Van Oord has been awarded the contract for Dubai Harbor marine works, a prestigious mega project in Dubai.

Execution of this capital project will take place from September 2017 to May 2019, Dutch dredging contractor said in its announcement.

“Our responsibilities will include dredging the 12-kilometer navigation channel, reclaiming land and executing vibro compaction,” said Jan Willem Elleswijk, Van Oord’s Area Manager.

“We will be deploying a large trailing suction hopper dredger, and one of our high tech self-propelled cutter suction dredgers. We are looking forward to contributing to yet another Dubai landmark.”

The project, which Van Oord carries out for Projects Link Contracting Co LLC, is the next step in achieving ‘Dubai Tourism Vision 2020’, Dubai’s strategy to attract 20 million visitors per year by 2020. A strategy to which Van Oord has contributed since 2001 by building amongst others Palm Jumeirah, The World and many other artificial islands, said the company.

Dubai Harbor is set to span 185 hectares, and will include berths for 1,400 boats and a cruise terminal.
