About this project
The former British colony Antigua, is a Caribbean island with 365 beaches. This means that we can try a different beach every day for a year, but... that is not what we came for.
In Antigua they built a new cruise terminal for the oasis and quantum-class cruise ships. This requires more draught in the channel of 12.3m and a large turning circle 11.3m deep with a matching mooring basin of 10.8m deep
So it is very important to bring these locations to the right depth. Our activities are:
- The removal of silt and soft clays from the access channel and turning basin (Maintenance dredging)
- The removal of clay from the access channel and turning basin (Capital dredging).
