We were sub-contracted by GMP, a consortium between OFM, ICSA and SETH of Portugal, to carry out capital dredging works in Port of Bejaia (Phase 1).

For this project, which lasted almost 2 years we had to mobilize our equipment from Malta to Algeria via sea transport. For this project we used a heavy grab dredger, 2 split barges, 1 coastal tugboat and 1 work boat. As part of the project, we also covered project management and surveying of the bays through our internal resources.

This was a project that our Company could cover through the vast experience in this field. The material dredged could only be handled with specialised equipment as it was highly compacted and odorous. High levels of safety standards were applied to safeguard the well-being of all the crew working on this project.

Works were finally surveyed and certified by the Algerian Port Authorities.

Our clients Geocean SA and Entrepose were awarded a multi-million contract for mine works at the Sirte Power Plant in Libya. Malta being so close to Libya was a natural choice for our clients to prepare their materials and equipment for the project.

We were initially engaged to provide a logistical base for their marine equipment which we safely accommodated at our facilities in Church Wharf and Coal Wharf, Marsa. Over the following months we were sub-contractors to several other works such as fabrication of steel structures, gangways, ladders, pipes, hatches and finally the casting of many concrete sinkers weighing in the region of 4,000 tons.

We also provided the transport and towage of such material onboard our barges all the way from Malta to Sirte, Libya. We were also appointed by our clients to carry out dredging works of a maintenance nature at the Power Plant in Sirte. The purpose of our works was to allow the discharging of the Power Plant pipes allowing them to be embedded on the seabed. The dredging equipment used was primarily the grab dredger, the hopper barge and the work boat. Our spud barge was later deployed to accurately place the discharged pipes in their final position.

We pride ourselves in covering this major project through all our own equipment and staff personnel. All deadlines were met without exception to the satisfaction of both our clients.
