Dredging at Pioneer Shipyard Begins This Month
Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has informed shipping, harbor craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that dredging work at Pioneer Shipyard, off West Jurong Channel, will be undertaken from 16 March to 15 July 2015.
Dredging work will be carried out by a grab dredger held in position with anchors.
The dredger, with the hopper barges in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone with a 50-meter radius. Dredged materials will be transported to the designated dumping ground by the hopper barges assisted by pusher tugs.
A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other crafts of the project.
