Maintenance Dredging

FMG were contracted by the operator of an island resort to remove accumulated sand and coral fines from the island’s harbour. The works were executed using our long reach excavator, an articulated dump truck, and bobcat. Silt curtains and strict operating protocols were utilised to protect the sensitive marine environment, with all works being performed under the direct supervision of marine parks representatives. The dredged material was reused on the island for beach replenishment. Pre-works, intermediate, and post-works surveys were produced by hydrographic surveyors to monitor progress. Despite heavy tidal restrictions, the works were completed ahead of time and on budget.
