AECOM has been engaged by the Ministry of Housing to provide the masterplanning, detailed design and cost management services for a project in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Madinat Salman (previously known as Al Madina Al Shamaliya) is a group of 10 reclaimed islands situated on the northern coastline of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The islands are located within a twenty-minute drive of Manama city and a ten-minute drive from the Seef District.
Designed primarily as a residential development, it will also boast a mix of lifestyle, commercial and retail outlets to support the community. The overall site covers approximately 750 hectares. Al Madina Al Shamaliya will provide a total of 15,519 dwelling units with the capacity to support a total residential population of 98,935 people.
A Densoclad™ Tape system was chosen to protect the buried ductile iron water main that serves the new development and all of the pipe lengths were pre-wrapped above ground prior to their installation.
The Densoclad Tape system comprises a coat of Denso Primer D™, followed by Densyl™ Mastic to create a smooth profile over joints etc. Finally a wrap of Densoclad 55HT™ was applied to the pipe lengths with a 55% overlap forming a double layer wrap.
