Lindø port of Odense in Denmark has signed an agreement with Belgium-based Jan de Nul and Züblin to undertake major land reclamation and wharf construction work to extend the facility.
Under the contract, the joint venture will construct a 400,000m2 industrial area and a 1km length of new quay to meet demand for from the bulk goods, maritime and offshore industries.
The DKK350M (£41.5M) project includes construction of a special heavy-load area, 30m wide and 100m long, for the operational of very large mobile and crawler cranes.
Züblin technical director for business unit ground and civil engineering Thomas Bentsen said: “The extension of Lindø port of Odense is a complex project which brings forward our competences within ground and civil engineering. Together with Jan de Nul’s competences in dredging and land reclamation, we have established a strong team with international expertise and local knowledge of the Danish market. In addition to our joint competences, Züblin and Jan de Nul also own the massive machinery that enables us to solve the job.”
The extension of the North Terminal at the port is expected to be fully operational by 2020.
