Hall will mobilize to the remote nation – located approximately half-way between Australia and Hawaii – in early 2025 to construct a new seawall on behalf of the RMI Ministry of Public Works, Infrastructure and Utilities.

Hall Contracting CEO & Director, Cameron Hall said that with the majority of RMI’s land situated less than two meters above sea level, the new infrastructure would help to protect residents from rising sea levels and wave overtopping.

The new seawall will be constructed on the Ebeye atoll, using approximately 65,000 tonnes of armour rock to minimise erosion and greatly reduce inundation from storm surges.”

Hall Contracting will mobilize to Ebeye in January 2025 to commence the coastal protection works, which are being funded by the World Bank and Green Climate Fund.
