Hamburg Port Authority has just released this amazing dredging video named “Keep the Port on Depth” – XXL dredging ship in use.
The video will give you an invaluable insight into the role of Jan De Nul’s trailing suction hopper dredger “Bartolomeu Dias” in keeping the Port of Hamburg regularly dredged and maintained.
This TSHD has a hopper capacity of 14,000 m³, deadweight of 22,500 tonnes, length overall of 147.8 m, breadth of 30.0 m, draught loaded of 10.00 m, and maximum dredging depth of 52 m.
“For the around 10,000 seagoing vessels annually calling at the Port of Hamburg, reliable water depths throughout the year are essential for handling shipping traffic in the port and on the Elbe properly,” said Ingo Egloff, CEO of Port of Hamburg Marketing.
Schleswig-Holstein recently granted Hamburg permission to continue to deposit dredged material near Buoy E3 in the North Sea.
The new permission substantially increases the scope for action to continuously keep the water level deep in the Port of Hamburg.
