Oman's Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn) has laid the foundation stone for a
new administration and facility building at Samail Industrial City in the sultanate.
This project comes in line with the government’s efforts to advance the comprehensive and sustainable development in the various governorates of the sultanate, reported Oman News Agency (ONA), citing a top government official.
"The project also represents a great importance to the Wilayat of Samail in general and the industrial city in particular," stated Dr Khalifa bin Hamad Al Sa'adi, Governor of A'Dakhiliyah, after laying the foundation stone.
Samail Industrial City is divided into several sectors for the localisation of a number of industries including food, plastic materials, steel, marble and building materials besides other key industries comprising chemicals, glass, wood, fiberglass, and supporting services sector (warehouses).
The facility, which has a total building area of 16,000 sq m, is being built at a cost of around RO4.5
million ($11.65 million) by Madayn's investment arm Shumookh.
The project will consist of eight floors (ground plus seven floors) with a rental area reaching 12,280 sq m, which will offer various services for the workforce in Samail Industrial City and neighbouring areas, said the report.
It will offer a range of services associated with the industrial work including space dedicated to public and private bodies, commercial stores, banks, international cafes and restaurants, space for telecom companies, rental space, among other services, it added.
