Dredging approval sought to accommodate return of QE2
46,000 cubic metres of material needs removing before the vessel can berth

Cheung Chi-fai
4 October 2004
South China Morning Post

Approval is being sought to dredge the seabed alongside the Ocean Terminal piers in Tsim Sha Tsui to prepare for the return of the cruise liner Queen Elizabeth 2 early next year.

The work would involve the removal of about 46,000 cubic metres of material, much of it contaminated mud containing heavy metals.

Terminal operators Harbour City Estates said the work was necessary to ensure a depth of 11 metres at Hong Kong's only cruise terminal for the liner, which has a draught of 9.7 metres.

The company has sought approval from the Environmental Protection Department for a permit to allow dredging work to start.

It said the 70,000-tonne QE2, operated by the Cunard Line, which also operates the world's newest and largest cruise liner the Queen Mary 2, would arrive in Hong Kong in early March.

The liner can accommodate about 1,900 passengers and 1,000 crew. It visited the city for three days in March this year when it docked at the Kwai Chung container port.

The terminal operator said an echo-sounding device had found excessive deposits of sediment with an average depth of 50cm in the proposed dredging area.

The mud would be dumped in seabed pits at a designated site at East Sha Chau, off the north of Lantau Island.

If approval is given, the work is expected to begin in November and be completed in January.

Harbour City Estates technical manager Ng Hok-shing said regular dredging was needed to maintain sufficient depth.

"We do it at regular intervals of four to five years and we do not find the deposition of sediment has been faster than we expected.

"We just want to be more cautious to prepare for the return of the liner and we want to make sure that all risks are ruled out," he said.

Mr Ng said the company wanted to make the berth deep enough for the QE2 and had no intention of digging deeper to accommodate larger ships.

Because of the limitations of the terminal, which opened in 1966, the government is seeking sites to build a new cruise terminal to accommodate larger vessels. Sites being considered include the old Kai Tak airport. Li Ka-shing has also proposed one in Hunghom.

Thanks for all the pics- very cool!

How long would the trip take from HK to Macau? Are there any "extended" routes say from Hong Kong to the Shanghai area? Would that ever be feasible?

The ferry ride from Hong Kong to Macau is about an hour long. Other than cruises, there is no extended route to Shanghai. The best way is still to fly (about 2 hours).

New World First Ferry is jointly owned by Chow Tai Fook Enterprises Limited and NWS Holdings Limited ("NWS Holdings"). First Ferry was established in November 1999, and commenced its service on 15 January 2000, and operates a total of ten outlying and inner harbour ferry routes at present.

Under the same umbrella, New World First Ferry Servicos Maritimos (Macau) Limitada [First Ferry (Macau)] has operated ferry service between Macau and Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong since January 2000.

Fleet
Upon commencement of service in early 2000, First Ferry and First Ferry (Macau) invested over HK$150 million to acquire a fleet of 15 vessels and auxiliary assets and to implement a series of service enhancement programmes.

First Ferry has committed over HK$400 million to acquire a new fleet of 13 high-speed catamarans since 2000. Customer friendly and environmental friendly are the major themes of new vessels; they are double deck catamarans with maximum speed ranging from 26 to 43.5 knots while passenger capacity over 200 to 400.

Currently, First Ferry and First Ferry (Macau) operate eleven routes of ferry services.

There is a shipyard on the north shores of Tsing Yi Island. Sometimes the odd Star Ferry is parked there for servicing. Here are some photos by je1672+EK1037+GW3430 from a Hong Kong transport forum :
