Neom’s floating city, Oxagon, will be the “world’s biggest floating structure.”

The floating city will be built in the southwestern area of Neom in Saudi Arabia. A futuristic new megacity that will be 33 times the size of New York City, as the Saudi authorities claim.

On average, the Red Sea, which is 500 meters deep, is where half of Oxagon will float.

The city is expected to be powered solely by renewable energy. It will use the Internet of Things, artificial and predictive intelligence, and robotics. This technology will help create “a seamless integrated, intelligent and efficient supply chain.”

Oxagon is prominently part of a bigger initiative known as Saudi Vision 2030. The Saudi crown made this plan to diversify the country’s economy away from its increased dependence on oil.

As part of this transformative agenda, Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud and Mohammed bin Salman have revealed 47 key projects. Oxagon is just one of them.

This project emphasizes the leadership’s unwavering commitment to ensure sustainability and foster innovation within the country.
