Marine Dredging - Dredgers Creating Oceanic Gateways: Dredgers of various types and sizes revolutionized the whole concept of building ports. Dredgers turned out to be true workhorses of the oceans engaged in creating shipping channels, deepening the channels, maintaining them and creating new shores by dredging. Dredgers ensure safe passage of ships into ports and safe navigation on inland waters, rivers and oceans. Dredges perform a number important jobs including: digging and building channels, creating new ports and irrigation systems, provide mobility for men and goods, repair the costal defenses, raise the level of beaches, reclaim land for industry, housing and farming, extract ores, minerals and sand in the most economical manner, improve the environment by cleaning seabed and riverbed and removing oil spills. The process of dredging involves a dredger that floats on the water and pumps the material through a temporary pipeline to an off-site location, often several thousand feet away. This dredge acts like a giant floating vacuum suction equipment removing sediment very precisely. For more details on Dredging, visit http://www.video.marinebiztv.com
