Superior Offshore mobilises for DHEW projectProjects and Operations // September 11, 2007
Superior Offshore International has announced that its subsidiary, Superior Offshore South Africa (PTY) Ltd, has mobilized for the Durban Harbor Entrance Widening & Deepening, or DHEW, project in Durban, South Africa.
The Dredging International/Group 5 consortium was awarded the DHEW project, with a planned completion date of March 2010.
Serving as a major subcontractor to the consortium, Superior Offshore will provide subsea demolition services and ongoing diving and marine support from construction barges.
With an estimated value of US$30 million, the three-year subcontract's scope of work includes the demolition and removal of various harbour structures.
"Superior's involvement with this project is indicative of our strong capabilities in marine civil works on the African continent," said Patrice Chemin, Chief Operating Officer for Superior Offshore. "We will continue to market ourselves to the civil works and subsea construction industries to develop these activities elsewhere in Africa and the Middle East."
