How to create artificial islands

The process of establishing artificial islands began with the reclamation of some of the shallow water lands, and this method has been used previously in many different countries to construct resorts or airports, then part of the sea water that is located in front of the coasts is destroyed, and it is also possible to work on the artificial islands by expanding an already existing island Or an extension of a particular beach.
The Palm Company and the workers were keen on the project with it, using materials suitable for the marine environment. For example, the use of beach sand and rocks was used only to create the island of the world. It is worth noting that there must be a barrier to break the sea waves in the artificial islands, and this barrier is made of a solid dam Made of huge rocks that prevent the waves from reaching the coast of the islands, and the filling operations in these islands required a huge amount of sand and rocks, it was used in the formation of the island’s land more than 90 million cubic meters of sand, and the island of the world needed more than thirty million tons M N sand and rocks, and the cost of establishing the island of the world was more than 14 billion dollars, and it is expected that the cost of the Palm Island Jebel Ali will reach more than 20 billion dollars.
