India: DCI to Commission New Dredger
The second of its three 5,500 cubic meter trailer suction hopper dredgers will be commissioned today by the Dredging Corporation of India (DCI), reports indiatimes.com.
According to DCI chairman-cum-managing director D K Mohanty, after the commissioning ceremony at Chennai Port this vessel will be sent to undertake a dredging program at Ennore Port.
DCI already has one dredger working at Ennore Port, and with the arrival of another, this dredging project is expected to be completed by October.
The new dredger will be an alternative for one recently decommissioned dredger V.
P. V. Ramana Murthy, director, finance, DCI, recently stated that the new dredgers would help the company increase productivity, thereby improving the margins.
