Under the South West Regional Prime Contract, Boskalis Westminster Limited (BWL) provides maintenance dredging services together with siltation monitoring and application/management of statutory licences, for Devonport, Portsmouth and SMC Marchwood.

More targeted maintenance dredging requires increased client involvement as it demands integration and knowledge of the Navy’s operational requirements and priorities, which would normally be confidential. With reduced budget and evaluating realistic versus aspirational navigational requirements, the method for the dredging works essentially became a charter, whilst responsibility for surveys and licensing stayed the same. The vessel is deployed, at a daily rate, for a period denoted by the charter time available within the budget. Operational information, knowledge and experience gained through the initial contract is utilised to maximise production.
