Van Oord Completes Expansion of Taiwan’s Largest Port

Van Oord has completed the expansion of the Port of Kaohsiung eight months ahead of schedule, reported the company on its website.

The client, Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC), awarded the contract in 2015.

In less than two years, trailing suction hopper dredgers Vox Máxima, Volvox Terranova, and Rotterdam created 250 hectares of new land for the Kaohsiung Intercontinental Container Center Phase II.

The availability of the right equipment at the right moment and excellent cooperation within the internationally assembled project team contributed to the early completion and overall success of this project. It was the first time Van Oord had been engaged as a main contractor in Taiwan,” commented Van Oord’s Area Manager Martin Meijers.

The new land will accommodate many terminals and wharves, some of which will be able to handle container vessels of up to 22,000 TEU.

According to Taiwan International Ports Corporation, the expansion project will enable future growth and will strengthen the position of the port of Kaohsiung as Taiwan’s maritime gateway.
