VIDEO: Boskalis’ Dredger at Port of Felixstowe (UK)

Work has recently started at the Port of Felixstowe on the latest expansion of the UK’s largest container port.

VSBW Joint Venture, a consortium of VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, has been appointed as the lead contactor to extend the port’s Berth 9 by 190 metres. The work will increase the combined lengths of Berths 8 and 9 to 920 metres, giving the port even greater flexibility to berth the world’s largest container ships.

The project will involve dredging 1 million cubic metres of material to provide the berth and approaches, and enable a new steel-piled quay wall to be built.
