Works underway on Jakarta Bay expansion

The Van Oord-Boskalis joint venture has started dredging work for the creation of Pluit City, an artificial island in the bay of Jakarta, Indonesia.

The growth of Jakarta’s population by 800,000 people per year has resulted in ambitious plans for the further development of Jakarta Bay.

Trailing suction hopper dredgers are now dredging the sand that will be used to create the new island.

The contract includes the installation of stone revetment protection and soil improvement work, as well as the dredging services.

Over the last few days, a delegation from Jakarta has been visiting Rotterdam. During the visit, the party has taken the opportunity to learn about the development of the city of Rotterdam.

The experience gained from unique land reclamation projects, such as Maasvlakte 2, will also contribute to Jakarta’s city planning.

The Pluit City project will be delivered in 2018.
