Reclamation project planned in The Philippines

Work on a new reclamation project at the port of Dumaguete City in The Philippines is expected to commence later this year, say local press reports, with the contract already awarded to a local contractor.

Philippine Ports Authority port manager Renato Tolinero said all construction requirements have been complied with, including the acquisition of an environmental compliance certificate.

The total area to be reclaimed is 1.5 hectares for additional berthing and storage facility.
