TSHD Magdalen Starts Her First Project

Weeks Marine’s new hopper dredge Magdalen has arrived in Buxton (NC) to take part in one of the State’s most critical projects, the Buxton Beach Nourishment scheme.

Last week, Weeks’ President Richard S. Weeks announced that the single largest investment in the company’s 99-year history, the Magdalen will start her first project in North Carolina.

We are looking forward to observing her at work and integrating her into our dredging and marine construction family,” said Mr Weeks.

The introduction of the Magdalen has effectively doubled Weeks’ hopper dredging capacity. The RN Weeks and BE Lindholm, the company’s workhorse hopper dredges, have combined hopper capacity less than the one of the new dredge.

Prior to her arrival, the Buxton Beach Nourishment project was 74% complete with dredge RN Weeks performing the pumping operations.

Weeks Marine reported earlier in December that approximately 2 million cubic yards of sand (out of the total 2,600,000) has been placed on the beach.
