River, canal & channel dredging

River restorationriver maintenance and channel maintenance is usually achieved by dredging. How does river, channel and canal dredging work? Over time, sand, silt and debris (branches, logs, waste) flow downstream. This happens due to natural weathering, erosion and rivers carrying silt. If not maintained, the materials will accumulate and create a blockage, which restricts natural river or channel flow and makes the waters very shallow. Consequently, waterways become less accessible to a lot of ships and flooding can occur. This can result in property damage, major negative impact on tourism and local businesses, and can even be life-threatening.

River dredging, canal and channel maintenance  describes blockage removal to maintain natural waterflow. Accordingly, regular maintenance is necessary to avoid potential problems and disasters.

Dredging Equipment

We offer equipment for a variety of river dredging, restoration and maintenance duties. For example, sand mining, channel deepening, desilting rivers and flood control dredging. We manufacture durable dredgers to ensure effective performance in all conditions, including strong river currents. Additionally, all dredger types can be specifically customized (e.g. increasing swing length, including booster stations) depending on the project.

We offer Cutter, Auger and Plain suction dredgers, all of which are compact and easily transportable. This allows for fast delivery to project site, either in an assembled state by a truck, or disassembled in containers. Furthermore, after usage, the dredger can also be easily removed and stored until it is needed for maintenance again.

Below you can review our suggestions for suitable dredging equipment for this application. If you would like some expert advice regarding your project and our equipment, call +31 85 3035 866 or fill in the contact form.
