Dredging Operations at Kwai Tsing Container Terminal 5

With immediate effect and for a period of approximately 5 months, dredging operations will be carried out within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following coordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (D) and the adjacent shoreline:

(A) 22º 20.910’ N / 114º 07.161’ E
(B) 22º 20.884’ N / 114º 07.170’ E
(C) 22º 20.816’ N / 114º 06.936’ E
(D) 22º 20.842’ N / 114º 06.928’ E

The works will be carried out by a grab dredger. Two tugboats, three split hopper barges and a workboat will assist in the works. The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.

A working area of approximately 50 metres around the grab dredger will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the grab dredger.

The hours of works will be round-the-clock.

Vessels engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in international and local regulations.

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.
