Glory Hole Excavation in Canada

Jan De Nul has recently been awarded a contract in Canada by Husky Energy to excavate a so called ‘Glory Hole’ for protection of subsea wellheads at a challenging waterdepth of 135m. This will be a new world record in dredging depth. The work will be executed during this summer with Jan De Nul’s very large trailing hopper dredge ‘Vasco da Gama’, which is the same vessel that executed similar works for the same client 4 years ago.
