Marina Dredging

Printer Friendly PDF

The accumulation of silt, sand, and other sediments in harbors around the world leads to boats running aground, damaged hulls, navigation issues, and lost business to neighboring marinas with proper maintenance programs. Marina dredging is often an annual activity for some marina operators while it is once in ten years for others. If a marina needs to dredge at least once every two years then the rule of thumb is that it makes more economical sense to buy a dredge rather than hire a contractor.

The Versi-Dredge is ideal for marinas as the system can clean anywhere from 6.7m (22 ft.) to 9.1m (30 ft.) depth. The Versi-Dredge can maneuver between docks as narrow as 12 ft. wide and clean under them with additional dredge ladder extensions. The Versi-Dredge can also clean out large marina basins and keep all approach channels clear. The patented Starwheel Drive self-propulsion system allows marina operators to dredge anytime year round without shutting down the entire marina. The patented Starwheel Drive self-propulsion system does not require anchors or cables and therefore prevents damage to boat hulls and docks which is a common occurrence with cable driven dredges. Also, no additional labor is required other than a single operator. Cable driven dredges require multiple laborers to set and re-set anchors and cables every time the dredge moves to the next dredge slip. This is time consuming and the Starwheel Drive self-propulsion system will reduce costs in the first dredging season.

The price of a complete dredge system can pay itself off in less than 2 uses by a typical medium size marina. IMS can provide estimated operating and capex costs to show buyers how they can save money. In addition, lease / purchase options are available for North American marina operators.

The Versi-Dredge is the least invasive dredge available on the global market for marina dredging operations. No barges for disposal, no anchors, no swing wires, and never a need to remove docks or pilings to get the job done.
