Singapore: Benoi Basin Dredging Project Starts
Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) informs the shipping, harbour craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that the Benoi basin dredging project will start tomorrow.
Dredging works will be carried out by the crane barge. The crane barge will be held by spuds. Dredged materials will be transported to the designated dumping ground by the hopper barges.
During the operation, the crane barge will be attended by a tug boat. The tug boat will be used to shift the dredger. A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other craft of the project.
