Van Oord recently completed the expansion of the port of Kaohsiung. The client, Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC), awarded the contract in 2015. The work was completed eight months ahead of schedule. In less than two years’ time, trailing suction hopper dredgers Vox Máxima, Volvox Terranova, and Rotterdam created 250 hectares of new land for the Kaohsiung Intercontinental Container Center Phase II. The new land will accommodate many terminals and wharves, some of which will be able to handle container vessels of up to 22,000 TEU.
