VIDEO: TSHD Sospan Dau at Chichester

The 73 m-long trailing suction hopper dredger “Sospan Dau” has been involved in the Chichester Bar dredging operations since November 28th. 

The vessel worked day and night during the period, sucking up gravel from the sea bed and placing the dredged material onto the seafront at Hayling Island.

Layers of sand and gravel sucked from the area by the “Sospan Dau” were delivered to the beach over high tide.

The dredger used a technique known as ‘rainbowing’ to discharges a mixture of sediment and water and create a mound of material high on the foreshore.

Discharge process takes about one hour after which the vessel returns to the dredge area for the next load.


The Chichester Bar dredging project should be completed by the end of the day.
