Boskalis has been awarded two contracts in Indonesia, including the expansion of the Makassar New Port container terminal on the island of Sulawesi and the land preparation operations for a new petrochemical complex on the island of Java.

Both projects will be executed in the second half of 2019 and carry a combined value of approximately EUR 75 million.

The first project, awarded by construction company PT PP, entails the expansion of a new terminal for the Makassar New Port of port operator PT Pelindo IV by 45 hectares, said Boskalis.

The dredging scope includes the removal of soft clay followed by land reclamation work which requires the dredging and supply of sand. One of Boskalis’ mega trailing suction hopper dredgers will be deployed on this project for a period of approximately half a year, said the company.

For a new petrochemical complex of Lotte Chemical, which will be located in the coastal city Cilegon on the island of Java, Boskalis will prepare 95 hectares of land for construction purposes by supplying sand and improving the soil by means of vertical drainage executed by Boskalis subsidiary Cofra.

This project will be executed for the engineering and construction arm of the South Korean conglomerate Lotte.

Boskalis will deploy a jumbo trailing suction hopper dredger for the dredging activities.
