C&M Dredging, a Florida based dredging and dewatering contractor, is pleased to announce the addition of ROV dredging services and leasing in North America. C&M has invested in a modern ROV dredge capable of tunnel and tank dredging with a wireless radio remote control. This new addition allows C&M to handle confined space dredging in environments where deploying a manned or floating dredging is not practical.
A recent deployment of the dredge was at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Herbert Hoover Dike at Lake Okeechobee. The ROV was able to enter the confined space without putting operators in danger. Everyone on site was impressed when the ROV outperformed a 6-inch manned auger dredge system.
“Our ROV dredge fits nicely in our equipment portfolio of conventional CSDs, swinging ladder dredges, and auger dredges. It gives us the ability to solve unique challenges and fits nicely with our mantra of ‘right dredge, right job.’ We are now offering the ROV through our standard contract dredging services as well as leasing to other contractors on a monthly basis,” said Christian Miller, President, C&M Dredging, Inc.
