A contract to infill Wellington Dock, providing additional land for the extension of the adjacent United Utilities wastewater treatment plant, with approximately 250,000m³ of sand from the Westminster Gravels licensed winning area 457.

For this contract, previous knowledge from completing similar works at Le Harve was adopted with respect to fabricating bespoke shore connection frames to link the floating line and sinker line. The sinker line was installed across Sandon Half Tide Dock to enable passage for vessels into Bramley Moore Dock. The trailing suction hopper dredger, Shoreway, dredged the material from Area 457 then transported it to the fill site at Wellington Dock.
