Rivers, lakes, waterways, lagoons and major industrial ports and harbors are often confronted with severe environmental problems of contaminated soils. These soils need to be removed in a controlled manner minimizing the spreading of the pollutant into the surrounding environment. After dredging these types soils are pumped ashore for further processing, dewatering, storage or disposal.
The ECO dredgers are the equipment of choice to dredge these polluted soils. The submerged dredge pump in combination with the auger excavating tools give outstanding dredging performance avoiding dispersion of pollutants.
