About BIG Dredging

For over 400 years the Dutch have kept their feet dry and todays Dutch water management is a much sought after tool
for other countries battling these problems.

There are mainly 2 types of dredging, either coming from sea, or dredging rivers, lakes and ports. At BIG Dredging we focus on the last chapter, rivers, lakes and ports. Decades or sometimes centuries of sediment descent urge countries to rehabilitate the river-beds. Lowering the river-beds makes the river navigable again, and prevents flooding during the rain-season. Our equipment is both flexible in handling and production, offering you a unique combination of know-how and performance.

No situation is ever the same, not in circumstances, nor in possibilities. This makes that our brochure highlights the essentials of our equipment, but your solution will always be of bespoken nature.

BIG Dredging is the specialist in highly efficient dredging tools of the reputed brand Holland Dredge Design, member of the BIG Group of Companies. We produce our own extensive standard range of robust and powerful dredgers, cutter dredgers, submersible dredging pumps, tools and more, carried on stock.
