Dredger Kari Hege on the Job
For week commencing 24th August 2015, the “Kari Hege” will be engaged in dredging operations in the main channel North of number 6 buoy, between buoys 6 & 2, reported today the Wells Harbour.
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” operates from Monday to Friday. Its normal area of work is in the main channel between buoy number 12 and buoy number 1.
It works during the low water period, starting three hours after high water until three hours prior to the next high water. 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.
