Removing large parts of the seabed and dumping it elsewhere can have a major impact on the ecosystem, particularly sensitive areas such as coral reefs and fish nurseries. Sediment can smother seagrasses, which are the key food source of dugongs and sea turtles, and damage corals.

The environmental impact of dredging activities has been a point of discussion for a long period. ... Legislation has been a key driver for the balance with ecology, however, execution of dredging projects in a more sustainable way can also present important social and economical benefits

Dredging impacts marine organisms negatively through entrainment, habitat degradation, noise, remobilization of contaminants, sedimentation, and increases in suspended sediment concentrations.

Oceanus® has redesigned small-scale dredging by using Oceanus Flexible Dredging, making it more sustainable, efficient, and cost-productive.

With our Flexible Dredging services, we can provide environmental dredging services with great precision, protecting grasslands, reefs, and other organisms.

Our Flexible Dredging System is Electric, Submersible, and Soundproof.

Our dredging services can also be robotized, which can improve productivity for night operations and deep dredging operations.

Pros of Using Oceanus Flexible Dredges
  • Cost-Effective.
  • Operated by Robotics and Divers in harsh, dangerous, deep, and reduced space situations.
  • Environmental Precision.
  • Electric, Submersible, and Soundless.
  • Can work in less than 30cm of water depth.
  • Can be shipped in a container and assembled in any remote area or port, Marinas, Dams, Lagoons, Rivers and Islands.
  • Our Flexible Dredging system can pump over 800m distances and can be also supported by a second Flexible Dredge and connect our pumps in series to pump over 3.5Km, we can also offer our Self Propelled Flexible Hopper System that allows us to transport extracted materials in a production train of floating hopper barges and transport it to distances of to 30Km.
