International offshore and dredging contractor Van Oord has been awarded the contract for Dubai Harbour marine works, a prestigious-mega project in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The project, which Van Oord has been awarded by Projects Link Contracting Co LLC, is the next step in achieving ‘Dubai Tourism Vision 2020’, Dubai’s strategy to attract 20 mn visitors per year by 2020.

Van Oord has contributed to the development of the emirate since 2001 by building amongst others Palm Jumeirah, The World and many other artificial islands.
