CT Systems and precise dredging operations

Dredging operations using hydraulic cranes and a specially adapted VIKING software package.

On the left side 2 examples are shown. The bottom picture shows a theoretical profile in green and a last sounding in red. The precision of the vertical position depends on the kind of equipment installed, but is usually around 5 cm. The horizontal position is a function of the GPS equipment in use. Using RTK/LRK a precision of a mere 3-4 centimetres can be achieved.

A standard installation consists of the following items:

  • Magellan, Aquarius LRK/GPS
  • Magellan, 3011 GPS compass
  • Industrial mini PC
  • TFT flat screen
  • DC/AC converter
  • CTS Tidal device, if needed

Some samples of projects in Europe:

  • HSL project
  • Dreding/construction in Texel and Den Helder harbour
  • Dredging projects in:
    o Wijk bij Duurstede
    o Dordrecht
    o Durban, South Africa
  • Construction/dredging in Raamsdonkveer
  • Dredging canals in Middelburg
  • Dredging in Woerden
  • Johan Friso haven Rotterdam
  • Dredging project Antwerpen
  • Harbour dredging in:
    o Duinkerken
    o Treport
    o Boulogne
