DEME in Singapore: Important Milestone for Tuas Terminal Project

DEME Group has just released the latest update on their Tuas Terminal Phase 1 Port Development Project in Singapore, announcing the completion of Finger Pier 2’s Quay Wall Perimeter.

According to DEME, the remainder of 380 ha of land can now be reclaimed for the new terminal, also known as finger piers.

When completed, the 21 deep-water berths under Phase 1 will be able to handle 20 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) per annum. The entire mega-terminal will have a total capacity of up to 65 million TEUs.

The Tuas Terminal will be developed in four phases over a span of 30 years, with Phase 1 scheduled for completion in the early 2020s.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has appointed the Dredging International Asia Pacific (DIAP)-DAELIM Joint Venture to carry out the land reclamation and related works for the Tuas Terminal Phase 1 project.

Works will include reclaiming 294 hectares of land, dredging the Tuas Basin and Temasek Fairway, as well as constructing the wharf.
