All Set for Hafan Pwllheli Dredging Program

Important dredging work at Hafan Pwllheli marina in North Wales has been scheduled for 2018.

The plan to dredge the harbor entrance and the main channel to maintain its design depth has already been agreed, according to the Hafan Pwllheli official website.

Work on clearing the entrance of silt using land-based machinery will start on 9th April and is expected to take a few weeks.

The following month a tug boat equipped with bed leveling machinery will be employed to remove any bumps in the main channel that runs through the outer harbor. Dredging will then stop over the summer months to minimize disruption to berth holders.

Wil Williams, Hafan Pwllheli Marina Manager, said: “We are pleased to report that dredging of the entrance will begin in April, moving on to the channel leveling work in May. This is routine work and part of our ongoing maintenance program.”

“During the winter months we can get a build up of silt at the entrance and high spots in the channel. This has to be remedied periodically. Once this is complete, the entrance and channel will be returned to the designed depth of 0.5m below Chart Datum, providing excellent access to the marina for most yachts at virtually all states of the tide.

More extensive dredging of the marina basin itself is then planned for October 2018. This was last carried out four years ago when 90,000 cubic meters of dredged material were removed from the harbor.
