VIDEO: Completion of New Suez

National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) has just released this very interesting video about the New Suez Canal development project.

NMDC, together with other members of the ‪Challenge Consortium‬ (Jan De Nul‬, Boskalis and Van Oord), recently announced the completion of construction works on the new waterway, which involved dredging of 35 km of a new waterway to a depth of 24 meters and a width of 317 meters.

Egypt is gearing up for the official inauguration of the new channel on Thursday, August 6, 2015 at an event that will draw the participation of heads of states and official delegations from around the world.
