Boskalis Westminster Wins QEC Contract


Boskalis Westminster has been awarded a contract from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation on behalf of the Ministry of Defence for the capital dredging of the approach channel to the port of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom. The contract has a value of approximately £30 million and the activities are due to commence in the second half of 2015.

The dredging activities are related to the deepening and widening of the 4-5 mile long approach channel. A total volume of approximately three million cubic metres of hard clay, sand and gravel will be removed over an eight month period.

For this project, medium-sized trailing suction hopper dredgers and backhoe dredgers will be deployed. Customised working methods and continuous monitoring will be applied in order to meet the stringent environmental requirements.
