VIDEO: Dredger Oranje in South Korea

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. launched this month the second edition of its magazine ‘Creating New HORIZONS’.

In the publication, Boskalis highlighted a number of fascinating projects, including the expansion of the futuristic Songdo City in South Korea.

The work involved extending and deepening five entrance channels and the harbor basins of the city of Incheon and using the dredged material (23 million m3) as the basis for the extension of ‘Songdo City’ in three major land reclamation operations. The project represented almost one and a half years of work for their trailing suction hopper dredger Oranje.

The hopper pumped the material to the reclamation area through a pipeline (with some floating sections) covering an impressive distance of six kilometers.

Today, we are bringing you a video about this capital land reclamation project:
