More Contract Awards for Great Lakes Dredge

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (GLDD), last Friday announced the receipt of a combined $87.3 million in awarded work across four projects, including the $47.2 million award for the Post 45 Foot Charleston Entrance Channel Maintenance Dredging.

The scope of work for Charleston I includes excavation of approximately 6.1 million cubic yards of material to deepen a portion of the Charleston, South Carolina Harbor Entrance Channel. Work is expected to commence later this year and be completed by March 2020.

The additional three projects include:

  • Baltimore Harbor Dredging, Cape Henry Channel, Virginia Beach, Virginia ($14.5 million);
  • Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies Repair; Great Egg Harbor Inlet and Peck Beach ($13.7 million);
  • Beach Renourishment; City of Isle of Palms, South Carolina ($11.9 million).

Work on these three projects will begin in Fall 2017 and be completed in Summer 2018.

David Simonelli, President of Dredging Operations commented, “The Charleston I deepening project is an important win for the company representing the start of the overall massive Charleston Port Deepening works. We are pleased to see the Corps of Engineers, State of South Carolina and South Carolina Port Authority moving this crucial work forward on an expedited basis to improve neo-Panamax vessel access to Charleston.

According to GLDD, the Cape Henry maintenance dredging and Great Egg Harbor and Isle of Palms coastal protection work will employ one hopper dredge and two cutter dredges.
