Canal & channel dredging

Canals and channels are important to ensure efficient navigation, irrigation, power sources, commerce and businesses running smoothly around the world. However, similarly to rivers, sediment and debris also gathers in the bottom of canals and channels. This makes the waterways shallow and creates blockages, which can disturb waterway traffic and other vital activities.  Therefore, maintenance dredging in channels and canals is vital in order to ensure safe access and navigation.

Dredging equipment

We offer equipment for a variety of canal & channel maintenance dredging. Our durable, small-medium sized dredgers are highly efficient in all conditions, locations and materials. Additionally, all dredger types can be specifically customized depending on the project.

We offer Cutter, Auger and Water Injection dredgers, all of which are compact and easily transportable. This allows for fast delivery to even the most remote areas. Furthermore, after use, the dredgers can also be easily removed and stored until it is needed for maintenance again.

Water Injection Dredging is a common method for maintenance dredging in channels and canals. Our Water Injection Dredger ECO 150 is equipped with water jets, which spray water into the sediments to loosen the material. The loose material is transported by the natural current, which means that no discharge line is needed. When applicable, WID is a cost-effective and environmentally sound dredging solution.

Auger ECO 200 is an effective dredger, when precise dredging is required. It can remove sediment layers in a controlled manner, to restore an even water bed. Below you can review more of our suggestions for suitable dredging equipment for canal and channel dredging.
