The Tuas Terminal Phase 1 (TTP1) Mega Port Project in Singapore is in full swing, DEME Group said in its latest announcement.
The contours of the container terminal are now clearly taking shape, with the caissons being placed to form the structure of the future 8.6 km quay wall.
TTP1 project includes construction of a new port terminal with 20 deep-water berths having a total capacity of 20 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) per annum.
To achieve this, more than 80 million cubic meters of reclamation fill will be used comprising dredged materials from the seabed, excavated materials from other land-based projects and sea sand.
DEME’s most powerful rock cutter suction dredgers and a trailer suction dredger have been deployed for the dredging works in order to complete the project by 2021.
