Dredging works port of Filyos, Turkey
Dredging works port of Filyos
Over a distance of more than 3 km, Jan De Nul dredged about 24,000,000m³ sediments, sometimes containing gravel. And all that in a period of only 18 months. For this project, we deployed several trailing suction hopper dredgers and a large suction cutter. To protect the harbour against external factors, we placed more than 21,000 X-blocks. Thanks to sound communication and clear planning, we made sure that the vessels could work together in an optimal manner, within the planned deadline. Once the works completed, the harbour had a freight capacity of 25 million tonnes per year.
