Barge DRP 120 en fonctionnement

Desilting and Dredging Barge Hire

Multifunctional remote-control barges for pumping operations in ports, ponds or mining ponds

Over time, water body can transform with the accumulation of silt and sediments on their bottom.
These environments are often complex and difficult to reach, so suitable equipment such as a barge may be needed to undertake cleaning operations: desilting, dredging or sludging.

Our remote-controlled barges have been designed to operate precisely in narrow and/or shallow basins.

They can be used for these specific applications:

  • desilting of storage pond/holding basin and industrial pools
  • lagooning of the pond
  • desilting and dredging on dams that are difficult to access
  • dredging and sludging on reduced areas of locks and canals
  • pumping and destructuration of mineral or organic muds in ponds
