The Dublin Port dredging scheme started yesterday and will continue until March 2018, Dublin Port Company (DPC) said in their announcement.

The dredging operations are being carried out by New Waves Solutions, a subsidiary of the International Dredging Company DEME, using the trailer suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Minerva.

This dredging program is part of the Capital Dredging Program 2017 – part of the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR) Project – which is phase one of the Port’s Masterplan 2012-2040.

The necessary statutory permissions required to carry out the capital dredging works were granted to DPC by Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government (Foreshore Consent) and Environmental Protection Agency (Dumping at Sea Permit).

The main goal of this dredging work is to enable larger and deeper draft cargo ships and cruisers to enter the port.
