Al-Fartousi said, in a statement reported by Al-Sabah newspaper, which was seen by "The Information", that "the company is currently working in coordination with the Ministry to remove the sinking and the marine pieces that impede the movement of marine navigation, and to clean the navigation channels from them, in order to increase the navigational depths."
He added that "the port excavators were able to achieve their plan by digging approximately 3 million cubic meters during the past year, and this quantity contributed to increasing the depths to reach 11 meters at the lowest level of the islands, and the widening of the Umm Qasr River and its increase in its width."
Al-Fartousi pointed out that “the marine drilling department aims to deliver the navigation channels to their design depths and operate the largest number of rigs affiliated with the ports, which contributes to the entry of ships of giant weights and anchoring them on the docks of the ports and increasing the movement of trade exchange in them.” finished/25
