Callan Marine’s latest fleet asset – the 28” cutter suction dredge General Bradley – recently initiated a maintenance dredging project located at the Bolivar Ferry Terminal.
This is the inaugural project for the General Bradley, consisting of the removal of 600,000 cubic yards of material and returning the landings to the required depth of 22’.
The dredged material is being hydraulically transported via pipeline to an adjacent placement area where a beach is being constructed.
“We are fortunate to partner with the Texas Department of Transportation for several years now,” remarked James Frazier, a Callan Marine Project Manager. “Callan Marine is proud to invest in the assets and projects that help keep the ferries operating safely.”
General Bradley joined Callan Marine’s CSD fleet in the ceremony which was held in Morgan City, Louisiana on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.
Right after the ceremony, the new dredge sailed out for its first assignment, dredging of the Port Bolivar Ferry Landing.
As reported by Callan Marine, the General Bradley is on track to complete its first dredging project by the end of this month (June 2022).
