DEME’s CSDs busy on Abu Qir port project

The Abu Qir port project in Egypt, undertaken by DEME Group, is moving forward according to schedule.

The largest ever dredging and land reclamation contract in DEME’s history includes the reclamation of 1,000 hectares of new land.

It also involves deepening of the port’s approach channel to 23m and dredging of a turning basin to 22m.
