Port of Townsville has released a tender on Qtender for dredging works as part of the $193 million Channel Upgrade Project.

It follows the recent announcement that Holcim Australia had been awarded a key contract to supply rocks as part of the five-year project. 

Port of Townsville said the successful tenderer would be required to remove up to 3.6 million cubic metres of dredge material from the Platypus Channel.

The dredge material will be transported to an unloading facility at the port.

It will be re-used for the construction of a 62ha reclamation area.

This area will accommodate future infrastructure as part of a 30-year Port Expansion Plan.

Most of the capital dredging will be carried out using a backhoe dredge, allowing solid and compact material to be removed from the seabed with minimal turbidity.

Port of Townsville said the back-hoe dredge was slower and more expensive than other types of dredges, but it had the advantage of providing optimum environmental outcomes for Cleveland Bay.

The dredging tenders will close on May 17.
