CHINA Harbour Engineering Company Ltd (CHEC), together with the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority, have completed the dredging project in the seaport of Chernomorsk in less than 11 months, said the port authority, reported Xinhua.

Work on the project started in August last year and involved dredging over 1.5 million cubic metres. The whole project was completed in two stages with the first involving dredging of the maritime approach channel to the seaport. With help from the CHEC, the approach channel was reconstructed for the first time in 20 years.



The second stage of the project involved dredging works in the operating water of the port's Sukhyi estuary.



Head of the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority, Raivis Veckagans, commented: 'After finishing the ongoing and planned renovation works, Chernomorsk deepwater berths will be able to receive panamax type large-tonnage vessels with a draft up to 14.5 metres and postpanamaxes with deadweight up to 75,000 tonnes and containerships 8,000 TEU.



'This will increase our port's competitiveness in the Black Sea and will allow state and private stevedoring companies operating in the port to attract new cargo traffic.'



The Chinese company was selected as the contractor in an open bidding in 2018 and has helped the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority save about US$1.5 million in this dredging project, according to the port authority statement.
