DEME has just announced that they won several new contracts in Africa with a total value of approximately EUR125 million.

The contracts were awarded over the last few weeks for projects in Angola, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia and Nigeria.

In Angola, a 5-year maintenance dredging contract has been awarded by Angola LNG for its gas terminal in Soyo. Works will start by mid of June 2017, DEME said.

In Benin, DEME was awarded a contract for coastal protection works at the Cotonou shoreline. Works will include beach nourishment with a total volume of 1,5 million m³ as well as revetment works and groyne construction.

In Ghana, the company participates in a contract for the Tema Port expansion project.

“Ghana’s main seaport, operated by Meridian Port Services (MPS), is gearing up to accommodate some of the world’s largest container ships and increase cargo handling services and capacity. The project includes dredging and land reclamation of 3 million m³. Works are set to start by the end of May 2017,” the press release said.

In Ivory Coast, a contract has been awarded for the maintenance dredging of the port of Abidjan. Works will be executed this month. It is the third consecutive time that DEME is contracted by the Port Autonome d’Abidjan to maintain the port, the company said.

DEME also returns to Liberia for maintenance dredging works in the Freeport of Liberia. The contract has been awarded by Liberia’s National Ports Authority.

In Nigeria, DEME acquired a contract for the Maiyegun Waterfront development in Lagos. DEME reclaims approximately 600,000 m³ to raise the level of an existing beach.

Maiyegun Waterfront will include new housing units, a commercial hub, as well as leisure facilities.

The contract in Nigeria follows the recently won project for the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics Base (LADOL), where DEME is involved in the yard and quay wall construction, as well as the dredging of the berth pocket and access channel to the quay, on behalf of Samsung Heavy Industries.
