Gippsland Ports to Hire TSHD

Gippsland Ports, designated waterway manager of 1,431 sq km of some of the largest and most beautiful waterways in Australia, is seeking offers for the supply of a suitable Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger (TSHD).

The supply (new/existing) is for service (time charter), or lease (bareboat charter) arrangements for a period of up to 20 years, which is to be used for a long term ocean access maintenance dredging programme, the Gippsland Lake Ocean Access.

The GLOA Programme, located in the Bass Strait at Lakes Entrance, Victoria, seeks to maintain a navigable entrance to the Port of Gippsland Lakes.

GLOA is being implemented by Gippsland Ports and comprises a number of distinct elements including:

  • Dredging with a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredge (TSHD).
  • Disposal of dredge material at Dredge Material Grounds (DMG).
  • Dredging with a Cutter Suction Dredge (CSD).
  • Sand Transfer System (STS) and dredge material disposal points associated with the CSD dredging.

Annual GLOA maintenance dredging of the Entrance Bar and channels immediately inside the Entrance was completed in 2011, 2012 and 2013 using TSHD Pelican, operated under contract by Van Oord.
