Wasa Dredging, a Finnish water construction company, has just released this amazing photo from the Kokkola Harbor and Fairway Deepening Project in Finland. 

Under the contract, signed in late July 2018, Wasa is responsible for dredging of the harder materials and heavily polluted soils, drilling and blasting of rock and removal of unexploded ordnance (UXO-risk) masses in the Kokkola area.

The dredging operations started one year ago, and the project completion is set for the end of 2020.

According to the Port of Kokkola’s latest announcement, the new 14 meter safe draft will allow a more effective utilization of the cargo carrying capacities of Panamax and Capesize class vessels.
