Offshore award on Yamal peninsula

Van Oord has been awarded a dredging and trenching project on the Yamal Peninsula in Northern Russia. Van Oord will execute the Baydaratskaya Bay Crossing Project as a contractor for the Russian company MRTS. The final client is Yamalgazinvest, a subsidiary of Gazprom.

Van Oord will execute the project with the trailing suction hopper dredger Utrecht during the ice-free window in 2008. The total contract value is approximately EUR 20 million.

Gazprom is developing the Yamal area with the final aim to transport gas to its local network and Western Europe. The works entail the dredging and pumping ashore of sand for a reclamation area and dredging and backfilling works for a pipeline trench.
