Van Oord has won a contract to keep the approach channel to the Port of Kandla, India, up to depth for the next three years.

The approach channel is a crucial gateway to the port, which is one of the major ports in western India, said Van Oord.

The contract was awarded by the Client Kandla Port Trust (KPT) and the dredging activities are set to begin this month.

“We are very happy to win this project after having successfully completed several other projects in the Kandla area. We are looking forward to being of service to our client again,” said Ton van der Burg, South West Asia Area Manager.

Trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHD) Volvox Delta and Volvox Asia will be deployed to maintain the channel and berth approaches.

During execution, Van Oord’s dredging activities will have a minimum impact on the busy maritime transport route, the company said.

The dredged material will be deposited in a designated area at sea.
