We eventually dredged and reclaimed 4 million m³ of material. Works started with our trailing suction hopper dredger, 'Lange Wapper' which dredged the Eastern area for the reclamation of a so-called “Prefabrication area”.
After this first campaign, we mobilised a cutter suction dredger for dredging along the container quay wall and for the reclamation of the container terminal and part of the grains’ quay. During this second campaign we dredged about 2 million m³. The mobilisation of the Seagoing rock cutter CSD 'Ambiorix', was necessary in order to cope with the potential presence of rock outcrops in the dredging area.
In the third stage of the project we realised the final dredge level and the reclamation of the remaining areas, using a small hopper dredger that sourced the sand within the Sand Borrow Area for which DEME had received a concession from the Moroccan Authorities.
