Hamburg’s long battle to deepen and widen the fairway was finally won last year, but now a commercial dispute could delay it still further.

 

German media have reported that the dispute concerns the stretch of the fairway between Wedel and Cuxhaven, for which the federal Water and Shipping Administration (Wasser -und Schiffahrtsdirektion des Bundes) is responsible.

 

Port companies say that the complaint could hold up works by at least three months.

 

A spokesperson for WSB confirmed that two applications for review have been submitted regarding the intended order placement for widening and deepening the fairway. The cases will be dealt with by the federal Cartel Office (Bundeskartellamt).

 

It is understood that the complaints came from Royal Boskalis and Van Oord. Boskalis stated that it presented the lowest offer, on December 19th, 2018. The value of the order is €200M it is understood that a contractor from Belgium swas appointed. The work is supposed to commence in Q2 this year.
