USA: Great Lakes Bags Delaware River Deepening Contracts

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (“Great Lakes”), the largest provider of dredging services in the United States and a major provider of environmental and remediation services, announced the receipt of two dredging contracts with a combined value of $39.6 million to deepen the main channel of the Delaware River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Great Lakes will use a combination of hopper and clamshell vessels to dredge over one million cubic yards to deepen a section of the river from 40 feet to 45 feet.

Great Lakes deepened a different section of the Delaware River two years ago and is looking forward to continuing its efforts to deepen the river’s navigation channel.

Dredging is expected to begin this summer.
