BAM to build second mega pier
WILLEMSTAD - Construction company BAM will design and build a second mega pier in Curacao, at Otrobanda, Willemstad. The job contract value is over 25 million, it was announced on Thursday.
The pier is located on the west side of the St. Anna Bay next to the in 1999 constructed Ernest 'Jackie' Voges mega pier. The pier will accommodate ships of the Oasis-class, the largest type of cruise ships.
The scaffolding will be used for the mooring of cargo vessels, tankers and vessels for the offshore industry.
The work, commissioned by the Curaçao Ports Authority include the construction of a nearly 200-meter mooring scaffolding, a 75-meter run jetty, four mooring and land reclamation of coastal protection. The current pier is being renovated.
