Israel: Haifa Port Dredging Kicks Off

Haifa Port Dredging Kicks Off

According to port2port.com, the dredging work at Haifa Port’s entry channel has started.

This project began immediately following authorization received from the Israel’s Ministry for Environmental Protection.

Shlomo Briemann, CEO of the Israel Port Company, said: “The permit was given based on an understanding that combines considerations for protection of the environment and the benefits derived to the economy of Haifa and the Northern part of Israel“.

The aim is to finish deepening the port’s entry channel, through which vessels enter and leave the port’s basin via Haifa Bay, within few months.

The first stage of the work, which will include dredging of sand from the sea bed, is expected to take several weeks. When finished, the depth of the entrance channel will be 16 meters. This will allow port entrance of vessels with a capacity of 8,000 TEU (Standard size of a 20 foot container).
