Major Boost for Port of Maputo Dredging Project

The dredging operations on the access channel to the Port of Maputo have received a major boost with the arrival of the Van Oord’s trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) HAM 310.

The Jan De Nul’s TSHD De Lapérouse, which started the channel dredging work on May 21, is currently working 24/7 in this area to ensure a fast and efficient work.

Several dredgers and supporting equipment have also been mobilized for this dredging scheme.

In just one month of work, around one million cubic meters of sediment was removed from the channel.

It is estimated that a volume of 12 million cubic meters will be dredged from the channel during this dredging program which will last 10 months.

The main goal of this dredging project is to enable access for ships of up to 80,000 tons, making Maputo Port more competitive in regional and international shipping markets.
