Capital dredging works :
Capital dredging and port extension works entail the creation of new or the deepening, widening or enlarging of existing access channels, swinging basins and harbor docks.
Capital dredging and port extension works are of great economic significance as a result of the expansion of world trade which requires and/or forces all ports to increase their capacity.
Either existing harbor basins or access channels are deepened or completely new harbors are created to receive larger commercial vessels.
Most new harbors are developed in order to meet the ever increasing demand for raw materials and the expanding world trade.
For primary raw materials such as coal, iron ore and other basic metals and for the oil and gas trade new specialized harbors are now built all over the world.
