Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) completed land reclamation works in Shaviyani Atoll Komandoo earlier this week, local media reports. 

Following the project completion, the island of Komandoo – which had previously been seven hectares in size – has now been expanded to approximately seventeen hectares.

The land reclamation program started on April 5th, with the use of MTCC’s trailing suction hopper dredger Mahaa Jarraafu.

The TSHD was also used to reclaim land to develop airports on the islands of Kulhudhufushi and Funadhoo.

According to the Komandoo island council, the Maldives government plans to relocate the powerhouse and waste management center and build 50 housing units in the reclaimed area.
