The US$29m (£20m) contract is part of a US$43m scheme being developed by the Curaçao Ports Authority.
BAM’s scope of work for the Mega Cruise Pier II at Otrabanda, Willemstad, comprises the marine facilities, consisting of the almost 200m-long jetty, a 75m-long approach trestle, four mooring dolphins and land reclamation protected by shore revetment as well as improvements to the existing Mega Cruise Pier I. Sister company BAM Infraconsult is involved in the design of the new pier.
Pier II will be suitable for Oasis-class cruise vessels, currently the largest type of passenger ships. In addition, the jetty will be used for berthing general cargo vessels, tankers and offshore service vessels.
BAM International expects to start design works immediately with work on site beginning in the second half of this year for completion in October 2017.
