Minister Tours Dunmore East Dredging

During his visit to the South East, the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney TD, took the opportunity to inspect progress on the €6 million dredging works at Dunmore East Fishery Harbor Center.

The works, which involve removing approx 27,000 meters cubed of material located in the harbor basin and in the approach channel to the port, started in June and are substantially completed.

The Minister said: “I am delighted to hear that the dredging project in Dunmore East is progressing according to plan and within budget. When completed it will transform the harbor for all our users and play an important part in increasing economic activity and creating much needed jobs here in the South East.”

The material in the harbor basin which was heavily contaminated has now been successfully dredged, treated and removed from the harbor, and work is set to start on removing approximately 6000 meters cubed of material from the entrance channel which is not contaminated.

It is expected that the works will be fully completed by the end of November.
