Vox Maxima Starts Its Indonesian Job

Van Oord’s largest trailing suction hopper dredger, the Vox Maxima, has started the dredging work for the creation of Pluit City, an artificial island in the bay of Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Pluit City project is being developed by Van Oord–Boskalis joint venture with the completion date set for 2018.

The growth of Jakarta’s population by 800,000 people per year has resulted in ambitious plans for the further development of Jakarta Bay.

Trailing suction hopper dredgers are now dredging the sand that will be used to create the new island of Pluit City. The contract includes installation of stone revetment protection and soil improvement work as well as the dredging services.

Over the last few days, a delegation from Jakarta under the leadership of governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama has been visiting Rotterdam. The party has taken the opportunity of their visit to learn about the development of the city of Rotterdam.

The experience gained from unique land reclamation projects such as Maasvlakte 2 will also contribute to Jakarta’s city planning.
