Stephenville Newfoundland

In 2005, Harbour Development was contracted by Port Harmon Authority Ltd. of Stephenville, Newfoundland to restore navigational water depth from within the harbour limits. In year one of this two year project, Harbour Development worked to restore the water depth of the entrance channel to the ports inner harbour. Year two of this project involved mostly turning basin and depth reclamation in the berth area.

In total, Harbour Development removed approximately 175,000 cubic meters of infill from within the Port Harmon work area. The dredge Cranemaster, along with the tugboat Swellmaster and two one thousand cubic yard scows, HD6 and HD7 were used, and new production improvement methods were successfully tested which allowed HD to perform more efficiently. In summer of 2006, the dredging works were completed. The job was done on time, within budget and to the satisfaction of the client. Harbour Development also maintained a zero accident rate during the duration of the project.
