During this cleanup scheme, approximately 127.000m³ will be removed from the port areas and the works will be performed by the USPA owned trailing suction hopper Meotida.

With a length of 59.20 meters and breadth of 11 meters, the vessel is fully automatic and can reach a maximum speed of 9.5 knots.
