Cowes dredging campaign in full swing

Jenkins Marine recently kicked off maintenance dredging works at several sites within the Cowes Harbour (UK).

East Cowes Marina

According to the Harbour Commission, the dredging commenced in late-February and will continue until Wednesday, April 1st 2023, depending upon weather conditions.

The works are being carried out by the dredge barge Doreen Dorward, with the spoil being deposited into the split hopper barges Nab and Needles.

Dredging operations first began at Town Quay (Tuesday 21st) after which the crews moved to the Kingston Boatyard. Now, Jenkins is dredging at the East Cowes Marina and is about halfway through the process.
