We were contracted to do a trial to provide the Broads Authority with evidence of our ability to dredge from one location and use our pumping system to deposit the silt at a location several hundred yards away.

As you can see in the below video, we used our pontoon to float out to the dredging area, and with a pipe floated across the lake deposited the silt in a holding area, making this a much faster project than traditional dredging methods.

Here’s what the Rivers Engineer had to say.

Dear Peter,

As I said on the day, it was a successful trial and showed this system to be a potentially useful tool to the Broads Authority.

Your Sincerely

Mr T Hunter

Rivers Engineer
