More Dredging at Jurong Terminal
Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has informed the shipping, harbor craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that the working period for upgrading works at Jurong Terminal Berth J10 and J11 has been extended.
According to MPA’s Port Marine Notice, these operations will be carried out 24 hours daily – including Sundays and Public Holidays – from 23 May to 23 November, 2015.
Dredging work will be carried out by the grab dredgers Tarvos and Bestla which will be held by four anchors. The dredged material will be loaded onto the hopper barges and transported to designated dumping ground by pusher tugboats.
The grab dredgers with hopper barges in attendance will have a circular safety working zone of 50 meters.
A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other crafts of the project.
