The American company providing construction services in dredging and land reclamation, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD) announced the receipt of several major dredging awards totaling $141 million.

The North America's dredging industry leader said in a release that  awarded work includes: Jacksonville Deepening Contract B Option (Capital Deepening, Florida, $96.6 million); Baltimore Harbor (Maintenance, Maryland, $38.4 million) and Boston Harbor (Maintenance, Massachusetts, $5.6 million).

The base scope for the Jacksonville Deepening Contract B was won in 2018 and the option work is a continuation of channel deepening an additional 2.5 miles upriver. Work is expected to begin in September with completion in late 2020, said the largest provider of marine dredging in the US.

The Baltimore Harbor project involves maintenance dredging of the sea-lanes into Baltimore and is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2020. Dredge material is to be pumped for beneficial use.

The Boston Harbor project is maintenance dredging of the inner harbor channels and is expected to commence in late September.

David Simonelli, President of Dredging commented, “We are pleased to announce these significant capital and maintenance dredging awards for our Company. We expect these projects to contribute positively to Great Lakes’ performance this year and in 2020 and contribute to the strengthening of the U.S. infrastructure.”
