Pemex has awarded the €235m contract for the work to a consortium of Van Oord and Grupo Huerta Madre.

Some12 million cubic metres of sand is set to be reclained to create the new land. The 10-month project also includes 400ha of dynamic compaction and the movement of six million cubic metres of dry earth.
