UK: HHA Invites Bids for Harwich Dredging
Harwich Haven Authority has invited bidders to submit their offers for the ports of Harwich and Felixstowe dredging contract.
This contract is for the provision of a suitable backhoe dredger to excavate approximately 112 trial pits for others to take samples and analyse.
The trial pits lie within the current navigation channel and harbour areas of the ports of Harwich and Felixstowe.
Trial pits will be approximately 500 m apart and a maximum of 2 m deep.
Excavated material will be replaced on the bed and levelled by the dredger.
The contract includes the provision of any work boat required and a suitable tug to position the dredger which will be required to excavate to a level of -16,5 m CD.
The officials predict that this cleanup program will probably last up to 10 consecutive days.
The deadline for this tender is June 27, 2013, and the value of the dredging project is between £300,000 and £450,000.
