The Kingston Harbor dredging scheme, undertaken by concessionaire Kingston Freeport Terminal Limited (KFTL), is moving forward according to plan.

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, Jamaica.

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

The work is being carried out under phase one of the Kingston Container Terminal (KCT) expansion project, which is expected to be completed by December 2018, at a cost of approximately $150 million.
