One of our largest hoppers ‘Bonny River’ is performing dredging and reclamation works for the extension of the Western Container Terminal (WCT) in Colombo.
The first sand was pumped ashore for the new facility. Upon completion, the project will boost Colombo Port’s container handling capacity substantially and further consolidate Sri Lanka’s strategic advantage of being located along one of the world’s busiest global transshipment routes. The terminal will have a quay length of 1,400 m and a depth of 20 m, making it suitable for ultra-large container carriers.
DEME is active in the South Asia region with several ongoing maintenance and capital dredging projects underway.
