Mechanical dredging for the Société des traversiers du Québec
Québec, since 2009 – Ocean Dredging DM is performing maintenance dredging work at various sites belonging to the Société des traversiers du Québec.
Each year, the river bottom near the wharves in Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive and Isle-aux-Grues must be reworked to ensure safe docking and undocking operations. This work even has to be done twice a year at the wharves of Isle-aux-Coudres and Rivière-du-Loup.
Using one of its five mechanical dredges equipped with buckets of varying capacities, over 80,000 m³ of sediment must be removed and deposited at previously designated overflow sites at sea.
