Dredging of the Traverse du Nord and Bécancour
Safe navigable waterways
Québec and Bécancour, September 2014 - Since September 2012, the new trailing suction hopper dredge Ocean Traverse Nord extracts about 70,000 m3 of sediments each year for the maintenance dredging contract of the Traverse du Nord. The contract will be lasting 7 years in total. This dredging of the Traverse du Nord and Bécancour portions allows the 6,000 vessels to navigate safely all year long.
This year, the team at Ocean Dredging DSM completed the task in a record time!
