              ARCADIS N.V. : ARCADIS manages new port for Aqaba

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading pure play global engineering and
consultancy firm, has won a contract with Aqaba Development Corporation in
Jordan for providing construction management services and design reviews for
their "Aqaba New Port Project". ARCADIS works in a joint venture with the
local company Dar Al Hadasah. Financials details were not disclosed.

The Aqaba New Port Project is one of the most important projects within the
Hasehmite Kingdom of Jordan, aiming at turning Aqaba into a regional maritime
hub. Once the New Port has opened, it will incorporate a general cargo and
roll-on, roll-off terminal, as well as grain and ferry terminals. The project
is being implemented in four different construction contracts, of which three
have commenced. The New Aqaba Port is scheduled to be in operation in 2014.

In 2006, Aqaba's main port was relocated from the city center to an area to
the south with deeper waters, while the land formerly occupied by the port was
sold to developers to establish a mixed-use waterfront neighborhood and
business district.

"ARCADIS already is present in the region for many years and has been involved
earlier in the port of Aqaba", says Frank Heezen, director ports and waterways
at ARCADIS. "We were chosen because we are one of the few companies in the
world that can handle big scale projects requiring international experience
and local know-how."
