The works involved the preparation of an an island dewatering pad the size of 2 football fields first. The crews dug out water holding cells with minimum disturbance to the environment. Special care was made to capture and relocate wild life that depended on the island. The relocation works took several weeks to complete.

Additional crews worked on the assembly of the dredge. The dredge, given its massive size, had arrived in containers, from the United states. The assembly took less than 2 weeks to complete. Additional works such as component testing took an additional few days. Pipeline was then laid and the main dreding works began.

Remembering how the preconstruction process, went, it would be an understatement to say that the begining of the dredging works was the easiest part as is always the case. The amount of rock and tree stumps in on the sea bed made dredging a very slow and laborious process.

Hug rocks often and debris often cut off the cutterheads ability to cut. Continous efforts where made to rectify problem after problems. Not to mention huge tree stumps clogging up the pump and pipeline more that several times a day, but hey, the project was classified as a "dificult to dredge works" and nothing was lost to translation. "I was surprised how a small and capable team is able to achieve huge milestones by solving seemingly difficult problems" says our CEO, who personally inspected the works. 

True, Delian Garber and his team gave it all and completed the Port works in less than 9 months. Did we mention the biggest gators we've ever seen basked in those waters?
