Instead of utilizing the traditional dredge approach of maximizing removal quantities, Brennan incorporates surgical dredge procedures to remove only targeted material defined during the project design process. Whether removal methods include hydraulic or mechanical dredging, we can meet or exceed precision environmental dredging expectations. This is accomplished using a wide range of specialty tools, instruments, and software that are combined to allow the dredge operator to see where the bucket or cutter head is in relation to the design prism. The operator is then able to control the amount of sediment removed, while following contours set in a 3-dimensional model.
Methods of Environmental Dredging
- Hydraulic Cutter Head Dredging
- Hydraulic cutter head dredging is one of the most efficient ways of removing and transporting contaminated sediment. It does not require multiple handlings, thus reducing the likelihood of cross contamination during slurry transport. – Learn More
- Environmental Clamshell Bucket Dredging
- Environmental clamshell bucket dredging is a form of mechanical dredging that is also commonly used to remove contaminated sediments. This method can reduce the amount of water that will need treatment during the sediment processing steps of the project. – Learn More
- Adaptive Dredge Solutions
- Throughout our involvement on environmental dredging projects, we have encountered many challenges. The ability to respond and adapt to these challenges is often the difference between success and failure, and is what has set us apart. – Learn More
