November 28 - BBC Chartering's multipurpose heavy lift vessel BBC Oregon has delivered suction dredging hose components and crawler-type loaders to the island of Hulhumal

Hulhumalé was reclaimed in order to establish a new land mass required to meet the future housing, industrial and commercial development demands of the Maldives' Malé region; and has just begun a second phase of land reclamation, which should accommodate a population of 100,000 in the future.

The equipment transported by the 12,780 dwt vessel BBC Oregon will be put to use for this project, which is expected to cost around USD59 million.
