Anaklia Development Consortium (ADC) has awarded the early dredging and reclamation works for the Phase 1 Anaklia Deep Sea Port project to Van Oord.

Commenting the latest release, Ronny Solberg, CEO of Anaklia Construction Management team, said: “This is a historical moment, since Georgia has never witnessed marine works of this kind taking into consideration its scale and engineering solutions that are related to conduct reclamation activities.”

The construction of Anaklia Deep Sea Port is an important project that will facilitate trade between Asia and Europe. The port will encourage development within Georgia, enhance regional trade and become a logistical hub. We are proud to be involved in this project and are looking forward to starting the dredging activities with our modern equipment,” added Govert van Oord, Van Oord Area Director Europe within the business unit Dredging.

Van Oord will deploy the self-propelled cutter suction dredger (CSD) Athena to dredge a total amount of 5 million m³ of sand and will also be responsible for the installation of vertical drainage.

The Anaklia Port is planned to enter into commercial operation in December 2020 and is expected to become one of the largest ports in the Black Sea region with a handling capacity of up to 10,000 TEU vessels.
