Manage your waterways by scheduling maintenance dredging. The build-up of sand and silt into the waterway can decrease the water depth. Larger ships cannot pass through water systems that are not routinely maintained. Maintenance dredging ensures that all water is at a proper navigable depth.
As populations continue to grow, shipping options will be in great demand. New dredging allows you to create a waterway on your land as well as extend what you already have. Not only will this increase capacity to ports and destinations, but it will also create better logistics in the shipments of goods and products.
Providing access to larger vessels is the main goal of deepening dredging. This process includes dredging the bottom of the waterway to create more depth. Deepening dredging also refers to the widening of a waterway by dredging the banks when available. Creating more depth and width in a waterway allows larger and wider vessels to access ports that were unreachable before by creating more overall volume.
While you can usually see a few feet down into the water, it is hard to know exactly what the bottom of a waterway looks like. Hydrographic surveys scan and detect what is beneath the surface. This information can help you determine how large the waterway is, as well as what kind of vessels are appropriate for passage.
Bodies of water are an untapped power and possibility. Encore Dredging Partners can build the platform, pipeline, or subsea structure to help your business grow and expand. These marine infrastructure projects include a full team of professional engineers, mechanics, and waterway experts to build what you need.
