Hall Contracting backhoe dredge arrives in Port Hedland

A Hall Contracting backhoe dredge arrived in Port Hedland last week, Spoilbank Marina said.

Due to its low clearance hull design, the dredge was transported from the Middle East on board a semi-submersible heavy load carrier.

After arriving at anchorage, the heavy load carrier was submersed, allowing the dredge to float off.

Now anchored at the Port of Port Hedland, prep work is underway on the dredge before dredging works commence at the Spoilbank Marina in early July.
