Venta river project

Ventspils Port Authority/European Investment Bank

The Port of Ventspils sees a growing demand for access to the port of larger and deeper drafting vessels. To accommodate this demand, the port initiated the so called Venta River Project. This project is co-financed by the European Investment Bank.

The project concerns the dredging of the sea access channel to the port of Ventspils, dredging of the Venta River, the upgrading of some 1,200 meter of quay and the construction of 500 meter of new quay.

Tender documents, tender procedure and inspection visits to the site on behalf of the financier, the EIB, were carried out by Witteveen+Bos. The consultants were to inspect the quality, quantity and progress for the project during the execution of the works.
