After the consultancy tender to be held on February 27, it was reported that the company that won the tender will prepare the projects and deliver them to IZSU within a year.
Additional dredgers, cranes and buoys
Providing information about the project they have carried out together with TCDD in order to make the Gulf süre swimable ini and the capacity and efficiency of the Port of Izmir, İZSU officials stated that they have implemented the whole tender process step by step following the EIA permission for the screening of the circulation channel. 27 In addition to the project consultancy tender to be held in February, İZSU officials stated that they need additional scavenger ship for the transmission of the scanned materials to the recovery area, the crane and the additional equipment needed to convey the material to the ponds. stating that they will go to the tender continued as follows:
. We will transport the material we scanned with this equipment to the recycling area next to the Çiğli Waste Water Treatment Plant. This is an area of 1.2 million square meters. Here we will make 4 pieces dewatering pool.
