Whether for customers from industry or the municipal sector, the suction dredge has a diverse range of applications

You can benefit from our suction dredge services

Suction dredges can be deployed quickly and allow for fast excavation without damage while minimising transport and environmental pollution. They are used wherever conventional hydraulic excavation machines cannot be deployed due to the high risk of damage or the prevailing environmental conditions.
