The Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) is working on a project which includes maintenance dredging of the Kherson seaport.
The company on Friday, August 18, invited interested bidders via the ProZorro electronic procurement system to participate in the tender.
Kherson seaport is located on the right bank of River Dnipro. The design depth of the port’s waters is 8.25 meters, but the declared draft is 7.6 meters.
According to USPA, the estimated cost of dredging work is $1.75 million. The volume of soil to be removed from the bottom of the port’s waters is 152,000 cubic meters. The deadline for completing the work is three months.
The Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority expects both Ukrainian and foreign dredging companies to show interest and submit their offers by September 18.
This is not the only project the company is working on, USPA is also preparing maintenance dredging of the ports of Reni (tenders have already been invited via the ProZorro procurement system), Odesa, Mariupol, and Berdiansk in 2017.
In addition, maintenance dredging of the approach channel to the Mykolaiv seaport (the 13th tributary of the Dnieper-Bug Estuary) and the Kherson maritime channel will be performed.
