The Hanstholm harbour expansion
Effective dredging solutions for a larger harbour
To improve navigation and to accommodate larger ships, a major harbour expansion is being planned for the Danish Port of Hanstholm. Since it is a bypass harbour, the Port allows a large part of the sand moving along the coast to pass, decreasing the need for dredging. The future harbour’s expansion plans however, may cause sedimentation to increase. We analysed the sedimentation conditions and suggested a dredging approach which could meet the growing navigation needs. We also assessed the environmental impact of the planned development. Thus, our dredging solutions made it possible for our client to effectively proceed with the expansion plans.
