Hong Kong Marine Works Start
With immediate effect and for a period of approximately 12 months, marine works involving dredging, reclamation, piling and construction of seawall will be carried out in the areas west of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.
These works will be undertaken by a flotilla of vessels including two grab dredgers, two split hopper barges, four derrick barges, three jack-up barges, one crane barge and two flat top barges.
Some tugs and guard boats will provide assistance and the number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.
A working area of approximately 50 meters around the grab dredger and each barge will be established.
Several silt curtains, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, will be established within the working area.
