The contract's letter of intent includes the engineering, design, procurement and construction of a bulk liquid berth terminal to be constructed at the port.

In addition, Boskalis will be involved in the deepening of the port basin to a depth of 18m, reclamation of new land and construction of a 1km long quay wall, as well as a double berth jetty island and stone revetment.

A new mega cutter Helios, as well as a jumbo hopper and medium-sized trailer suction hopper dredger, will be employed to carry out the proposed dredging activities.
