Jan De Nul Makes Progress in Kingston, Jamaica

The Kingston Harbor dredging program, undertaken by concessionaire Kingston Freeport Terminal Limited (KFTL), is progressing according to schedule, Jamaica Information Service (JIS) just announced.

Being conducted under phase one of the Kingston Container Terminal (KCT) Expansion Scheme, the project involves deepening of the entry channel and reinforcing the quay at Port Bustamante to allow for access of larger vessels, which are passing through the region following the recent expansion of the Panama Canal.

As recently reported, Sodraco SAS, subsidiary of Jan De Nul Group, is part of a consortium that has been made responsible for the expansion of the Port of Kingston.

For the Kingston dredging program, Jan De Nul will mobilize 6 vessels; the cutter suction dredger Marco Polo with four accompanying split barges and the trailing suction hopper dredger Pedro Alvares Cabrál.

“We are very pleased that once more we have gained the confidence to play an important role in the further development of this port,” commented recently Dominique Bombaert, Area Manager at Jan De Nul Group.

It is expected that this capital expansion program will be completed by December 2018 at a cost of approximately $150 million, JIS said.
