CCCC Dredging Wins Davao Land Reclamation Contract

CCCC Dredging, one of the world’s largest players in the dredging industry, has won a contract to build four artificial islands totaling 208 hectares of reclaimed land in the Davao area, the Philippines.

The agreement was signed during the Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit to China last week, according to the Beijing Youth Daily.

These artificial islands will spread along eight kilometers of coastline and will be used for government buildings, commercial spaces, residences, ports and industry.

Under the Davao project, a perimeter of sand bags will be dropped into the sea and sand pumped into the space, displacing water until an island is formed.

It is expected that this capital land reclamation scheme will be completed by 2019.

This contract was just one of several signed during Duterte’s visit to China.
