Stuyvesant Deployed to Oil Spill

The hopper dredge Stuyvesant has been deployed to the Gulf of Mexico to deliver sand to the protective berm project along the Louisiana coastline.

The 75-kilometer/45-mile-long berm system will be six feet high, stretching from East Grand Terre Island to Sandy Point, in line with the Chandeleur Islands.

The Stuyvesant is an 11,000-cubic-yard, U.S. flag hopper dredge owned by Royal Boskalis Westminster, and operated by Stuyvesant Dredging Company of Metairie, Louisiana.
