In this final edition of Dredging data, DPC looks at the dredging developments planned in ports around the world
Using IHS Markit Ports and Terminals data, DPC has analysed what kind of projects are being planned or are currently underway in different ports around the world. The map shows only ports that are already in existence and operational and that have recently announced future dredging work. In some cases, work has not yet been assigned to contractors, therefore providing an interesting insight for dredging companies.
Overall, US east coast is ramping up draught capacity to let larger container vessels call at their ports. The same is true for ports in eastern Europe, Poland and Lithuania, which plan to deepen access channels.
