Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. Awarded Dredging Contract

by | Aug 4, 2022 | Maritime Law

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced that Houston-based Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. was awarded a contract to perform dredging work at the Tampa Harbor.  The contract is for almost $13 million.  The project will result in dredging in Egmont Cut-1, Egmont Cut-2, Mullet Key and Cut-A..  The expected completion date is January 31, 2023.

Despite the importance of a project like this to the local economy, safe dredging companies like Great Lakes must perform regular maintenance and inspections in order to ensure the safety of their crew members.  When dredge operators fail to conduct regular maintenance and inspection of the equipment on their vessels, dangerous incidents can result.  This not only puts the lives of hardworking seamen at risk, but can also endanger members of the public.
