The project consists of reclamation of new land which will be used for residential and commercial developments in Songdo, Incheon. This will be achieved through the hydraulic fill of around 23 million cubic meters of sand. The sand will be sourced from the navigation channels approaching the existing and new Ports of Incheon. A jumbo trailing suction hopper dredger will shortly be deployed to South Korea to undertake the works, which are scheduled to be completed by late 2014.
