Al Hosn Logistics and Warehousing Services, a subsidiary of Al Hosn Investment Company (HIC), signed an agreement with Amjaad Engineering & Contracting, earlier this month, to expand its existing facility at Sohar Free Zone at an additional investment of RO2.5mn.
Construction work on the expansion process is expected to be undertaken shortly by Amjaad Engineering & Contracting. It will take the total built-up area of the facility to 22,000sqm, from its current 12,500sqm.
Osama Mariam, CEO of HIC, pointed out that the expansion project would witness the establishment of cold storage warehouses, a first of its kind in Sohar Free Zone. “We have hired Corduff Oman as consultants to undertake the expansion work, design and supervision which will see both structural additions as well as upgradation of the facilities within the warehouse. It will add to the ease and convenience of companies seeking warehousing and storage facilities to handle overflow of inventory,” he said.
He added that the new project would take the total investment to above RO5mn.
As per the plan, the cold storage warehouses will be divided into 21 chambers, featuring controlled temperature ranging from -30°C to 7°C.
The project is expected to be completed by year end 2020.
