International Dredging Review

Australia-based dredging civil contracting and marine civil company Hall Contracting celebrated its expansion within the international market opening a new office in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

Hall Contracting Managing Director Cameron Hall said as the first Hall Contracting branch to open outside of Australian borders since the company’s Fiji office some years ago the new office opening in Kuala Lumpur was an important milestone for the 68-year-old business.

“We attract work in a number of locations across Asia so Kuala Lumpur struck us as the perfect location to open a new office; it acts as a great base for flying in and out of various countries across the Asia Pacific and allows us to work closely with clients in these areas and develop new business leads” Hall said.

Hall said the most recent editions to the company’s fleet included two cutter suction dredges – 10000hp Eastern Aurora and 4500hp Amity.

In recent years Hall Contracting carried out the deepening and extension of the Port Denarau Marina shipping channel (Fiji’s busiest tourist harbor) dredged 250000 cubic meters of hard clay for a new port facility in Port Moresby removed mud and silts from ponds on the site of the future Bountiful City Light & Power facility in Thailand and worked on a major port expansion project in the Pilbara region of Australia dredging into split hopper barges for sea disposal.
