Wells Harbor Provides Update on Dredging
For week commencing 13th April 2015, the “Kari Hege” will be engaged in dredging operations in the Wells Harbor main channel in the area of number 4 buoy.
All pre-arranged dredging areas are constrained by the weather and wave heights therefore operations are subject to change on a daily basis.
The Port’s dredger “Kari Hege” will operate from Monday to Friday. Its normal area of work is in the main channel between buoy number 12 and buoy number 1.
Dredging works will be carried out during the low water period, starting three hours after high water until three hours prior to the next high water. The “Kari Hege” will manoeuvre into its dig position, or back to its mooring, approximately half an hour before or after this time.
All material removed from the channel during dredging operation is placed on the berm which is marked by the Port hand channel buoys. Areas to be dredged are dictated by regular survey results but these areas are subject to weather constraints.
