PHOTO: Creating Pluit City

The dredging work for the creation of Pluit City, an artificial island in the bay of Jakarta, Indonesia, is moving ahead.

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, which is being undertaken by the Van Oord – Boskalis joint venture, includes the installation of stone revetment protection and soil improvement work as well as the dredging services. The project will be delivered in 2018.

Today, we are bringing you this beautiful photo of one of Van Oord’s largest trailing suction hopper dredgers, Vox Maxima, during its work on this capital land reclamation project.
