Pelican Moves to Entrance Bar

Just a few days from now, trailing suction hopper dredge Pelican will begin maintenance dredging of the Lakes Entrance Bar in Victoria, Australia.

According to the Gippsland Ports announcement, the Pelican will be carrying out dredging operations on the Lakes Entrance Bar for a period of approximately six weeks starting Friday 6th November 2015.

During the works, the Pelican will remove approximately 150 – 200,000m³ of clean oceanic sand predominantly from the Entrance Bar. There will also be some minor maintenance dredging of the inner channels.

Lakes Entrance is home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in Victoria and is increasingly used by local and visiting recreational vessels.

Dredging at the entrance to the Gippsland Lakes has occurred for over a 120 years and has been essential for maintaining access between the Gippsland Lakes and Bass Strait since the permanent entrance was constructed in 1889.
