UK: Isle of Wight Dredging Project Under Way
The replenishment works are scheduled to commence east of the Isle of Wight on 28 June.
Two dredgers, Sospan Dau (71m) and Shoreway (98m), will execute the dredging of shingle from licensed dredging areas. The excavated materials will then be discharged onto the beach near the Bunn Leisure Caravan Park.
The dredges will pump the material onto the beach during high water using a 500m floating pipeline.
This project is expected to last for four months.
