Jenkins Marine ready for Haslar Marina scheme

Later this week, Jenkins Marine Ltd will begin the next round of maintenance dredging works within the Haslar Marina Gosport.

The dredging is set to begin from 17 September 2021 with the completion expected by early November 2021, reported the Queen’s Harbor Master Portsmouth.

Haslar Gosport, Hampshire, GB, is an all tide 650 berth marina which requires regular maintenance dredging and this year there is an estimated 15,000-30,000m3 of material to dredge.

As in previous years, Jenkins Marine will use their 30.1m backhoe dredger ‘DOREEN DORWARD’ to complete the Haslar project.

The spoil will be loaded into one of two 44.1m self propelled split hopper barges “NAB” or “NEEDLES” for disposal to the Nab spoil Ground. Operations will be conducted daily between 0600 and 2100 Monday to Friday but with the option to work weekends if bad weather is a factor, the Harbor Master said.
