Itajai’s imminent dredging programme

Itajai’s imminent dredging programme

The US$32m capital dredging investment has been allocated by the National Dredging Program (PNG).

Jan De Nul, one of the world’s largest dredging groups was awarded the contract and its 223 m long Charles Darwin hopper dredger of 30.500 cu m carrying capacity has already arrived in Itajai and will soon start operations. The brand new dredger is the largest and most powerful ever to operate in Brazilian waters.

A smaller dredger will also be used to carry out works alongside the river banks and in some other smaller and shallow areas which the hopper dredger is unable to access.
