NEOM Awards $4.7bn Trojena Dam Contract to Webuild
The main dam, measuring 145m-high and 475m-long, will contribute to the creation of a 1.5km sq freshwater lake, with an island reserved for botanical activities. This lake, the largest architecturally-crafted body of water in Saudi Arabia, is a central feature of Trojena’s LAVA-designed masterplan.
Pietro Salini, Webuild CEO, expressed pride in being awarded this crucial project: “The 2.8km-long, man-made, freshwater lake will be a key asset in the Trojena masterplan. We believe our team has the global experience and expertise to deliver this exciting infrastructure project.”
Philip Gullett, Executive Director – Region Head at Trojena, highlighted the sustainability aspect of the project: “We are implementing a sustainable approach by using all the rock excavated and reusing it for the lakebed lining and dam construction.”
This project is a significant milestone in NEOM’s development, complementing Webuild’s ongoing work on the high-speed railway line between Oxagon and The Line. The Trojena dam project represents a commitment to sustainability, innovation, and transformative development in the NEOM region.
