ML Dredging are back on the Beaulieu River for the dredging phase 2 of the £2 million re-development at Bucklers Hard Marina.
The Marina is close to the historical 18th century UK shipbuilding site at Bucklers Hard and the new investment is seen as securing the future of the marina over the next 25 years as one of the most popular locations, while keeping pace with modern demands for bigger berths and coping with increased visitor numbers.
Once completed, the marina will get an additional 66 berths taking the total number of moorings up to 264. The development also includes upgraded facilities for both berth holders and visitors.
ML Dredging completed dredging Phase 1 of the development in 2018 with their road transportable multi roll vessel ” BOXER” and split hopper barge” Split Three”.
This year “Split Three” has returned to the Beaulieu River to complete Phase 2 alongside the backhoe dredger “Witton II” and split hopper barge “Split Two”.
