Master Plan Industrial Park Duba, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The National Industrial Cluster Development Program (NICDP) is assisting the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources in exploring the possibilities to establish a new industrial cluster to leverage economic growth and employment for the remote region of Duba at the northern Red Sea coast. Based on a market study, stakeholder input and the potential of the project area, an industrial mix was proposed for the cluster. This led to projections of land-use, numbers of employees and future citizens. A conceptual master plan was drafted for the 320 ha industrial city, and locations were designed for the residential community, public services and facilities, infrastructure and utilities. A financial business case completed the pre-feasibility study.
