Dredging International, a DEME Group subsidiary, and Van Oord have been awarded a major contract for the modernization of the Świnoujście – Szczecin fairway in Poland.

The contract, co-financed by the European Union, has a value of approximately EUR 313 million and covers the deepening and widening of the fairway along a section of approximately 62 km, said DEME.

The project is a design and build contract to deepen and widen the fairway from -10.5 to -12.5m. The dredged materials will be used to build two artificial islands in the Szczecin lagoon.

According to DEME, the works further include enforcements of slopes and quay walls along the channel, relocation of cables and navigational aids.

The environmental sustainability and cooperation with all project stakeholders play an important role during execution.

Several types of equipment will be deployed on the project, DEME said in its release.

“The combination of state of the art dredging equipment, the consortium’s vast international experience in design and build projects and most importantly our integrated team of experts enabled DEME and Van Oord to bring the most cost efficient solution,” said Eric Tancré, Area Director Europe at DEME.

Govert van Oord, Area Director Europe at Van Oord, added: “It is a challenging project and an opportunity to demonstrate Van Oord’s and DEME’s capabilities in offering integrated dredging solutions to our client. Our project team is looking forward to working closely with our Client and all stakeholders, in order to contribute to the further modernization of the maritime infrastructure in Poland and at the same time enhancing the environment during execution.”

Works will start end of 2018 and are expected to be completed in 42 months.
