The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Japan District, has just released a pre-solicitation notice for an upcoming Yokohama North Dock Maintenance Dredging.
According to the notice, the project calls for maintenance dredging and subsequent disposal of approximately 50,000 cubic meters of dredge sediments within the U.S. Exclusive Use Area (EUA) in the v-shaped turning basin and wet storage area at Yokohama North Dock located in Kanagawa, Japan.
Under the scheme, the turning basin will be dredged to a depth of (-) 5.0 meters and the wet storage area to a depth of (-) 5.6 meters.
The disposal of dredged material has been planned at either the Yokosuka Ise-Cho Disposal Facility or other available land reclamation sites.
USACE intends to solicit the forthcoming dredging project in May 2017.
