Starting in late March / early April, the dredge works are expected to be completed by the end of May 2023.

The contractor for this project – Rhode Neilsen – will be using their trailer suction hopper dredger (TSHD) MODI R and support vessel Molly Grace.

Dredging of the Outer Harbor, shipping channel and the swing basin will allow modern big ships to berth at the port safely.
