Site Visit to Portsmouth Dredging Project

Boskalis Westminster, with the permission from the Ministry of Defense, will be hosting a CEDA UK visit to the current 3 million m³ capital dredging project at Portsmouth.

This site visit, set to take place on Tuesday, October 18th 2016, will explore the dredging operation aimed at granting access to the new Queen Elizabeth Class of ships.

The Boskalis Project Manager, Gerrit-Jan van den Bosch, will give a presentation and boat tour of the harbor.

This project, in the Portsmouth Naval Base, includes capital dredging of the approaches, harbor entrance, turning basin and berth pocket, and will enable the new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers to operate from the port.

The works are being undertaken using a combination of backhoe dredgers, trailing suction hopper dredgers and crane barges from the Boskalis fleet.

Gerrit-Jan will also describe the innovative methods and technology adopted for location and removal of debris and obstructions from within the dredge area.
