Van Oord awarded $400m land reclamation project in Angola11 January 2017 | By GCR Staff 0 Comments
A consortium of Dutch contractor Van Oord and planning and management consultancy Urbinveste has been awarded the contract for the design and construction of the Marginal da Corimba project in Luanda, Angola.
The project aims to revitalise the area of Samba, Corimba and Futungo de Belas. It will contribute to improving the accessibility of the city of Luanda as well as to help to solve the city’s urbanisation challenges in a sustainable manner.
An area of 400ha will be reclaimed along the coast of Luanda and will be protected by rock revetments and breakwaters.
The new area will allow the construction of the Marginal da Corimba highway, a fishery port, a marina and real estate development.
Van Oord will complete the project in mid-2019.
