Shallow Water Dredging Challenges Overcome

Shallow water dredging has never been an easy enterprise for custodians entrusted with the work. Generally speaking, dredging work has always been informed by a fine but precarious dividing line between the shallowest sections of a river plain, lake or dam, and the conventional dredging of deeper and far wider areas. Today, challenges can be overcome through the use of a multi-purpose amphibious dredger. This dredger has the ability to singlehandedly cover all aspects of shallow water, ranging from the dry ground up to depths of six meters (or nineteen feet).

The amphibious dredger has been designed and certified for covering water work and on-land use. Suction dredging, excavating work, pile driving and raking all gets done with a single and versatile operating device. Taking all things into account, custodians will come to appreciate the work, using just this single device, turning out to be a sustainable development. This will include a drastic reduction in operating time and costs.

The multi-purpose dredger replaces the work usually done by a number of machines and its related units. The machine is efficient and is able to anchor on land surfaces and below water surfaces stably. The device is fully mobile. All work carried out is now safe. Bureau Veritas has approved the use of this dredger. Before it is put to use, each dredger is inspected by recognized local marine authority. This affirms the device’s safety and stability.

Apart from being an amphibious vehicle, the dredger is also able to float on the water’s surface. Self-propelled, it needs no man-handling. A maximum speed of four knots is possible. And amazingly, this dredger walks on dry ground! As a sustainable development, the use of this vessels makes for cleaner and less polluted rivers, dams, lakes and public ponds and pools.
