Dredging Services

Dredging Services

When dredging is required for a company pit, pond, lagoon or vessel, having access to the most advanced manned and unmanned technology and expertise is essential to success. When you partner with Veolia, our experienced personnel and fleet of manned and remotely-operated dredges and sludge pumps of various types, shapes and sizes will ensure you achieve excellent results. Our dredge and pump fleet is designed to efficiently and effectively recover sludge from every conceivable surface area or vessel, including tanks, thickeners, clarifiers and separators. Veolia’s proven safety record will ensure the job is completed using the most environmental and safe approach.


A COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR YOUR DREDGING CHALLENGE

Veolia uses manned and unmanned, remote-operated diesel powered dredge platforms fitted with submersible hydraulic pumps of various sizes, capable of pumping anywhere from 1,500 to 4,500 of gallons per minute. Our dredging equipment is fitted with 15 feet booms, plus we can provide a pumping solution to lower the water level for deeper applications.

As important as advanced technology and powerful equipment, a Veolia dredging project leader will work with you every step of the way and provide a complete service:
  • We provide an expert evaluation of your dredging needs, including distance, elevation and density of materials to be pumped, as well as the possible use of a booster pump to transfer sludge to another location.
  • If the pond or lagoon must be kept in service during dredging, turbidity curtains can be deployed to prevent discharge of suspended solids.
  • We’ll work with you to identify any submerged obstructions or structures to help ensure the safety of all personnel, avoid property damage and keep the project moving.
  • Bumpers and liner guards can be used to allow safe and reliable operation in lined ponds and basins.
  • If your applications or project objectives require washing or manually removing residual sludge left on the pond surfaces after dredging, we can provide these services as well.
