The New Suez Canal project was a titanic effort in logistics. Six global dredging contractors completed the works within one year and several records were broken during the execution of the project. The contractors disposed of more than 245 million m³ of sand in just nine months.
The risks of mooring operations in the dredging industry cannot be overstated. Equipment, training and competence of personnel, and technology are the different factors that play a part in safe and efficient mooring work.
