Van Oord Wins Several Contracts in the Caspian Sea Region

During the visit of the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to Kazakhstan on Wednesday, 2 December 2015, Van Oord announced the award of several contracts in the Caspian Sea region with a total value of more than $500 million.

The first project is for the dredging of a 68-kilometer-long access channel to a new cargo offloading facility to be operated by TenizService.

Four cutter suction dredgers are removing a total of some 17 million cubic meters of soil in shallow water. The project will enable the expansion of the Prorva port to help facilitate the growth of Kazakhstan’s oil and gas industry.

In the second project Van Oord is performing the preparatory work for the installation of two pipelines in the same region.

This project involves excavating and backfilling two 8 km long trenches. Furthermore, Van Oord is dredging an access channel and the seabed will be leveled.
