More dredging work takes place at Jurong Port

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has just announced that more dredging work at the Jurong Port’s berth J9 will occur in the following months.

The working period has been extended from November 20, 2021, to May 19, 2022, for the dredging operations in the vicinity of Damar Laut Basin, MPA said.

The existing structures will be demolished using land-based equipment and the debris will be removed by crane barges into hopper barges.

Dredging works will be carried out along the revetment area of the berth. The berth will then be rebuilt by use of piling and crane barges supported by work barges, anchor and tug boats.

According to the official announcement, a safety boat will be in attendance at all times to warn and re-direct crafts in the vicinity to keep clear of the working area.
