Dredging Systems has the equipment and skills to work on underwater pipelines, bridges, wharves, dam walls, pump inlets and other civil / industrial systems.
Dredging Systems specializes in dealing with dredged material, with equipment and skills to dewater, dry, treat and dispose of mud, tailings, sand, weed, rubbish and other underwater material.
Dredging Systems completes both hydraulic work (cutter-suction dredging) and mechanical dredging (excavator and weed rake work).
Dredging Systems has worked in underwater dredging and underwater construction since 1995. It has unique equipment and skills to tackle all dredging, underwater civil, marine weed and underwater clean-up projects. It has successfully completed projects for mining companies, oil refineries, government agencies, marinas and private properties. Dredging Systems’ equipment is built to mine specifications and all teams are trained to work safely and efficiently in large mines and sensitive environmental and historical sites. Dredging Systems operates across Australia, PNG and Singapore.
Dredging Systems used it remote-controlled dredge to clean up the main feature pond at Macquarie University.
Approx. 1000m3 of sludge was pumped into dewatering bags, were it was dried, treated and removed.
The dredging work was able to be completed without disrupting the local fauna and students
Dredging Systems was contracted to remove 30,000 – 40,000m3 of sand building up into the lagoon and dewater the material on the banks. This sand was then used to renourish the local beaches.
Part of the project also involved placing thousands of tonnes of rocks around and under the bridge to halt erosion damage.
Dredging Systems has maintained many coal tailings dams, wash-down bays and other settling ponds in coal mines.
We have the capability and equipment to pump to designated dewatering sites, dewatering geobags, mechanical dewatering plant and back in CHPP treatment plants.
Dredging Systems was asked to dredge parts of the marina and the main channel back to the originally established depth.
The site was fully operational while we were working and is located next to the Great Barrier Reef.
