Green Light for Dublin Port Dredging Scheme

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted permission for a major dredging scheme at Dublin Port.

The permission, granted on Tuesday, September 13th, clears the final hurdle for the proposed new cruise liner terminal for the city.

According to EPA, the proposed capital dredging scheme will extend from the North Wall Quay Extension in the River Liffey Channel to the – 10m CD contour in Dublin Bay. Loading of marine sediments will take place along the entire length of the proposed capital dredging scheme.

The EPA licence also covers disposal of dredged sediments at the existing offshore disposal site located at the entrance to Dublin Bay west of the Burford Bank.

The dredging scheme is a part of the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR) Project – the largest port related infrastructure project in the history of the Irish State.

The €230 million ABR project will enable the port to double its trade capacity to 60 million tonnes per annum by 2040. It will also enable the largest cruise liners in the world to safely berth in the River Liffey Channel at the heart of Dublin City.

The project involves the creation/rehabilitation of 3km of quay walls, new berthing facilities, infilling of the Basin at Berths 52 & 53, deepening of the fairway & provision of marina protection structure.
