Secora Nabs Hovden Dredging Contract

Secora AS, a Svolvær based dredging contractor, has won the Hovden Harbor dredging project, worth approximately EUR 778,000.

The harbor in Hovden is well shielded and it is a short distance to travel to fishing grounds. The fishery company Hovden Fiskeindustri AS is an active company that provides services related to the reception of fish in Hovden.

The existing conditions in the harbor prevent the company from receiving fish from the total fish supply from larger coastal vessels.

The reason for this is that the seaward approach lacks sufficient depth and must be deepened down to -5m. This will enable larger vessels of approximately 40m to call at Hovden.

This dredging program will result in a manoeuvre area of approximately 90m in the harbor.

At present, the seaward approach at the Hovden Harbor has a minimum depth of 3.2m. The remaining harbor basin has an adequate depth.
