Announced:
31 Jul 2017
Construction Start:
07 Aug 2019
Opening:

Area:
  1. Heavy-lift specialist Mammoet has been hired to transport and install 73 stainless steel pods that will be villas at Saudi Arabia’s “hyper luxury” Sheybarah Island Resort, part of the country’s Red Sea tourism mega project.




    The villas are being manufactured by Grankraft Industries in Sharjah, UAE and Mammoet will have to ship them to the Red Sea and fix them to their foundations, where they will hang over the water. To minimise the resort’s visual impact on ecologically-diverse Sheybarah Island, Dubai-based architects Killa Design specified a mirror-like stainless steel cladding for the pods that reflects the natural surroundings.

  8. Saudi Arabia's Red Sea project plans to build 50 luxury hotels by 2030.

    Six Senses and St Regis hotels will be the first to open, and guests will be welcomed already from the beginning of 2023. These will be followed by EDITION, Fairmont, Raffles, SLS, Grand Hyatt, Intercontinental Hotels and Resorts and Jumeirah.

    The gateway to the Red Sea Project will be Shurayrah Island, where Foster + Partners is designing a hub called Coral Bloom to accommodate the debut hotels. Part of an archipelago of 90 islands, just 22 of them will be developed, meaning 75 per cent of them will be protected. The destination also features desert dunes, mountain canyons, dormant volcanoes, and ancient cultural and heritage sites.
    By 2030, the Red Sea Project expects to host one million visitors annually (capped in line with its sustainability ambitions), creating upwards of 70,000 new jobs and contributing US$5.3 billion to the nation’s GDP once fully operational.
    The first phase of the Red Sea Project is due to be completed by the end of 2023, with a total of 16 hotels offering 3,000 hotel rooms on five islands and two inland sites. It will also include a luxury marina, an 18-hole golf course, leisure and entertainment facilities, and an international airport that will be accessible to 80 percent of the world's population in less than eight hours and is expected to serve up to one million passengers per year by 2030.

    Upon completion of the project in 2030, the site will host 50 hotels offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and around 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland areas.

    The Red Sea project is going to operate all tourist facilities on biofuel, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

    TRSDC has chosen the German firm MAN Energy Solutions to supply it with 25 sets of biofuel generators with a total production capacity of 112 MW.

    The tourist destination will rely on renewable energy supplies, like solar plants that will include storage batteries powered by MAN gensets in six different locations. If solar energy isn’t available, there will be biofuel running on generator sets.

    “The importance of the Red Sea destination lies in its support for the economic diversification strategy pursued by Saudi Arabia by providing job opportunities, encouraging entrepreneurship, and attracting local and foreign investments in the Kingdom, as part of Vision 2030”

    LONGi, a key Chinese solar technology company, has announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply 406MW of its Hi-MO 5 bifacial modules to the SepcoIII Electric Power Construction Company towards development of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea Project.
    The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world's most ambitious regenerative tourism project, awarded its highest-value contract to date to a consortium led by Acwa Power to design, build, operate and transfer the project's utilities infrastructure, generating up to 650,000 MWh of CO2 free power.

    The CO2 emissions saved are the equivalent of some half a million tons annually. Included in the package is the world's largest battery storage facility of 1000MWh, which will allow the destination to remain completely off-grid and powered by renewables day and night.


    The agreement also covers the construction of three seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) plants, designed to provide clean drinking water, a solid waste management center and an innovative sewage treatment plant (STP) that is expected to allow waste to be managed in a way that enhances the environment, by creating new wetland habitats and supplementing the venue with irrigation water for landscaping.
