VIDEO: Creating New Land in Nigeria

Jan De Nul Group today released this video about the company’s major land reclamation project in Nigeria.

In 2015, JDN started this land reclamation project for the Dangote Group. The African company wanted to build its own oil refinery and fertilizer plant in Lekki, 60 kilometers east of Lagos.

For the project, JDN brought in two of its largest, world leading hopper dredgers. Working continuously from November 2015 to January 2017, JDN reclaimed around 2,400 hectares of new land.

Just off the coast, at a depth of twenty to fifty meters, JDN dredged 55 million cubic meters of sand for this reclamation project.
