Jan de Nul to Deepen Callao Channel in Peru

On September 28, the Jan De Nul Group signed a contract with the Peruvian Government to deepen the Port of Callao entrance channel from the existing 14 meters (46 feet) to 16 meters (52.5 feet). The deepening will make Callao one of the deepest container and general cargo ports on the Latin American Pacific Coast. The work also includes widening the entrance mouth of the harbor, involving partial demolition of the breakwater, and reconstruction and piling works.
