New construction equipment for Hulhumalé, Maledives

November 2014 - Hulhumalé is an artificial island located in the south of North Male Atoll, Maldives. It was reclaimed to establish a new land mass required to meet the future housing, industrial and commercial development demands of the Malé region.

Hulhumalé, which was initially developed for a population of 60,000, just commenced a second phase of land reclamation starting this July 2014. Currently home to about 30,000, the new reclamation enables the accommodation of a population of 100,000 in the future. The government estimates this second phase to cost about US $59 million and looks at reclaiming 240 hectares of land.

BBC Chartering delivered crucial suction dredging hose components and crawler-type loaders for this important project with the BBC Oregon. The 12,780dwt MPP / HL vessel had sufficient intake and features two own cranes which delivered impeccable lifting services unloading the equipment. BBC Chartering currently operates 32 vessels of this type which is available with 240, 300 and 360mt lifting capacity.
