Orders for Van Oord in Brazil, the Bahamas

Van Oord secured two orders in Brazil and the Bahamas. 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.
 
In the Bahamas, three ports will be upgraded on the instructions of the Ministry of National Security as part of the Sandy Bottom Project. Both orders have a joint contract value of more than EUR 100M. The execution of both projects has already started. The project in Brazil will be completed in late 2014. The work in the Bahamas will be completed in early 2016.
 

The work at the Jurong Aracruz shipyard in the state of Espírito Santo involves the construction of an access channel, turning basin and moorings at the quays. The Sandy Bottom project involves 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. 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.
