The Panama Maritime Authority (AMP) held a kick-off ceremony for the construction of the new Amador Cruise Port on October 18.

A complete new cruise terminal at the Pacific side of Panama will be built over the next 18 months, Jan De Nul informed.

The design and construction of the Amador cruise terminal, at Perico Island, was awarded by the AMP to the consortium Cruceros del Pacifico, integrated by Jan De Nul Panama SA and China Harbour Engineering Company.

As explained, this new cruise terminal will have two docks in which two cruise ships with a capacity of up to five thousand passengers each – Oasis class vessels – can berth simultaneously.

“This infrastructure project is key to boost Panama’s economic development,” Juan Carlos Varela, President of the Republic of Panama, pointed out.

As a member of the consortium Cruceros del Pacifico, Jan De Nul Panama SA will take care of all dredging and land reclamation works as required for the construction and operation of the terminal. This includes dredging the berth pocket, turning basin and access channel. A trailing suction hopper dredger will also be deployed to dredge and transport sand from a borrow area and reclaim an area of 8.3 hectares for the construction of all land-based facilities.
