Van Oord Completes Koper Dredging

The Netherlands-based company Van Oord has completed the first phase of deepening operations at the Port of Koper increasing water depth of the port’s Container Terminal to 14 m.

During the dredging, Van Oord removed approx. 230,000 m3 of sea sediments (silt), allowing larger vessels, with a draft of up to 13.5, to enter the port’s Northern part of Basin I.

In addition, a new stacking area of 6.480 m² close to the berthing place for containers vessels also became operational, providing some 600 TEUs of additional storage space.

The mentioned projects are part of the Pier I extension project, which also includes seabed dredging in Basin I to 15 m and construction of an additional 100 m of quayside together with all the equipment. The project, with the estimated value of 78 million euros, will be executed in stages by 2018.

Through the total investment in the extension of Pier I the annual cargo throughput capacity of the Container Terminal will increase from the current 750,000 to 980,000 TEUs annually.

The dredging works were co-financed within the EU project NAPADRAG (TEN-T program).
