ADNOC - ZADCO artificial islands development (UAE)
The ACCROPODE™ II technique has been selected for protecting the most exposed parts of the Upper Zakum and Satah al-Razboot (SARB) artificial islands located offshore Abu Dhabi. Contractors (NMDC and DEME-MEDCO for Zakum and SARB schemes respectively) are finalizing physical model tests in Europe. The full production of the ACCROPODE™ II armour units is due to start very shortly for both projects, using the first molds delivered to the casting yards located in Ajman and RAK, East of the UAE. Placement on the islands is scheduled to proceed within the next months.
