Sorensen Civil Engineering has signed a contract with the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine for the Dinish Wharf Completion Works project.
The project will double the workable quay space on Dinish Island and will deliver approximately 2.2 acres of highly usable reclaimed quay storage area, two new major breakwaters at the entrance to the harbour.
Dredging of the navigation channel and the syncrolift, making the boatyard more accessible for larger vessels, is also included in the contract.
An inner basin is also being created which will provide an ideal future development area for a small craft harbour to the benefit of small fishing vessels and leisure craft.
Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD, presided at the signing for the final phase of the quay development project on Dinish Island, Castletownbere.
Works are due to start on site shortly.
