Port Maintenance Dredging Contract in Argentina

  23/02/2012
Royal Boskalis Westminster (The Netherlands) has been awarded a contract for capital and maintenance dredging in the port of Bahía Blanca, Argentina. The contract value is approximately EUR90 million and was acquired together with the Jan de Nul Group, Belgium. Boskalis' share of the total contract is approximately EUR55 million.
 

The project scope includes capital dredging and a five-year maintenance contract to maintain the depth. The capital dredging work will be performed in 2012, and 5.5 million cubic metres of firm soil will be removed with a large seagoing cutter suction dredger. This firm soil consists mainly of shale. The maintenance contract requires the annual removal of approximately 3.8 million cubic metres of silt over a period of five years and will be carried out with a trailing suction.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
