Improvement of navigational accessibility from the South Paray Wharf to Iririki Island.

South Paray Channel Dredging

#About this project

To improve navigational accessibility from the South Paray Wharf to Iririki Island, Hall Pacific dredged a channel 50m wide, 200m long and 5.5m deep (approximately 46,000m3).

Coral limestone material was used to reclaim part of the port for container space. This will allow 60-metre-long cargo ships to use the channel, cutting significant time off their voyage.
