The Challenge

In order to allow vessels with a size of 30,000 DWT or 1,700 TEU to visit the Port of Durres in the near future, the entrance channel, the basin and berths of the port should be deepened through a Capital Dredging Campaign, to be tendered by Durres Port Authority. For this reason Durres Port Authority contracted HPC to elaborate the design and complete tender documents for the dredging works to deepen the entrance channel and the basin of its port and to conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). The studies were accompanied by field investigations, such as geotechnical investigations, bathymetric surveys and environmental analysis of sediment samples.In order to allow vessels with a size of 30,000 DWT or 1,700 TEU to visit the Port of Durres in the near future, the entrance channel, the basin and berths of the port should be deepened through a Capital Dredging Campaign, to be tendered by Durres Port Authority.
