DREDGING AND RECLAMATION WORKS PHASE 4B

Project Description

The new project site is located in Federal Ocean Terminal (FOT). The inland section will be approx. 600 Ha (or 6 million square metres) and include 48.6 Ha (1560m x 312m) of removal of unsuitable materials for the construction of the new channel in the future development area. It is expected to be completed in 6-8 years, taking into account the major settlement expected in the section.

Different types of dredgers are planned for the project, depending on the distance to the sites for bringing in suitable materials. The likely equipment will be a cutter suction dredger (CSD) and a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD).

Three possible scenario during the dredging as follows:

  1. Dredging sand with medium TSHD within range of 2-3 km from the reclamation area
  2. Dredging sand with large TSHD Bonny River Mouth
  3. Dredging overburden and sand with CSD new Channel
