Site problems to solve
The very old bridge had a weight restriction and overhead power lines restricted access, making it impossible to dredge and de-silt safely by conventional means using an excavator. On top of this a power cable had been laid below the river bed.
Dewatering reduces waste by 75%
Then using our high-tech dewatering rig we could return the water and take the dry ‘caked’ waste to an approved local waste site for disposal. The waste was reduced by 75% using this process minimising transportation and waste costs.
Beauty spot preservered
Thornbourgh Mill is a grade II listed building surrounded by picturesque countryside so it was imperative the waste was removed and the nature preserved.
Clients very impressed
“The whole project went very well, was closely managed and from setup to completion took 8 days” quoted Mike Reeve.
