Van Ord Boasts Order Intake

Van Oord has won two orders in Brazil and the Bahamas, worth a combined worth EUR 100 million ( USD 134.6 million).

 
The activities involve dredging work for the construction of a new shipyard in Aracruz, Brazil.

The client is Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (EJA), a Brazilian subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard from Singapore.

The shipyard has been designed for the building and maintenance of specialist vessels and constructions for the oil and gas industry in Brazil.

The work involves the construction of an access channel, turning basin and moorings at the quays.

A total of 6 million m3 of material will be dredged for the construction of the new port. For this purpose, Van Oord will be deploying a large cutter suction dredger. The dredged material will be loaded into and removed by sand carriers.

In the Bahamas, three ports will be upgraded on the instructions of the Ministry of National Security as part of the Sandy Bottom Project.

The project is part of a programme involving purchasing vessels and upgrading three ports. The vessels will be delivered by Damen Shipyards Group.

Van Oord is responsible for the design and the execution of the dredging activities and the civil engineering work. The dredging work involves deepening access channels and ports. Van Oord is deploying a backhoe for these activities.

“The execution of both projects has already started”

The civil engineering work involves the constructions of quay walls, breakwaters, buildings, jetties, moorings and facings.

Van Oord will be applying its own Coral Rehabilitation initiative on the Sandy Bottom project. This programme involves distributing coral cultivated in a mobile laboratory, the ReefGuard.

Earlier this year, Van Oord successfully completed a project on the Ningaloo Reef in Australia.

The project in Brazil will be completed in late 2014. The work in the Bahamas will be completed in early 2016.
