Over the next few weeks, TSHD Elbe will dredge approximately 120,000m3 of material and dispose at the approved site approximately 2km just off Plymouth.

The commencement of the dredging of Port Little Bay marks another key milestone in advancing the Montserrat Port Development Project.

This project will improve the efficiency, effectiveness and resilience of the port facilities to provide a safe harbor and accessibility to all users. The infrastructure works include the construction of an offshore breakwater and quay wall, new access road, dredging works and slope stabilisation.
