Van Oord awarded contract for quay wall in Dubai

News – July 22, 2008

Van Oord has been awarded a contract to build a 5.5km quay wall on the Deira Islands in Dubai.

Van Oord has already received an award for a 3.5km quay wall for the same project.

The new order brings to 9km the length of quay wall that Van Oord will build on the Deira Islands.

Three rock-dumping pontoons will be deployed to carry out the project, which will take approximately 65 weeks to complete and is valued at approximately Euros 60 million.

The Deira Islands are part of the Deira Development, which is among the largest land reclamation projects in the world.
