Van Oord, a Dutch contracting company that specializes in dredging and land reclamation, has been contracted by CFM – the ports and railways company of Mozambique – to carry out emergency dredging works in the Port of Beira.

“Reinstating the port access channel to its charted lines and levels is of great importance to facilitate the growing maritime transport in this region,” the Rotterdam based dredging company said in its release.

Trailing suction hopper dredger Volvox Atalanta will dredge the port access channel to its original width and depth and will be assisted by the Sagar Manthan for bed-levelling operations.

Execution of the project will start soon and will take six months to complete, Van Oord said.

The Port of Beira acts as a gateway to the central interior area of the country as well as the land-locked nations of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
