McNally Construction wins dredging contract for Gros-Cacouna port
A $2.4 million contract has been awarded for the dredging of the port of Gros-Cacouna.
“The dredging of the port of Gros-Cacouna is vital for the safe passage of ships,” said Lawrence Cannon, Canada’s Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.
Dredging work will consist of making the maneuvering area’s average depth eight metres and returning the berth depths to 10.2 metres.
Valued at $2,377,500, the work will be undertaken by McNally Construction Inc. and should begin in the following weeks to end before the end of the year.
“While ensuring safe maneuvering for large vessels, accomplishing this dredging project at the Gros-Cacouna port will ensure the continued pursuit of commercial activities at the port”, added Minister Cannon.
The Gros-Cacouna dredging project has undergone an environmental assessment under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Furthermore, during the work, measures will be taken to minimize the impact on normal port activities.
The Gros-Cacouna port is located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, about 15 km northeast of the City of Rivière-du-Loup.
Softwood lumber and pulp as well as paper produced in the region and general merchandise contribute significantly to the volume of products handled at the port.
