Maldives will build a 200 hectare floating city

Government of Maldives announced the launch of the floating islands project.

One of the main problems of the island state is the lack of land for development. To resolve the issue, the country’s authorities back in 2010 approved a plan to expand the territory through the construction of artificial floating islands. However, its implementation remained uncertain for many years. The situation was corrected by an agreement with Dutch Docklands.

After agreeing on all the conditions, on March 14, Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasheed announced the official launch of a new project for the construction of a floating city near the capital of the Maldives.

Dutch Docklands’ plan calls for the phased establishment of a 200-hectare floating city in the lagoon next to Male. Construction will begin in 2022 and will last 10 years. Upon completion of all works, the city will have a residential area, hotels, shops and restaurants.

As a reminder, the Danish Energy Agency recently announced a plan to build the world’s first island-power hub. with a capacity of 10 GW for $ 34 billion.
