VIDEO: Dredger “Charles Darwin” to Undertake Brisbane NPR Project

One of the newest ships in the Jan de Nul fleet, the trailer suction hopper dredger “Charles Darwin”, will arrive in Queensland in mid-2014 to start dredging clean marine sand from Moreton Bay, for Brisbane’s New Parallel Runway (NPR).

About 13 million cubic metres of clean marine sand is required to provide the superior quality and consistent material needed to create a solid base for the new runway.

Dredging in Moreton Bay is confined to a long, narrow linear footprint with gentle sloping batters adjacent the main shipping channel.
