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 program has officially commenced.
Dredging works will be undertaken by the grab dredgers which will be held by 3 spuds as anchors. These dredging vessels, with hopper barges in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 50 meters.
The dredged material will be transported to the designated dumping ground by the hopper barges assisted by pusher tugs.
The completion of this deepening project is scheduled for October 19, 2014.
