Following the successful conclusion of dredging activities within Snake Island Port, the company was able to receive general cargo vessel measuring 143 meters overall (LOA), 21.75 meters wide and 9 meters deep that discharged 10,600 units of general cargo weighing 13,000 tons.

The project involved dredging down to a depth of 10.5 meters with a length overall (LOA) of 200 meters. This increases Nigerdock capacity and depth of the terminal, optimizing the port efficiency for a variety of services including berthing, cargo handling, stevedoring, transshipment, and warehouse management.
