Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has informed the shipping, harbour craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that the Temasek Fairway dredging works, located at Jurong Island, are currently underway.
Dredging works will be undertaken by the grab dredgers which will be held by 3 spuds as anchors.
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.
The completion of this deepening program is scheduled for August 12, 2014.
