Kuala Linggi International Port (KLIP) and China’s CCCC Dredging have signed an RM800 million (US$174 million) dredging and land reclamation contract to create a new island in the Strait of Malacca for the development of the Kuala Linggi International Port in Malaysia.

CCC Dredging Southeast Asia, a subsidiary of China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), has been tasked with reclaiming 620 acres of land for the construction of the Kuala Linggi International Port. The project is scheduled to commence by the end of 2023 and is estimated to be completed within a 2-year timeframe.

The Linggi Base project will entail the reclamation of 250 ha of land. It will be linked to the mainland through a 700-m bridge designed to accommodate ships with a draft of up to 22 m at the outer berth. The port will feature comprehensive cargo handling, storage, and transshipment facilities, while the water depth within its limits varies between 25 and 55 m.
