Northern Ireland - River Blackwater

Within the frame of the River Blackwater Drainage Scheme Ghent Dredging has carried out two contracts, notably Contract D and Contract B1.

The first contract (D) was situated in the vicinity of the village of Clogher (Co. Tyrone) and consisted of refurbishing the River Blackwater as well as its tributaries in that area.  Also included in the contract were several underpinnings of existing masonry single and multispan bridges, the construction of culverts and the construction of fish weirs.


Under Contract B1 the River Blackwater has been dredged within the perimeter of the Caledon Estate at Caledon (Co. Tyrone). Dredging has been carried out with our cutter suction dredger Spiere with the aid of a boosterstation to allow for a pumping distance exceeding 3.500m.
