The Newly Dredged Suez Canal
The pyramids symbolise Egypt’s history, but the newly dredged Suez Canal will be the icon of its future. A lot of team work was needed to achieve the best results: records were broken, ships were mobilised from all over the globe, and the dredging work went on 24 hours a day. On 5 August 2014 the starting signal was given for this enormous dredging project; one of the largest and most iconic maritime projects of our time, twenty-one cutter suction dredgers were deployed with the largest and most powerful dredgers in the world, and completed within one year.
Unisite supplied the large quantities of dredging pipeline including sink pipes, shore pipes with flanges, floating pipes, pontoons and dredger spare equipment to support customers to complete the work and left its mark on the world with this megaproject.
