Natural Plantation & Biodiversity Eco Park
Under the patronage of HRH Prince Saud Bin Nayef Bin Abdulaziz, Governor of the Eastern Province, Saudi Aramco launched its initiative to plant a million trees in the Kingdom by 2025. The initiative includes planting 26 types of trees and seedlings that do not consume large amounts of water, in order to preserve the kingdom’s natural resources.
As part of this initiative FOQSCO was awarded the project for development of the Natural Plantation and Eco-park project at Haradh Gas Plant which would cover an area of approximately 437,500 SQM with 3000 trees being planted in it. The idea was to create an area that was not only sustainable with minimal human intervention but could be enjoyed by the passersby as well. In light of this the Eco-park project featured a channel and pond with running water and a walkway going around it which would light up with solar powered lamps. The pumping system for irrigation and flow of water inside the pond and channel were also solar powered.
