The Oman Aquarium is a premier visitor attraction at the Mall of Muscat, a vast multi-purpose retail and entertainment venue.
The multi-story, 5,600-square-meter aquarium has a 1,800,000-litre main tank viewed through a 9-meter x 7-meter viewing panel that weighs 30 tonnes.
Al Jarwani Entertainment contracted AAT to design, construct and deliver this project including a review of the concept, schematics and complete design development including the interior architecture.
To accelerate construction, AAT concurrently manufactured Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) exhibit tanks offsite at global prefabrication hub, complete with rockwork and theming.
AAT was also responsible for life support systems as well as acrylic thermoforming and bonding.
Advanced Aquarium Technologies’ sister-company – AAT Acrylics – manufactured and supplied the acrylic.
