Project Type: Sea Disposal
Location: Carrickfergus harbour & marina
Coordinates: Within a 0.25 nautical mile radius of the following coordinates: Belfast Dredgings ‘C’ 54° 45.300’ N, 05° 29.600’ W
Project Description: In Carrickfergus Marina, we propose that individual fairways should be allocated to the dredging contractor on a sequential basis and that each fairway should be cleared of vessels, have fingers removed and be prepared at least a few days ahead of the staged arrival of the dredger. In this way there should be dredging work ongoing in one fairway with final boat removal occurring concurrently in the next fairway. Once each fairway has dredging completed, we envisage that boats from further fairways may be stacked temporarily into those areas already completed. It is expected that the disposal site, “Belfast Dredgings C”, will be used for the disposal operations.
