Dredger will complete marine work on Nakheels Deira Islands development
- Nakheel awards Van Oord contract to deliver 23.5 kilometres of coastline and breakwaters at Deira Islands
- Work includes 8.5km of beaches, 3.5km of quay walls and 9.5km of rock revetments at two of the four islands
The two-year contract stage one of Nakheels water-edge delivery programme at Deira Islands includes 8.5km of beaches, 3.5km of quay walls and 9.5km of rock revetments at two of the four islands. The work includes a 4km stretch of waterfront, big enough to accommodate more than 500 yachts and boats, at the 4.5 million-square-metre south island. Van Oord will also build 2km of breakwaters to protect the newly-created basin and beachfront.
Van Oord has worked for Nakheel on other projects such as the Palm Jumeirah and The World, which added 300 km to Dubais coastline.
