Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) has won a contract to upgrade R. Angolhitheem Harbor.

The estimated value of the project is $2.8 million. Also, this development scheme will be completed within one year, MTCC reports.

The R. Angolhitheem Harbor project consists of;

  • dredging and reclamation operations of 42,000cbm;
  • construction of a 221m breakwater;
  • 166m revetment;
  • 91.44m quay wall;
  • installation of 1110sqm paved area, etc.

Furthermore, the agreement for the Angolhitheem Harbor development program was signed yesterday.

However, Angolhitheemu – one of the islands in Raa Atoll with population of 500 people – is one of the islands in which the early settlers of Maldives lived.

Equally important, the island is located 187.44 km north of the country’s capital, MalĂ©. In fact, this island is a medium-sized island, with a total area of 34 ha (84 acres).
