Dredge Barge Assemblies

Portable marine dredges are expensive and difficult to mobilize.

Instead, many stream and inshore dredging jobs are more quickly and economically performed with Flexifloat modular barge assemblies and conventional excavating equipment, including:

  • clamshells
  • draglines
  • backhoes

"U"-shaped Flexifloat assemblies have 360-degree stability for bucket casting. Additionally, the center opening of the assembly enables full utilization of the excavator's reach and digging capacity. Holding spud attachments are available in several sizes and are used to anchor the barge against current and to resist the lateral digging forces generated by the machine.
