Van Oord, Boskalis to Build Artificial Island Off Jakarta

Van Oord and joint venture partner Royal Boskalis Westminster have won a major land reclamation contract in Indonesia.

The contract, awarded by the PT Muara Wisesa Samudra, includes design and construction of the artificial island under the Dredging and Land Development Project for Pluit City off the coast of Jakarta.

The contract has a value of approximately EUR 350 million (shared equally between Boskalis and Van Oord).

This project involves reclaiming approximately 160 hectares of new land requiring in excess of 20 million cubic meters of dredged sand. Two jumbo trailing suction hopper dredgers will be deployed for the dredging and reclamation activities sourcing sand from local borrow areas.

Soil improvement and rock revetment works also form part of the project. Work will start immediately and the project is expected to be completed in 2018.

When constructed, the new island will be used for both residential and commercial purposes.
