Another Capital Project for GLDD

Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD) from Oak Brook, Illinois, has won a $76.8 million firm-fixed-price contract for dredging, rock removal and deepening of the Delaware River main channel.

This capital cleanup project will be performed in Chester, Pennsylvania; Pedricktown, New Jersey; and Claymont, Delaware, with an estimated completion date of December 31, 2017.

The deeper channel will provide for more efficient transportation of containerized, dry bulk (steel and slag) and liquid bulk (crude oil and petroleum products) cargo to and from the Delaware River ports.

Bids for this project were solicited via the Internet with three received, according to the U.S. Department of Defense.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, is the contracting activity.
