The dredging phase of the Kingstown Port Modernization Project, undertaken by Van Oord’s dredger HAM 316, was completed in June this year.

Under the contract, the dredger HAM 316 moved a total of 1.17 million cubic metres of sand from the seabed off the south east coast of St. Vincent, to Kingstown where new land is being reclaimed to construct a new container port.

The Port Modernization Project is the second largest capital project in this country’s history.

The scheme forms part of Government’s urban development program which includes the rehabilitation of Little Tokyo.
