Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. JNPT Channel dredging assistance March 2013 to April 2013
April 2013

For dredging of the JNPT channel, Boskalis needed a salvage operation to clear the debris at the seabed first. SMIT Salvage, the in-house salvage team was contracted for the scope. FC Rija was the crane selected to carry out the operation with the diving team on the SCI 02 which doubled as the anchor handling tug and accommodation platform for the team. A wide range of debris was cleared with a mechanical orange-peel grab rigged on the crane. The work was done to the complete satisfaction of the clients.
