Bechtel has been appointed as the Project Management Consultant for TROJENA, a year-round mountain destination in the NEOM region of northwest Saudi Arabia. TROJENA is a key development that will contribute to the Kingdom's Vision 2030 goals of growing tourism and diversifying its economy away from hydrocarbons. In this role, Bechtel is excited to provide services including technical, commercial and construction management, for the development of TROJENA and supporting NEOM’s ambitions for sustainability. TROJENA is 50km from the Gulf of Aqaba coast in the heart of NEOM's mountainous region, spanning over 1,400 square kilometers, with elevations ranging from 1,500m to 2,600m. Fifty-seven square kilometers will be dedicated to the main development, which will benefit from the unique mountain climate in the region, where temperatures drop below zero in the winter. Such conditions will allow TROJENA to offer the Gulf's first outdoor ski experience and host the 2029 Asian Winter Games after submitting the winning bid. TROJENA is a unique year-round mountain destination in NEOM like no other on earth. Six distinctive development districts - Gateway, Discover, Valley, Explore, Relax and Fun – will blend, together with the natural landscape, to offer human-centric experiences for residents and visitors alike. Situated at the heart of NEOM, 50 kilometers from the Gulf of Aqaba coast, TROJENA will be the Gulf's first outdoor ski resort, staging world-class sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts, and cultural festivals. Due to its high elevation and central location, TROJENA will redefine luxury living and travel offerings as a global sanctuary of wellbeing. Like the rest of the NEOM, TROJENA will be powered entirely by renewable energy while sustainably protecting the region's rich cultural and environmental heritage. TROJENA is planned to complete and welcome visitors and new residents in late 2026 and will host the Asian Winter Games in 2029.
