Dredging Roundtable - U.S. Dredgers Weigh in on Infrastructure,
U.S. Capabilities and the road ahead.

Domestic dredging firms face many challenges in the
coming months and years. At the same time, opportunities
abound in a market and political climate that
seems to beg for infrastructure upgrades, especially when it
comes to harbors and inland waterways. Weighing in this edition
on all of that – and more – are three U.S.-based dredging
firms; Callan Marine, Cashman Dredging, and Weeks Marine.

Great Lakes Announces Receipt of $70 Million San Jacinto Award

OAK BROOK, Ill., July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation ("Great Lakes") (GLDD), the largest provider of dredging services in the United States and a major provider of environmental and infrastructure services announced today the receipt of a $69.8 million award on the San Jacinto River in Houston, Texas. 


This unique and challenging project is the first major Houston-area flood-control project after Hurricane Harvey and will restore a 2 mile-long stretch of the San Jacinto River to its pre-Harvey state. After the storm passed and flooding subsided, a sandbar remained blocking an important drainage route. The State of Texas requested emergency assistance from FEMA which then chose to use the expertise of the United States Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District to manage the project. This project is one step in the local, state and federal governments’ efforts to reduce the risk of flooding in this community.

With a long history of working in Texas, Great Lakes is proud to be chosen to execute this project. Great Lakes’ Rivers and Lakes division will work with the Galveston District to dredge approximately 1.8 million cubic yards of material and has already begun mobilizing for this high priority project which will feature multiple portable dredges and booster pumps as well as 10 miles of slurry pipelines. Great Lakes will partner with Callan Marine of Galveston which will provide one of the dredges for the project.

David Simonelli, President Dredging commented, “We are excited to work with the Galveston District and Callan Marine on this important project to improve the San Jacinto River capacity after the devastation brought by Hurricane Harvey and the corresponding flooding. This project is ideally suited for our Rivers and Lakes division and will keep our equipment busy into the second quarter of 2019. In addition to the recent awards announced last week, this project helps us to maintain our position as the nation’s leading dredging contractor.”

In 2017, the U.S.-flagged hopper dredging fleet capacity increased by 34% with the addition of two large new-build vessels built in U.S shipyards by U.S. workers. In fact, the U.S. dredging industry is amid a $1 billion-plus capital construction program. New investments include four large cutter suction dredges, two large hopper dredges and approximately 50 barges built in shipyards across the U.S. including Eastern Shipbuilding, C&C Marine Shipyard, Corn Island Shipyard, Conrad Shipyard and Halimar Shipyard.

Callan Marine Provides Artificial Reefs for Texas Parks and Wildlife

Callan Marine assisted in building the reefs that were deployed for this unique Texas Parks and Wildlife project.

Two new artificial reefs are now in place in the Gulf of Mexico, just six miles off the coast of Port O’Connor. The nearshore reefs will create marine habitat that will attract a variety of sea creatures, which will in turn draw anglers and divers for recreational opportunities.


Callan Marine Assists in "Releasing the Kraken" for Texas Parks and Wildlife

With so many miles of coastal bottom in the Texas Gulf Coast and very little reef structure for fish to feed upon, Texas Parks and Wildlife has created an Artificial Reef Program that consists of everything from toppled oil rigs to man-made reef balls. Once these structures are encrusted with plants and animals that create habitat, the fish come and the fishermen come too. The latest offering to the reef program is a 371-foot cargo ship called The Kraken.
