Dredging

The focal points of our services in the area of dredging lie in the manufacture of filling land areas and carrying out river revetment measures.

Coasts and waterways have always been exposed to constant change due to tides and weather. Climate change and extreme weather events accelerate this change even more. Beaches disappear, coastlines change and waterways used for centuries silt up. In order to counter this or even to create new possibilities, we use our skills and our extensive specialist equipment for our customers’ projects.

Both in harbour facilities and on the open seas , the quality of our dredging work is ensured by the combination of experienced captains, experienced dredgermen and the latest technology – even under the most difficult conditions. Boskalis HIRDES itself has a large fleet, which can be expanded at any time with the Group’s own machinery from the Boskalis Group, in order to match the specific conditions. From the hopper dredger to the motorised slot hopper barges – the entire range of latest technology is ready for use at any time.
