Benoi Basin Dredging Project Moves Forward (Singapore)

Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has informed the shipping, harbour craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that the Benoi Basin dredging project is currently underway.

This deepening work will be carried out by the grab dredgers which will be held by 4-point anchoring system.

The dredging vessels, with hopper barges in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 50 m radius centered at the dredgers. The dredged materials will be transported to the designated dumping ground by the hopper barges.

During the operation, the dredgers will be attended by tug boats, which will be used to shift the dredgers.

A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other crafts of the project. The completion date is scheduled for 12 March, 2014.
