We dredged 129,000 m3 sand and limestone to –10.5 CD to form the Berth 6, toe line and turning basin in 1997.
A 50,000m3 beach re-nourishment project was also completed following the berth 6 program.
An environmental dredging program of 180,000 m3 was completed in 2002/03 prior to the 3000 tonne ‘Leonardo Da Vinci’ deepening the harbour in hard rock. We cleared the harbour floor of contaminated sediment and placed it into a sealed containment area. This involved dredging along the limestone interface and large volumes of rock were present in the spoil.
In 2003 we dredged approx. 40,000 m3 from the old yacht club marina area for preparations to form a new tug boat haven.
