ST Hudson Engineers Contracted as Dredging Advisors For Deepening of Delaware River

Posted: Updated:

Project to deepen Delaware River Main Channel will also benefit PA and NJ.

Camden, New Jersey, United States of America – March 12, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —

The US Army Corp of Engineers is working towards the completion of the Delaware River Main Channel Deepening Project. They have determined that dredging needs to be performed on the existing forty foot Delaware River Navigation Channel. Extensive studies from the Army Corp found this deepening effort could bring the shipping channel from 40 feet to 45 feet and could be accomplished from Philadelphia Harbor in Pennsylvania to the Beckett Street Terminal in Camden, New Jersey. The Corp of Engineers is aiming for the project to be completed in the year 2017.

To assist in these efforts, S. T. Hudson Engineers, Inc. has been contracted as Dredging Consultants for the duration of the project. Company Spokesperson Leslie Hudson explains why these engineering plans are so crucial. “This project was sponsored by the Philadelphia River Port Authority to allow for larger ships to come though the passage and bring much needed commerce to the entire Delaware Valley.”

Hudson adds that deepening the Delaware River Navigation Channel will benefit all three states it travels through. “Right now waterfront facilities in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Camden, New Jersey are also affected. These waterfronts were built years ago in accordance with the original 40 foot channel depth that will change when this project is completed in 2017.”

STHE was chosen by the US Army Corp of Engineers based on a long and extensive previous track record of note. Leslie Hudson further elaborates, “We are prepared to assist facilities that must reconstruct to adjust to the new depth of the channel. We accomplish these results by using state-of-the art survey methods. These include our use of side scan, scanning sonar, and diver investigations of underwater areas. As pioneers in the field, we are known for developing innovative and cost-effective designs for the rehabilitation of all types of port and marine terminal facilities.”

Hudson adds that “Our company has over 46 years of experience working on piers, wharves, loading platforms, mooring structures, and bulkheads in the Delaware Valley.” Leslie Hudson is a proud member of this American family who have provided Marine Engineering and Dock Building to the area for six generations now. “Our President Robert (Rob) S. Hudson, P.E. is the third generation (like his father and grandfather) to work at Hudson Engineers. He continues the Hudson legacy of providing all of our clients with superior engineering services for a wide variety of waterfront structures.”
