Van Oord’s MAAS to begin London Gateway dredging
Van Oord’s hybrid water-injection dredger MAAS is about to begin its next project – maintenance dredging of the London Gateway Port.
According to the Port of London Authority, dredging operations in the vicinity of Berths No. 1 and 2 will commence on or about 06th May 2023.
Dredging – to be carried out by dredger MAAS during ebb tides only – will last for approximately one week. The work is expected to be completed by 13th May 2023.
Built for Van Oord by Kooiman Marine Group, MAAS had its debut operation on the River Thames last year when she successfully dredged the Port of Tilbury.
