla Industrial Park.

The access channel will be dredged to a depth of 7m and a 5km long quay wall will be constructed around the perimeter of the port basin.
