About this project
Our company has years of experience in the port of Haifa since the 1990s. After a tender in 2004 and a long award process, the project to create a new container port was awarded in 2005 to the company A. Arenson Construction Ltd. and Dutch Dredging was asked as a subcontractor for the dredging and reclamation work.
- Spraying up the sand between the sheet piles, with many restrictions on progress.
- During construction, the customer realized that the quays could possibly accommodate more depths than the originally intended -14m, which meant that a few extra meters of clay had to be dredged. This was carried out by the bucket dredger and the crane pontoon.
- Total quantities: 2,500,000m3 of land reclamation with TSHD Amazone and 725,000m2 of dredging work with TSHD, bucket dredger and crane pontoon.
