VIDEO: Installation of 1st Caisson at Tuas Terminal Port

Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has just released a behind-the-scene video about the construction and installation of the 1st caisson at the Tuas Terminal Port Phase 1 development.

Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport, Khaw Boon Wan, marked the initiation ceremony on April 29, 2016 by launching the first caisson.

In total, 222 such caissons will form the permanent wharf structure.

The Dredging International Asia Pacific-Daelim Joint Venture (DDJV) will be responsible for the erection of an 8.6-kilometer quay wall and its foundation, the dredging of the fairway and basins, as well as the reclamation of 294 hectares of new land.

To achieve this, more than 80 million cubic meters of reclamation fill will be used comprising dredged materials from the seabed, excavated materials from other land-based projects and sea sand.

This EUR 1.67 billion worth project is expected to be complete within six years. When completed, the new terminal will be able to handle about 20 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) per annum.
