Jan De Nul Group announce important contracts in Indonesia, Russia and Australia, and new giant dredger due soon from builders.

In Indonesia an offshore island will be reclaimed. These works are a part of a large scale reclamation development north of Jakarta, where a 260 ha island is developed for Kapuk Naga Indah and designed for housing and recreation. One of Jan De Nul Group’s jumbo trailing suction hopper dredgers will be deployed.

In Russia, Jan De Nul Group has signed a contract for the dredging works for the first phase of the Yamal LNG project. The project is located near the village of Sabetta, on the north-east of the Yamal Peninsula. Quays will be built for receiving large LNG plant process modules and construction material. The access channel and port basin of the port of Sabetta will be dredged. This port will serve as a key element of the transport infrastructure for the Yamal LNG Project. The project includes the design and construction work for a complete onshore LNG facility. A dozen of dredgers will be deployed to carry out these dredging works.

In Australia, an offshore project has been awarded to Jan De Nul Group. The job is linked to a pipeline stabilisation project. Rockberms will be installed in water depths of more than 150 m, pipeline shore approaches trenched and the seabed prepared for offshore platforms. After installation the platforms will be ballasted with crushed iron ore.

The new 200-m long and 40-m wide fall pipe vessel ‘Joseph Plateau’, which is the largest of its kind in the world, will be mobilized immediately upon delivery from the shipyard in Bilbao early April.
