A crucial activity for marine pipelines, trenching is an art wherein one has to dredge within a very small width of a few metres, over a length of kilometres. This takes precision. It also takes places within the wave break area, thereby making it difficult to dredge with conventional dredging equipment therefore innovation is crucial. Meka Dredging has done several trenches for its sister companies Amma Lines & Meka Infrastructure.
Over the years, we have continuously been innovating and finding better ways to work with our environment. We have been able to execute innovative dredging solutions without explosives and have dredged rock near a Marine Park, thereby not disturbing marine life while delivering the project ssuccessfully.
Rock Dredging is one of the hardest and most tricky of dredging works. Based on the nature of the rock, SPT values, and environment around – be it marine life to buildings, jetties and marine structures, one has to be extremely cautious as rock dredging involves drilling and blasting with explosives and then removal. Meka Dredging has decades of vast experience in executing Rock dredging works.
Reclamation of land is a crucial project activity, wherein land is reclaimed for the purpose of improving land and increasing the useable area of the project. Meka Dredging has reclaimed hundreds of acres across India for its clients, thereby increasing the land value at a very low cost.
Capital Dredging by its definition means dredging for the first time. These projects are complex as the nature of the soil, current, siltation, hydrodynamics are mostly unknown and provide for challenging issues. Meka Dredging has completed over 9 Million m3 of capital dredging in a short span of time.
Maintenance Dredging takes place at existing ports and jetties, wherein there is a continuous need for the berths to be used. Being able to manage the dredging operations, movement of the dredging fleet, while still giving priority to ships is a difficult but important task. Meka Dredging has completed dozens of maintenance dredging works over the years with its fleet of marine dredging equipments.
