A joint venture of dredging companies Boskalis and Van Oord has been awarded a contract by property developer PT Muara Wisesa Samudra to design and construct the artificial island for Pluit City off the coast of Jakarta, Indonesia.

The project involves reclaiming approximately 160 hectares of new land requiring in excess of 20 million cubic meters of dredged sand. Two jumbo trailing suction hopper dredgers will be deployed for the dredging and reclamation activities sourcing sand from local borrow areas. Soil improvement and rock revetment works also form part of the project.  

The new island will be used for both residential and commercial purposes.
