Machiavelli Ready for Action

As part of a future Corio Bay Channels Upgrade Project, investigative works in the vicinity of No 1 and No 2 Beacons in the Wilson Spit Channel will be conducted between October 28 and November 9, 2015.

These works will be undertaken by the Heron Construction’s backhoe dredger Machiavelli, the Victorian Regional Channels Authority said.

The Machiavelli, with barges and accompanying tugs PT Mary and PT May, will be working in and around the southern edge of the channel and will at all times endeavor to keep the channel clear for ships in transit.

Occasionally, the ongoing works may extend temporarily into the channel (approximately 40 meters from the toe line).

The works will be conducted on a 24 hour basis and the Machiavelli and accompanying crafts will display appropriate signals as required by the International Collision Regulations.
