The Hong Kong Marine Department (MARDEP) has just released the latest update on the Kwai Tsing – Container Terminal 6 Dredging Project, saying that the work will continue for a period of approximately 2 months.
According to MARDEP, the operations will be carried out by a grab dredger with three tugboats and three split hopper barges will assist in the works.
The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.
A working area of approximately 50 meters around the dredger will be established.
“Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the grab dredger,” said MARDEP.
Vessels engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in international and local regulations.
