River, canal & channel dredging

How does river dredging work? Over time, sand and silt washes downstream, causing sedimentation to gradually fill rivers, canals and channels. This happens due to natural weathering, erosion and rivers carrying silt. Sedimentation can make waters very shallow, causing floods. It can also make rivers, canals or channels less accessible to a lot of ships. As a result, some deeper lying ships can even get stranded. These problems can have a major impact on tourism and local or international businesses.

Therefore, dredging rivers, canals & channels is very important to maintain the world’s waterways. River dredging describes a type of maintenance dredging, where sediments are removed from the bottom of the waterways. This is done to keep waterways open for inland transport & navigation, as well as to prevent flooding.

Dredge Yard equipment can be specifically customized to perform each of the described river dredging and maintenance duties. Below you can review our suggestions for suitable river dredging equipment, or contact us for more detailed information regarding your project.
