Van Oord has in consortium been awarded work associated with the expansion of the Singapore Tuas Mega Port development.

Jurong Town Corporation awarded the reclamation project of Tuas Finger One to the consortium, comprising of Hyundai, Samsung, Penta Ocean, Van Oord and Boskalis. The total contract value is SGD 960 million and the combined Van Oord/Boskalis share is approximately EUR 100 million.

It is expected that the majority of the 24.5 million cubic meters of sand required for this project will be supplied by long distance bulk carriers. In addition to the land reclamation work, the consortium will undertake dredging and construct 3.4 kilometers of quay wall. Work is set to start within the next couple of weeks and will last until late 2018.
