Maintenance dredging operations are currently underway at the Port of Hay Point, North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP) said in its latest release. 

The dredging works in this area are critical for maintaining port infrastructure and involve relocating sediment which travels along the coast and accumulates over the years where the shipping operations occur.

NQBP is using the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Brisbane – supported by a bed leveling tug and a survey vessel – to undertake the maintenance dredging operations.

“Boaties are urged to stay clear of the dredge and support vessels as they have restricted maneuvering capability,” said NQBP.

The approved Dredge Material Placement Area (DMPA) is 6km north of port operations.

It is expected that this dredging program will be completed no later than May 10, 2019.
