Van Oord, Dutch contracting company that specializes in dredging and land reclamation, completed the dredging operations in the access channel and the maneuvering basins of Beira Port, Mozambique, earlier this month. 

Local media reported that the dredging works on this project, which started approximately six months ago, were finished earlier this month.

Van Oord used its trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Volvox Atalanta to dredge the port access channel to its original width and depth. The Sagar Manthan was also included in the project, conducting the bed-leveling operations.

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.

Reinstating the port access channel to its charted lines and levels is of great importance to facilitate the growing maritime transport in this region, said Van Oord in their official statement.
