Managing Director of the company, Mr. Regiwell Francis said that some of those projects that are being considered are the Christophe Harbour Marina on the Southeast Peninsula and the second phase of the dredging of the great salt pond.
Francis indicated that St. Kitts marine is equally paying attention to the potential for contracts with the Nevis Air and Sea Ports Authority (NASPA), The St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) and the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) for the maintenance dredging that would be required for the sea port and marinas in St. Kitts and Nevis in upcoming months.”
He said SKMW realizes to get jobs one needs to have the equipment to do them.
Mr. Regiwell Francis made the statement as he announced the assembling of an 18″ Dredge Master dredge. “The Gantry”, which is named after his son, is to be used on the marina at the Christophe Harbour project.
“SKMW has a 12-inch cutter head dredge currently dredging the marina for Christophe
Harbour and we will be introducing our new to St. Kitts 18-inch dredge to the project as a second dredge to speed up the work,” said Mr. Francis.
He disclosed that the dredge will move more than twice the amount of material of the present dredge and with both dredges pumping “we are hoping to complete the job on schedule.”
