Singapore: Dredging at East Keppel Fairway Begins Soon
Maritime and port authority of Singapore gave notice that dredging works at East Keppel Fairway will be carried out by a Dredger “Kyoei No 18” held in position by spuds as anchors.
The works will be performed by 26 Jul 2010 to 25 Jan 2011. The dredger, with hopper barges in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 50-metre radius centred at the dredger.
Dredged materials will be transported to the designated dumping ground by the hopper barges assisted by pusher tugs.
The tug boats will be used to shift the dredger, when required to clear the fairway for vessels.
Safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity to warn the other craft of the project work off the working area.
