VSBW (joint venture comprising VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster) were proud to be involved in the Port of Dover's flagship Dover Western Docks Revival development, delivering the marine structures and bridge contract.

This scope included the design and build of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation, a new marina pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, Bascule Bridge and capital dredging work. 

Approximately one million cubic metres of silt, gravel and chalk were removed from the harbour and required two million cubic metres of sand for use as infill material for land reclamation.

The works included 1,175,000m³ of capital dredging, 1,050,000m³ of reclamation, 51,000 tons of rock revetment and 135,000m³ of temporary stabilisation bunds.
