Quaywall contract for BAM International in Cameroon
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 14 January 2013 – BAM International - the operating construction company of Royal BAM Group that is active outside Europe - has been awarded a contract for the design and construction of a quay wall for Limbe Shipyard, approximately 80 kilometres north of Douala, Cameroon’s main commercial city. The value of the contract amounts to €29 million. BAM expects to hand over the quay wall to Cameroon Shipyard and Industrial Engineering Ltd in May 2014.
The project comprises the construction of a 320-metre long quay wall, using 55-tons rectangular concrete blocks on an underwater concrete foundation. The water depth is twelve to eighteen metres.
In 2007 BAM International completed the design and construction of the 700-metre long breakwater to shelter the Limbe Shipyard from the Atlantic Ocean waves.
