On Sunday 12 April Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte visited the artificial island constructed by Boskalis off the coast of the Punta Pacifica residential area of Panama City. Following a guided tour of the island the Prime Minister, together with Mike Eman (PM of Aruba), José Isabel Blandon (Mayor of Panama) and Claret Connor (Minister of Tourism of Saint Martin), placed the first stones for a second island to be built by Boskalis.
Nine hectares of land will be created by placing approximately 600,000 cubic meters of rock to form a perimeter and filling this with 1.3 million cubic meters of sand. The project also includes the construction of a bridge to connect the two islands.
