DEME Group has successfully completed a major dredging project in central Vietnam.
The company yesterday released this beautiful photo of their mighty trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Congo River, navigating through the South China Sea after wrapping up the job in Vietnam.
“We deepened the turning basin and access channel to the port of Dung Quat on behalf of a major steel producing company,” said the company in their latest announcement.
“Working closely with our local partner, the project was finished ahead of our client’s schedule.”
“Crucially, our client can save cargo costs and conveniently export their finished products from the newly constructed deep-water berths.”
After receiving the Notice to Commence, DEME mobilized the TSHDs Brabo and Congo River in January 2019 for this project.
The work included deepening of the turning basin and channel of the new port in Quang Ngai province. Additionally, improving access to the adjacent steel plant was also part of this job.
In fact, with a capacity of 30,190 m3, the Congo River is the largest trailing suction hopper dredger in DEME’s fleet.
