Situated on Hulhule Island in the archipelago of Maldives at the South Western tip of India, Male International Airport is the largest airport in Maldives, located near the capital city, Male. Gulf Cobla has been appointed by the Indian based GMR group to undertake extensive dredging and reclamation works for the expansion of Malé International Airport (later renamed as Ibrahim Nasir International Airport).

Sea plane runways are to be dredged, land is to be reclaimed and the main runway area is to being expanded. Cutter Suction Dredger "Deira Bay" is appointed to dredge the two Million m3 required for this project.
