SINGAPORE: DIAP JV AWARDED CONTRACT FOR JURONG ISLAND WESTWARD EXTENSION

*** For my own reference only

Dredging International Asia Pacific Pte Ltd (DIAP, DEME’s subsidiary for the South East Asia region) in a joint venture with Starhigh Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, has been awarded a design and build contract for 148 hectares of land reclamation as an extension to Jurong Island for the account of Singapore government’s largest industrial landlord JTC (Jurong Town Corporation).
The work under the contract comprise sand bund construction with shore protection, dredging for deepening of shoreline, basin and channel realignment, soil improvement works, sand supply, re-use of marine dredged and land-based excavated material and construction of roads, drains and sewers and preparation of a site for vacuum consolidation research.
The S$1.02 billion contract will be developed in three reclamation phases, a part being executed by DIAP.
A part of the Temasek Fairway and West Jurong Channel will be realigned and deepened to specified levels.
DIAP will deploy spud grab dredgers and its own self-propelled trailing suction hopper dredger for the work, which will commence by mid-December and will be finished by end 2017 for Phases 1 and 2. Works for Phase 3 are to be completed by mid-August 2018.
