Project Details


The project consists essentially of a dredging work without interventions on the margins and involves the dredging of 24 critical steps. It goes from Km 0 to Km 187.1, including the access channel to the port of Concepción del Uruguay and the channels between Km 187.1 and Km 206.8, Paysandú Port. The longest step has a length of 4.2km, although the average is 1.4km. The average to be extracted at each step is just over 210,000m3. The bed thickness to be dredged at each step can reach up to a little more than one meter. The width of river to dredge is of 100m (until Conception) of bottom plus the lateral slopes of the channel that has trapetic form.
