Dredging & Reclamation

Dredging & Reclamation in Kenya & East Africa

What is dredging?

Dredging refers to the underwater excavation of silt, soil, and sand. The process of dredging comprises the below-mentioned steps:

  • Underwater Dredging: This is done by deploying backhoe dredgers / grab dredgers/cutter suction dredgers and Trailer suction dredgers
  • Transporting the dredged material


Our Objectives

Navigation: To build basins, harbors, jetties, canals, and other facilities and/or to develop, maintain, expand, or otherwise improve essential navigation connections to inland harbors and ports, so as to promote transportation of people, material, and equipment using the waterways. 

Construction and Reclamation: To supply construction materials like sand, clay, gravel, and shell. To provide landfills, including the construction of residential and industrial areas, dams, airports and highways, etc.

Flood Control: To improve or maintain the discharge or flow capabilities of channels, rivers, and other waterways by maintaining or enlarging the cross section or by re-aligning the water courses.
Environmental Remediation: To remove or clean up the sub-aqueous or underwater pollutants from contaminated water bodies to improve the quality of water. As a matter of fact, dredging contributes a lot to the development, environmental and economic sectors of most countries.
