PLTU 2 Jateng Adipala Dredging Project, Cilacap, Central Java
September 7, 2014
With a total volume of 3,000,000 cubic meter of sand, the massive work in Central Java comprises capital dredging, port basin, turning basin and channel dredging. It targeted -11 m LWS in depth, and an efficiently designed offshore and onshore dumping area. The combined equipment of Cutter Suction Dredger GJ 901 and Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger Bali II to remove on-site material—mostly made up of sand and mud—took 9 months to complete.
The dredging work is significant to ensure the safe coal transport to the 700 megawatt power plan, one of the chief infrastructure projects in Central Java with estimated worth of IDR2.2 trillion. It is scheduled to fully operate by early 2016.
