The dredging has begun

January 5, 2017 by adminKFTL

After months of detailed planning and preparation in which Kingston Freeport Terminal Ltd was granted an Environmental permit by the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), the company launched its dredging campaign on Thursday January 5th. The dredging campaign is an important aspect of KFTL’s development plan for the terminal, which is aimed at the significant development of the terminal’s infrastructure.

The objective of this campaign is to widen the access channel and deepen the shipping basin to accommodate the large Post Panamax Vessels that are expected to make regular calls at KFTL after transiting the newly expanded Panama Canal.

The campaign, which will be executed on a 24 hours per day, seven days per week basis, is scheduled to last between 6 and 8 months and is being undertaken by Sodraco International. During this time KFTL will host a number of members of the Sodraco team who will be working on the project
