Picture of the Day: Van Oord at Koper

Van Oord, a leading international contractor specializing in dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects, has recently completed the first phase of the Port of Koper dredging project.

During this deepening program, Van Oord removed approximately 230,000 m3 of sea sediments (silt), allowing larger vessels, with a draft of up to 13.5, to enter the port’s Northern part of Basin I.

In addition, a new stacking area of 6.480 m² close to the berthing place for containers vessels also became operational, providing some 600 TEUs of additional storage space.

The mentioned projects are part of the Pier I extension project, which also includes seabed dredging in Basin I to 15 m and construction of an additional 100 m of quayside together with all the equipment. The project, with the estimated value of 78 million euros, will be executed in stages by 2018.
