Major dates processing project in Oman to kick off work in Q2

MUSCAT, January 23, 2020

Construction work on Phase 1 of an industrial-scale dates processing complex is set to kick off in the next quarter at a site in the Wilayat of Nizwa in Oman’s Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, said a report.

The project is being spearheaded by Nakheel Oman Development Company (NODC), a partnership of the Diwan of Royal Court (represented by the Directorate General of the Million Date Palms Plantation Project) and Oman National Investments Development Company SAOC (Tanmia), added the Oman Daily Observer report.

Earlier this week, Nakheel Oman invited contractors to bid for a number of civil works and construction contracts linked to the development of a ‘post-harvesting complex’ at Nizwa.

Simply known as the ‘Industrial Complex’, the sprawling facility will be suitably designed and equipped to receive, store, refrigerate, process, value-add, package and distribute the prodigious quantities of fresh dates that will be harvested from the network of farms operated by the Million Date Palms Plantation Project around the sultanate, added the report.
