Singapore: Dredging on East Keppel Fairway to Start Soon

Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore informs the shipping, harbour craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that dredging works at East Keppel Fairway begin soon.

Dredging works will be carried out by a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger (TSHD).

While dredging, Queen of Penta Ocean will maintain a speed of about 2 knots. The TSHD will only dredge in one sector at a time.

When moving from the dredging area to the dumping ground, she will proceed at a safe speed of not more than 12 knots depending on the traffic conditions and visibility.
