Van Oord’s new Jakarta port project

The company which built Dubai’s iconic artificial islands Palm Jumeirah and The World, Dutch-based marine engineering and land reclaiming specialist Van Oord, has won a $200 million deal to deepen the port and reclaiming land for a new terminal area in Tanjung Priok, Jakarta, the largest container port in Indonesia.

The client for the large port expansion is Indonesian Port Corporation, IPC, Van Oord said. The entire project will take approximately 3 years to complete and provides a sustainable impetus on the economic growth of Indonesia. The dredging work will begin in the second quarter of 2013 and will be completed over the course of 24 months.

Van Oord’s CEO Pieter van Oord said the Tanjung Priok project includes the deepening of the port, including expanding and deepening the access channel. A total of 25 million cubic meters of material will be moved. Most of the material will be pumped into closed basins adjacent to the new terminal for further expansion of the port. Approximately 10 million cubic meters of sand will be removed from the seabed in preparation for construction of the new terminal.

Van Oord is also working elsewhere in Indonesia on constructing a poldered island for the Kapuk Nagah Indah project intended for residential construction on the north side off the coast of Jakarta. The Dutch also maintain the access channel to the port of Bengkulu on the island of Sumatra.
