The Dangote Group, owned by Aliko Dangote, is building Africa’s largest oil refinery and fertilizer plant in Lekki, 60 kilometers east of Lagos, Nigeria. To facilitate the import of out-of-gauge components and other materials required for construction activities, a port was constructed
In October 2017, Boskalis was awarded the contract for the dredging of an access channel, a turning circle and a port basin. In addition, Boskalis carried out work to reclaim an innovative sandbar, constructed the sandbar groin and north groin, as well as lee-side and basin revetments. In anticipation of future erosion of the beach to the east of the port, a geo-tubes sleeping defense system and sand engine were built.
