Hydrographic Company is looking into investing about RUB 20 billion in construction of its own dredging fleet, Aleksandr Bengert, General Director of Hydrographic Company, said at the 5th International Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” being held by IAA PortNews in Moscow.

According to the speaker, maintenance dredging in the Arctic will make about 5 million cbm per year from 2023-24. That entails the need to involve a certain number of specialized vessels.
