Navigation Channel in East Port-Said Port
Dredging & Slope Protection

Owner: Port-Said Port Authority.

Main Contractors: Boskalis, Hyundai, Ballast Nedam, and Jan De Nul.

Project Overview:

A consortium of European and Korean dredging contractors joined forces to complete the dredging project. Construction of a new port at Port-Said in Egypt, where the Suez Canal meets the Mediterranean.

Our Scope of Works:

​Interestingly, all of the works have been carried out under the terms of a so-called ‘Design and Construct contract, one of the first such contracts let in the region. In the Design and Construct contract - which was pioneered in the offshore industry - contractors are made responsible not just for executing the work but for designing it too and get involved at a much earlier stage than would normally be the case with a conventional contract. This is said to allow them to introduce innovative solutions and technology or engineering.

We were subcontracted to complete all earthworks, construction of the sedimentation basin embankments, road works, and shore protection. Including placement of the geotextiles of rocks and pitching works.

Project Duration: Apr. 1999 - Feb. 2001.
