ADBP Completes Dredging Project in Angola

PAENAL have been constructing a fabrication yard and port facilities to cater for the growing offshore oil and gas market in Angola (Porto Aboim).

Construction of the site commenced in 2007 but since then the demand has grown significantly. The Port is now being deepened in conjunction with the construction of a new 450m long quay wall. This will enable the facility to handle some of the biggest FPSO vessels in the world.

ADBP were employed to manage all aspects of the capital dredging and associated works contract including contract drafting, tender analysis and supervision of the works. Approximately 600,000m³ of sand and marine sediment was dredged. The work scope also included the removal, by divers, of 5 disused hydrocarbon pipelines that crossed the basin above the required design level.

The Port continued to be fully operational during the works, with numerous other adjacent construction projects also being undertaken concurrently.
