GLDD: Successful Completion of Suez Contract

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation said that it will participate in the events planned to celebrate the recent completion of the New Suez Canal Project in Egypt, which will allow two way traffic by creating a parallel channel alongside 70 kilometers of the existing Canal. 

Great Lakes, along with its Consortium partner Dredging International NV, was responsible for dredging approximately 40 million cubic meters to -24m depth along a 29.5 kilometer stretch of the Canal for a contract value of US$600 million.

The Company rapidly mobilized its Middle East-based heavy duty, high production cutter suction dredges, the ‘Carolina’ and the ‘Ohio,’ as well as their  auxiliary support equipment and the trailing suction hopper dredge Sugar Island, to execute its portion of the work.

Originally scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2015, the project was accelerated to be completed well ahead of schedule in anticipation of the New Canal inauguration ceremony.

David Simonelli, President – Dredging Division, said: “The New Suez Canal project was an incredible achievement not only for Great Lakes and our partner, Dredging International, but for the global dredging community that worked on this major undertaking. Great Lakes was pleased to work again with Dredging International on the world stage executing this monumental project that will foster economic growth in the region and improve global trade.”
