Unblocking canals and rivers
Dredging is also in good hands with Van Aalsburg BV. Dredging is the removal of sand, silt, waste and plant and tree remains from the water bottom. We specialize in dredging on water only 0.5 to 3 meters deep. Our equipment can also work water up to 15 meters deep, this may be necessary for large projects.
Dredging ensures that waterways or channels become shallow or even clogged. This hinders shipping traffic and water discharge to the sea. Canals and rivers can then overflow their quays or banks. With all its consequences.
The formation of dredge is a natural and continuous process and therefore dredge must be removed regularly. Contaminated dredge must be disposed of with extra care.
Dredging with a crane can be carried out in different ways: per boat, from a pontoon or from the shore. An efficient solution for every situation. The dredged sediments are transported in hopper barges or pumped. Van Aalsburg B.V. is in possession of a ‘Soil and sediment remediation and intervention in the riverbed’ certificate. This means that we work responsibly and professionally. And yet affordable!
