LNG Import Terminal Phase 2 Project

  19/07/2010
Royal Boskalis Westminster has been awarded the second phase of the construction of the LNG import terminal of Cuyutlán on the west coast of Mexico. The total contract value is approximately EUR90 million with Boskalis' share amounting approximately EUR45 million. The contract was awarded by Secretaría de Comunicaciones Y Transportes (Ministry of Communications and Transport). Work is set to commence mid-2010 and is expected to be completed mid 2011.



Boskalis was awarded the first phase of the Cuyutlán project last year. This second and final phase of the dredging work requires further dredging in the lagoon. The work scope includes the deepening of the basin, construction of an access channel and creating a turning basin. A total of approximately 13 million cubic meters of sand and clay will be dredged and the project will be executed with a medium and large sized hopper and three cutter suction dredgers. Boskalis has a strong home market position in Mexico and the majority of Boskalis' work will be executed by own local employees.


The Boskalis strategy is designed to benefit from the key macro-economic drivers that are fueling global demand in our selected markets: global trade, increasing energy consumption, expanding population pressures and the challenges of changing climate conditions. This port expansion project is driven by a need to cater for larger vessels and future trade volumes. This LNG project reinforces the requirement for infrastructure to accommodate the strong demand for energy resources.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
