“Facts About Dredging Plant and Equipment” describes the specialised equipment that has been developed to perform various and specific dredging operations.
“Facts About Backhoe Dredgers” describes how modern backhoes work to excavate a dredging site and when and where they are the appropriate equipment choice.
An auger dredger has an environmentally sound cutting tool that lies horizontally on the seabed, working precisely to loosen thin layers of sediment.
A water injection dredger injects large volumes of water into the waterbed, fluidising the sediment so that it can flow naturally to other deeper areas.
Tugs and tows are used for moving non-propelled dredging equipment over long and short distances for a variety of purposes.
Trailing suction hopper dredgers or “trailers”, are self-propelled ships with hoppers, which are storage areas in the hull for keeping dredged material.
Plain suction dredgers are stationary dredgers positioned with wires and with at least one dredge pump connected to a suction pipe and a delivery pipe.
