Van Oord Starts Land Reclamation for Estonian Quay Construction

Van Oord has started reclamation works for a new quay in Paldiski South Harbour in Estonia. The new quay is meant to accelerate the development of offshore wind energy in Estonia and the Baltic States.

Paldiski South Harbour is Port of Tallinn’s second cargo harbour, located 45 km west of Tallinn.

Van Oord’s trailing suction hopper dredger Vox Amalia has arrived to supply approximately 830,000m³ of sand to create 10 hectares of land for the new quay. The sand is dredged from a borrow area on the northern coast of Hiiumaa, about 125km from the port.

The new quay is scheduled to be completed in 2025.
