Environmental dredging describes clean up projects aimed at improving the environment. Rivers, lakes, lagoons and major industrial ports and harbors are often confronted with severe environmental problems of contaminated soils. Contaminants in water endanger both marine and human life, as well as the surrounding environment. Therefore, they need to be removed in a controlled manner minimizing the spreading of the pollutant into the surroundings. After environmental dredging of contaminated soils, they are pumped ashore for further processing, dewatering, storage or disposal.
Our dredgers are the equipment of choice to dredge polluted soils. The submerged dredge pump in combination with the auger excavating tools provide efficient dredging performance avoiding dispersion of pollutants. Additionally, we designed the Adaptive Auger Head, with environmental protection and high efficiency in mind.
