Vinci wins £110M Jamaica port expansion

Vinci jamaica

Vinci and Belgian dredging company Jan de Nul have won the £110M contract to extend the Port of Kingston in Jamaica.

The joint venture includes both Vinci Construction subsidiaries Vinci Construction Grands Projets and EMCC. The contract was awarded by the new operators of the port, shipping group CMA CGM.

The 25-month project covers the refurbishment, reinforcement and upgrade to seismic standards of 1,200m of quays as well as dredging work in the access channel. The depth of the quays will also be increased so that they can handle larger container ships and enable the port to be used as a container terminal for the large vessels using the newly-expanded Panama Canal.

Vinci has been working in Jamaica for three decades, including constructing several sewer and water treatment structures.
