Tender Announced for Bordeaux Dredging Project

Grand Port Maritime de Bordeaux has invited bidders to submit their offers for the La Gironde dredging project.

With the main goal to deepen the estuary and West passes in La Gironde, this cleanup scheme will include dredging works in two phases.

  • Downstream passes, approximately 4,200,000 m³ of material to be removed, anticipated duration approximately 4 months;
  • Optional phase: Droit Ouest passes, about 750,000 m³ of material to be removed, anticipated duration 1.5 months.
