COOPERATION FOR DREDGING WATERWAYS IN JAMAICA
In Jamaica, and more broadly in the Caribbean, West Indies and Bahamas, Ocean Dredging provides a wide range of services, including the reconstruction of banks and eroded beaches through backfilling operations as well as the land reclamation. Our first dredging contract in Jamaica contrat first dredging contract dates back to 2017.
In order to facilitate marine traffic, we also carry out the removal of sediment in deep water, decontamination, maintenance, deepening, widening or expansion of access channels, berths and turning basins used by the largest vessels.
