Rotterdam Kicks Off Yukonhaven Dredging

The Port of Rotterdam Authority has started dredging the Yukonhaven on Maasvlakte 2.

The dredging work will prepare the port for Gate terminal’s new LNG breakbulk infrastructure.

Gate (shareholders Gasunie and Koninklijke Vopak) and the Port of Rotterdam Authority are building a new port basin together that will be suitable for LNG breakbulk services. The new breakbulk infrastructure will be constructed next to Gate terminal.

In the coming period, the Port of Rotterdam Authority will be dredging around 500,000 m³ of sand. The sand will be put to a new use on Maasvlakte 2. The dredging operations are the ‘closing piece’ for the Port Authority, which is responsible for the construction of a basin and quay infrastructure.

The Port Authority expects to complete the work at the end of this year, after which Gate will start on the construction of the installations. The first LNG ship is expected in the summer of 2016.
