Boskalis Wins $45M Channel Widening Deal

MarineLink.com

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) won a contract for the widening of the Port Adelaide Outer Harbor shipping channel in Australia. The project was awarded by port owner and operator Flinders Ports, and the contract is worth approximately $45m.

Boskalis will widen the shipping channel by 40 meters to 170 meters and extend the turning basin to accommodate the larger and more efficient Post Panamax container ships which are increasingly dominating global containerized cargo transport. The expanded channel will also accommodate larger cruise ships.

An estimated amount of 1.5 million cubic meters of mainly sand and clay material will be removed with a trailing suction hopper dredger and a large backhoe dredger. The project will be executed in the second half of 2019.
