Pelican was a contract dredge it has retired. This new one is owned by Gippsland Ports.

Ah I see. That's good news. Will always have its services. Will it only work the bar? Or the whole lake system where/if needed

It will maintain the bar and the channel up to Bullock Island. It may do a few jobs up the Lake. It will take the work load of the Kalimna. The Kalimna spends most of it's time clearing sand around Bullock island. Once everything is sorted then the Kalimna will go and do the entrance to the Tambo and the Mitchell. Both these river mouths have been approved for dredging but the Kalimna has not been able to get there due to work load.
