Dredging of Suape’s outer channel successfully completed by Van Oord

Posted on May 27, 2024

Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 24 May 2024 – Van Oord has successfully finished the dredging of the outer channel to the Port of Suape, an important port in the Northeast of Brazil. The dredging of the channel up to 20 metres enables the port to handle larger, more efficient, container and (liquid) bulk vessels. This is a key part of the port’s growth plans and government strategy to boost the economic development of the region.

Van Oord has deepened the access channel to the Port of Suape from 15 to 20 metres. To execute the project, Van Oord deployed various dredgers to meet the challenges of the project. It is a major milestone for Van Oord and for the Port of Suape that the project has now successfully been completed.

The completion of this project once again emphasises Van Oord’s strong position in South America. Van Oord has been active in Brazil for over 45 years and has executed more than 100 dredging and marine construction projects along the Brazilian coast. The ports of Brazil are responsible for 90% of the total exports of the country, by moving one billion tonnes of goods each year. These exports will be an important driver for future growth in Brazil.
