Geraldton Maintenance Dredging

GPA engaged BMT to manage all aspects of the dredging works, from the preparation of drawings and contract documents through to 24 hour supervision on board the dredge for the duration of the project.

Summary

The Port of Geraldton, located approximately 400 km north of Perth, facilitates trade of a wide variety of products including iron ore, grain, fuel, metals, mineral sand, talc, garnet and fertiliser. In order to remove material which had accumulated since the previous Port Expansion Project (2002/03), the Geraldton Port Authority (GPA) undertook maintenance dredging of the shipping channel and basin. 

Jan de Nul’s (JDN) Trailer Suction Hopper Dredge, Sebastiano Caboto, was utilised to remove 130,000 m3 of dredged material which was pumped to an onshore reclamation area.

GPA engaged BMT to manage all aspects of the dredging works, from the preparation of drawings and contract documents through to 24 hour supervision on board the dredge for the duration of the project.
