Picture of the Day: Van Oord’s Borr in Koper

Van Oord has won the next phase of the Koper Port dredging project under which Basin I and the port’s access channel will be deepen to 15 meters by the end of summer.

The company has already deployed its dredger “Borr” to the site, starting technically challenging operation under the supporting structure of the quayside, i.e. among the piles.

According to the Luka Koper, the quayside works should be completed by the end of the month after which Van Oord will send the hopper dredger Dravo Costa Dorada to finish the project.

During the works approximately 66,000 m³ of sediments will be dredged from the area and pumped to a dedicated disposal site in the port’s hinterland.

Last year, the Dravo Costa Dorada successfully completed deepening of the port’s Basin I to 14 meters and removed some 230,000 m³ of silt.
