KYIV. Aug 8 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Ukrainian Sea Port Authority has announced a tender to carry out dredging works in Reni port with the expected cost of works of UAH 6.6 million and the approximate volume of works of 41,600 cubic meters.
“The dredging project we have launched at Reni port is intended to support its technical characteristics. This is the usual development plan that was not fulfilled in the previous years,” Authority Head Ravis Veckagans said.
He said that the Reni port is interesting for freight owners: in H1 2017, freight handling here grew by 21% year-over-year, to 424,180 tonnes.
The deadline for submission of bids is August 29, 2017. The dredging works are to be done in Q4 2017.
As reported, this year the authority carried out dredging works in Odesa, Chornomorsk, Olvia ports using own fleet. A contractor is involved in similar works at Mykolaiv port. In June, the authority signed a contract with Belgium’s DEME Group to remove ooze in Yuzhny port.
