Abu Dhabi Land, the contracting company, announced the completion of the dredging, reclamation and rock revetment works at Dolphin Island and coastal protection for the Marina Square at Reem Island Sector 1.

Tamouh Investments awarded the projects to Abu Dhabi Land in 2008 and the company was responsible for the end-to-end design, technical submittals, procurement, delivery and commissioning of all works within both projects. The island project required the engineers to shape the island by constructing rock bunds and rock revetment walls to obtain the desired dolphin shape. The surrounding areas were dredged to form accessible channels to pump the fill materials to reclaim the Island to the required limits and levels.

Additionally, earth works were carried out to obtain the required levels and contour for islands. "We are pleased with the timely completion of these landmark projects and congratulate everyone involved on this mammoth achievement," said Syed Basar Shueb, CEO at Abu Dhabi Land.

The coastal protection works for the Marina Square comprised a 1,700lm of sea wall for shore protection with decorative panels and rock groins' for safeguarding of its 270lm beach.

The scope of work also included the development of the circular small craft marina about 180m in diameter with 22 berths, including pontoons, guide piles, gangways along with a water taxi courtyard.
