Dredge Transport Services

Dredging is the term meaning to take material underwater, and transfer it to another location within the same waterway or body of water - and it has many applications. It’s also carried out by many different types of equipment, which fall into two main categories of either suction or mechanical dredging. You may have an auger suction system, bucket dredger or backhoe dredger - or one of the other styles (1).

Shipping Your Dredge

The exact type, size and weight of your particular dredging equipment - will determine the best way to transport it. Built to float in shallow water, most dredges will need substantial dismantling prior to shipping. However, if your dredge can be floated to a traversable waterway, it’s possible that over the water transport will be possible. 

Though your dredge may be able to travel under its own power, this is often not feasible - as they’re built to navigate smooth and shallow waters. Dredges are also often painfully slow, when attempting to traverse long distances.

We Have Many Options Available

Submersion boat transport may be an option, where a boat is guided over a transport ship that’s just below the water. Once the dredge is safely in place, the submersion transport empties the water in its ballast tanks, and rises to the surface - with your dredge now in place on its deck.

Other transport options may be appropriate instead, especially if you’ll be scrapping your dredge for parts or need parts brought in for repairs. Over the road transport for this scenario, will likely be the most economic and efficient solution.
