Muscat: The Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE) has floated a tender, inviting contracting firms to build infrastructure facilities at the Samail Industrial Estate (SIE) in Ad Dakhliya region.
The PEIE earlier said that the infrastructure would be established according to the highest standards of quality and safety in addition to providing support services.
The estate aims at attracting investments from within and outside the Sultanate and will focus on providing services in accordance with the requirements of investors. For instance, advanced telecommunication services will be offered at the estate along with several facilities, which will provide entertainment amenities for the estate's employees.
Furthermore, the estate has allocated spaces for the establishment of warehouses and logistics services, which add a distinctive feature for investors.
The strategic location of SIE will attract the factories, which are willing to expand close to the capital Muscat and the Rusayl Industrial Estate. In fact, being located on the main road linking Muscat to Ad Dakhiliyah and Ash Sharqiyah governorates, the SIE will position the estate as a strategic location for pushing the industry forward and contributing to the development of the country.
There is currently an existing plant that was officially inaugurated besides around 18 plants under construction. Most of these plants are at an advanced stage of construction and will be inaugurated soon.
SIE is divided into several sectors and for each sector, there will be sufficient space. The estate embraces the food industry, which has achieved 46 per cent of occupancy rate.
