Funadhoo Land Reclamation Scheme Kicks Off

The land reclamation operations for new airport development project at Funadhoo island of Shaviyani Atoll are now underway, local media reports. 

The project, conducted by the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company’s new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Mahaa Jarraafu, will be completed in a month’s time.

According to the island’s council, the dredging pipes have already been installed so the sand dredged up from the seabed can be brought to the area set for reclamation.

Under this major development program, a total of 21 hectares of new land will be reclaimed.

Funadhoo will be the second island that the new TSHD will be used to reclaim the land to develop an airport.
