Dredging and silt removal

Cooks Marine Services have a fleet of specialised marine equipment for a range of operations, including dredging, de-silting (silt removal), through both traditional excavation and modern cutter suction and silt pumping.

Cooks can provide a complete package from inception to site completion. We offer consultation, design, project management and on-site operations. All of our work is carried out to the highest of industry standards. With our knowledge of silt management and dewatering, we offer a comprehensive silt removal, dredging and de-silting package. We can handle projects of all sizes, from small ponds and lakes, wet docks, marinas and settlement lagoons, up to major civil engineering projects, where silt needs to be removed as part of the enabling works.

We often get enquiries from both domestic and commercial clients who are looking to resolve issues of silt that has built up around their asset. It could be a private mooring has become unusable due to the quantity of silt build up. Some commercial marinas suffer built up in areas of little water. Many riparian landowners also have issues of silt build up around flow control structures, such as weirs, flap valves, stop logs, sluice gates etc. If you require any advice, please don’t hesitate to contact our team and we’ll be happy to help.

Cooks offer traditional dredging services, but also modern cutter suction and air lift silt pumping for silt removal. We have specialised hopper barges and clamshell buckets designed to assist in accessing very restricted parts of a watercourse. Cooks understand each project has its own intricacies and ensure our work is carried out in an environmentally sensitive and cost-effective manner. Cooks specialise in projects where ease of access is an issue. Our fleet of specialised marine craft enables us to access the most restrictive of working conditions.

If you have a dredging, de-silting, or silt removal as part of your project then please make an enquiry today.
