Final stages approach for Hedland deepening

CROP will deliver a refuge zone and an emergency passing lane to the 42 km unidirectional shipping channel in the world’s largest iron ore port, as well as remove high spots in the outer section of the channel to optimise navigable depths.

 

Dredging of the refuge zone was completed in late 2018, and Jan De Nul will remove remaining high spots in the passing lane and channel, using the cutter suction dredger NICCOLO MACHIAVELLI to complete the project. CROP has been undertaken in stages in conjunction with annual maintenance dredging campaigns, and this final stage is due to take place between April and June 2019.

 

CROP is funded under the Port Improvement Rate (PIR), a temporary levy charged on vessels entering and exiting Port Hedland to fund capital improvements.
