Van Oord is the company that won the tender for construction of Anaklia Deep Sea Port announced by Anaklia Development Consortium (ADC). Van Oord was selected based on its technical and commercial offer. Within a month, Georgia and Anaklia will receive one of the most advanced and technically capable dredging vessels ever built.
Van Oord will perform the reclamation of 5.0 million cubic meters of sand from the sea and placement of the dredged material in the port area which encompasses 70 hectares.
“This is a historical moment, since Georgia has never witnessed marine works of this kind, taking into consideration the scale and engineering solutions of the reclamation activities to be carried out. We are delighted to announce that an internationally renowned company such as Van Oord will be conducting this important part of marine construction,” said Ronny Solberg, CEO of Anaklia Construction Management.
Anaklia Deep Sea Port is planned to go into commercial operation in December 2020.
