Van Oord awarded breakwater construction contract at Aberdeen South Harbour

The Aberdeen Harbour Board of Aberdeen Harbour in Scotland has awarded Dutch marine projects company Van Oord a contract for the construction of the harbour’s south breakwater.

Van Oord said that the over 500-metres-long breakwater will protect the new port facilities from a one-in-300-year storm.

The backhoe dredger Razende Bol, the side-stone dumping vessel HAM 602, and the split hopper barge Johannis de Rijke are part of the equipment to be deployed. Work at the site will commence within the coming weeks.

Van Oord has been involved in the Aberdeen Harbour expansion project since 2017 and most recently delivered critical rock dredging and revetment construction works.
