In the end of July 2018 a joint venture consisting of Wasa Dredging and Van Oord Marine Contractors signed two separate contracts regarding a big project in Kokkola Harbour and Fairway.
The Project for Wasa Dredging’s part started in June 2018 as a subcontractor to the main contractor Dragados, the client for the project is Aberdeen Harbour. Our part of the project is planned to go on until the end of 2019.
Wasa Dredging was awarded this contract as a main contractor in 2016 and the deepening of the southern fairway into Rauma began in the spring of 2016. During the following two years (2016-2017) Wasa would deepen the fairway from 10 meter to 12 meter navigational depth.
The Port of Kalundborg decided with a public tender in 2017 to implement the plans to enlarge its port area. The tender was divided into two parts: the deepening and the construction of new quay walls.
Wasa was in May 2016 awarded a contract in the port of Klintehamn in Gotland, Sweden to dredge and re-use limestone from the fairway and harbour basin. The project was a joint venture between Klintehamn Harbour and Sjöfartsverket.
In 2015 Wasa Dredging was awarded the contract of deepening the fairway into Oslo, the capital city of Norway. The work was to be executed in four different municipalities: Oslo, Baerum, Nesodden and Frogn, along the entirety of the fairway into Oslo.
