PHOTO: TSHD Sospan Dau Working on the DWDR Development

Last week, the Port of Dover released a beautiful sunset photo of trailing suction hopper dredger Sospan Dau working on the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development project.

The DWDR Principal Contractor, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster (VSBW), has mobilized various items of floating equipment to undertake initial Dover harbor dredging and remove soft sediment from the area.

According to the port, the first vessel to arrive was the self-propelled crane barge ‘Kreeft’. Dredging vessels that are engaged in the project include two trailing suction hopper dredgers, the 1,500m³ ‘Sospan Dau’ and one of the 4,500m³ Causeway class vessels.

Harder material will be dredged with the ‘MP40’ backhoe dredger, which will transfer dredged material to the 800m³ self-discharging split hopper barges ‘Wadden 1’ and ‘Wadden 4’ for removal to the designated offshore licensed disposal area.

The port expects to welcome up to twenty different VSBW vessels over the next eight weeks as it enters the harbor dredging phase this month prior to piling commencing.
