Dredging for a new berth to a depth of -11.0m CD. The dredge area contained a proportion of contaminated material.
The first phase of the works required the dredging of a reception pit, within the site footprint, to -15.0 CD for the disposal of the contaminated material. The backhoe Manu Pekka and split hopper barges Cork Sand and Long Sand were deployed from the Boskalis fleet. Uncontaminated material was transported to the licensed offshore disposal site at Burford Bank in Dublin Bay. Additional vessels were the Dublin Port tug Poolbeg and survey vessel Depthfinder.
