Lulu Island Development Project is a residential and leisure development, which includes medium to high-rise blocks, shops, high-end marinas, hotels and leisure facilities. The island is located off the Manama Corniche and close to the Pearl roundabout in Bahrain.
MEDCO's assignment was to source at sea for suitable sands, to reclaim the 600 hectare island and to provide it with the necessary shore protection against wave action.
The dredging and reclamation works were carried out by a new shallow draft, state-of-the-art trailer suction hopper dredger. The works started in September 2004 and were completed ahead of schedule in July 2005.
