Belgium’s Jan De Nul has picked up a US $222 million (AED815 million) bulk earth-filling contract for Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island project. Work will begin in January on filling some 35 million m3 of earth, which will be used to provide sculpted landform, enhancing vistas for Saadiyat Island’s Marina and Cultural Districts – two of six districts in the planned residential and tourism destination development. The work is scheduled to be completed in December 2008. Enabling works are continuing on the project, a 27 million m2 offshore island lying 500m off the coast of Abu Dhabi, to clear the ground for infrastructure development. The work, being carried out by the Al Jaber Group, is expected to be completed by the end of January.
