Due to extraordinary ebb, Port Pilots sent the latest bathymetry carried out in access channel of San Nicolas Port (Puerto Nuevo Terminal), showing a river's depth of 6.90 mts at datum.
Under present circumstances, Port Pilots informed that maximum draft for safe manoeuvres should be considered as follows:
DEPTH AT DATUM - UNDER KEEL CLEARANCE + DAILY RIVER HEIGHT = MAX SAILING DRAFT
As a consequence of this, San Nicolas Port Administration has hired a dredge named "DASA I" to perform dredging operations in order to improve depth in the access channel. Dredging jobs began last friday 20th/July and it is expected they will last abt 10 days (wog).
Once dredge completes its task, a new bathymetry will be performed to determine the new draft at datum.
