Mexico’s Port of Mazatlán Expects Dredging

The Mexican Port of Mazatlán, in the state of Sinaloa, has opened a dredging tender, which has been delayed since 2013 due to lack of resources. The Mazatlán port administration, or the Administración Portuaria Integral (API), is taking proposals for the tender until December 11, 2017. According to API Mazatlán, the tender is to dredge about 1.3 million cubic meters (1.7 million cubic yards), which are mainly made of rocky materials. The dredging tender, which is described by the API Mazatlán, as part of a modernization project for the port, should bring its depth to 15.2 meters (49.8 feet), from the port’s navigable channel to the Dársena de Ciaboga section. Once awarded, the project should be completed by the first half of 2018.

Dredging at the Mexican Port of Mazatlán is expected to be completed in this year.
